It's official – Aliens: Colonial Marines Wii U has been cancelled

After keeping quiet about the Wii U version of Aliens: Colonial Marines since the release of its console and PC counterpart, a Sega rep has finally spilt the beans to Kotaku.

Aliens: Colonial Marines Wii U has been officially cancelled.

We are constantly looking at all areas of our business and in this case have made the decision to not continue development of the Wii U version. Rest assured that we have some fantastic developments for Wii U in the pipeline which we will announce at a later date.

This is hardly surprising news considering the intense negative attention both Sega and developer Gearbox have received over both what was a broken game and the scandal surrounding it. The missed release date really gave it away, however this statement is the final nail in the coffin.


Good night sweet prince: And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest!

  • This is good news though, right?

    Poor Aliens franchise. We really need a super awesome game that gives these xenomorphs their just due

    • That awesome game was supposed to be Colonial Marines. I’ve pretty much given up on the franchise at this point. It’s just too far gone now. It’s really sad though.

    i was reading that they not even add acid blood that could hurt the players, i mean how many programmers has gearbox/timegate/sega/taito/bethesda/3drealms/bullfrog and all of the other developers that work on the game. not even one person told the man in charge the acid should hurt people. so disappointing
