Aliens: Colonial Marines is not a "work for hire project," says Gearbox's Randy Pitchford

In a recent interview with Gamespot,Randy Pitchford explained how the team at Gearbox conceptualized its upcoming shooter Aliens: Colonial Marines, and how he will never forgive," co-founder Brian Martel for not including him in a meeting held with Aliens creator Ridley Scott to go over storyboards. Elsewhere in the interview, which is posted in below, Pitchford touches upon the game's asymmetrical competitive multiplayer, as well as the Wii U version of the game - which he seems really enthusiastic about. The interview is a little over 11 minutes long, but it's well worth the watch. Aliens: Colonial Marines is slated for release in northern autumn, and an exact release date should be announced soon. Thanks, Edo.
