Aliens: Colonial Marines has been pushed beyond 2011.
According to Gearbox head Randy Pitchford, someone's confused because he assures that Aliens: Colonial Marines has not been delayed at all, saying, "I haven't seen the issue of Edge that the NeoGAF story is referencing or what was printed, but I am certain that I haven't discussed anything specific regarding Aliens: Colonial Marines with anyone beyond emphasising how passionate I am about the title and how committed my studio and I are to making it great."
He continued: "It looks to me like whomever made that post on NeoGAF made an interpretation that could be misleading or inaccurate. I am excited that there is so much interest in the game that stories like this tend to pop up literally out of nowhere and from nothing," he continued, "and I am looking forward to talking more about Aliens: Colonial Marines very soon so that speculation and arbitrariness can be replaced with tangible, reliable and accurate information."
Destructoid also claimed that Gearbox had pushed Aliens: Colonial Marines to work on Borderlands 2, which Pitchford says doesn't exist: "I respect Jim Sterling (Destructoid journalist), and his audience and I'm a little surprised he didn't bother to try to e-mail myself or our folks before extrapolating that NeoGAF post even further. Jim even referenced Borderlands 2? What's Borderlands 2? Bah! And El Oh El!"
SEGA is reportedly planning a full reveal of the game in early 2011.
