The last time there was a big effort to turn the Alien films into video games - just before Ridley Scott started work on Prometheus - was when Sega bought the rights and churned out the legendarily very bad Aliens: Colonial Marines, DS game Aliens Infestation, and the flawed but atmospheric Alien Isolation. It's plausible that he is instead helping out his good friend Geoff Keighley in preparing for an unveiling during The Game Awards 2018, which takes place on December 7.
Cold Iron Studios was acquired by FoxNext, a subsidiary of 20th Century Fox, back in January, and it was announced that the studio was working on a shooter based on the Alien franchise.
Perhaps the strongest clue is that 20th Century Fox trademarked "Alien: Blackout" under the categories which include "game software" and "on-line computer games", visible via the European Union Intellectual Property Office. Look at the tweet above, and you've got a teaser which happens to have a font that is strikingly similar to the ol' Weyland Yutani corporate logo.
We're not due a new instalment in the Alien film franchise anytime soon, but that doesn't mean we won't be getting a video game.
Earlier today, EuroGamer shared some thoughts about the new Alien game's development. Mention of next-gen consoles can be found on the job description of both Matt Highison's page, the studio art director, and formerly the creative director at Cold Iron, as well as on Craig Zinkievich's page, CEO of the company, and whose job description mentions leading a team to create "next-gen gameplay".
Something to look forward to: It looks as if the upcoming video game set in the Alien universe will likely be announced at next week's game awards.
