Trademark Filed for Alien: Isolation; First Details Revealed!

Trademark Filed for Alien: Isolation; First Details Revealed!Despite that it was rather fun to play, Aliens: Colonial Marines had many warts and was a severely flawed shooter that left more than a bad taste in the mouths of many gamers. Now it sounds as if the powers-that-be are looking to right that wrong. We think...

Siliconera spotted a recent trademark filed for Alien: Isolation. The mark covered "computer game and video game software; interactive video game programs; video game discs; etc." Plus, Total War developer Creative Assembly is currently hiring for a "AAA Alien licensed console project."

After a bit of digging, Kotaku, managed to shed some light on exactly what this new project is as follows:

Alien: Isolation we hear will be on both current and next-gen consoles next year. Isolation is developed by the British studio Creative Assembly (Total War); it's a first-person shooter that uses both stealth and horror elements; and it's inspired by games like Dishonored and Bioshock, according to [Kotaku's] source, a person familiar with goings-on at Sega, who spoke under condition of anonymity in the interest of protecting their job.

Perhaps most importantly, [Kotaku's] source says that Sega took the critical reception to Aliens: Colonial Marines very seriously, and the publisher put together a postmortem following the near-unanimously negative reactions to their last Aliens game, which was developed by the studios Gearbox and TimeGate. They want to make sure Isolation is a better game, and according to [Kotaku's] source, it's already been delayed at least onceā€”Sega originally planned to announce the game at E3 of 2013.

Stay tuned.

Nothing compares to the original ALIEN game for the Atari 2600. Amazing gameplay!

They have said the main enemies in the game will be clones and soldiers.

So, y'know, fuck that.

I guess they came up with the big flaw from Colonial Marines being all those pesky aliens.

Amen because in an ALIEN game I really don't want to be fighting xenomorphs; I want to be fighting soldiers and clones.

Why fight cool looking aliens when you can fight nameless generic soldiers?

Well, I for one feel its about time someone made an FPS with generic soldiers as enemies.

I will not give SEGA another chance after the horrendous Colonial Marines which if i remember right this site's reviewer gave a positive review opinions vary i guess but that game blew (IMO).

My ideal Alien game would be developed by Visceral Games. But that will never happen.

Even if it is only marginally better than 'Colonial Marines' it will be a huge step forward. Though based upon the Total War games with Creative Assembly; the gameplay might be fun but it'll be riddled with numerous bugs and glitches.
