Alien: Isolation Trademark Suggests Fox Hasn’t Given Up On Aliens Games

alienscmAfter canceling the Aliens RPG and the problems with Aliens: Colonial Marines, you may have thought the Alien series would get a break. However, it looks like there is another Alien game in development.


Twentieth Century Fox filed a trademark for Alien: Isolation which is for use with computer game and video game software, downloadable mobile software, and decorative magnets. We doubt this will *just* be used for decorative magnets, so our suspicion is Alien: Isolation is a game. The question is who is working on it?

    Maybe it is best this was just left for Decorative magnets considering the recent Alien games track record. But you never know~ I’d say we wait for more info~

  • Espilonarge

    Hopefully it’s not Sega and Gearbox. Those two companies tarnished the Aliens franchise with one of the “worst” things to do to a franchise… claimed it was part of canon when instead it destroyed a huge part of it.

      I don,t know see…i loved The avp game

      • Juan AndrĂ©s Valencia

        AvP was good but Colonial Marines is the game equivalent to the prequel trilogy of Star Wars if it was rushed and unfinished.

  • Warboss Aohd

    maybe uncancel da RPG?

  • Aristides

    How about another WayForward game? XD

  • FlobotingIt

    The one thing I noticed (and this is just complete speculation) Is that the title shares two similarities to the most recent DS title. Aliens: Infestation, in comparison to Alien: Isolation. The subtitles both start with the letter “I”, and they both share the suffix “-tion”. Maybe this is a prequel focused on what happened after the first movie? Maybe it’s for 3DS and PS Vita?

    I still can’t believe Gearbox got away scot free from the trainwreck that was that Alien game. I feel sorry (ish?) for Sega.

  • Brimfyre

    They need to get rid of these horrible subtitles. They are all so bland and meaningless. In 5 years, even if Isolation is good, if I hear the name my mind won’t be able to recall if it is one of the good ones or one of the bad ones cause they all sound the damn same.

    • There’s no S! That’s the big difference! They had several meetings about that S!

      • Ferrick

        i guess they took the ‘S’ away because there’s only one alien in game

  • HalcyonCross

    Coulda sworn that was the berserker armor in the thumbnail from the main page. Got me excited when I saw it out of the corner of my eye.
