Aliens vs. Predator Summary
Can Creative Assembly buck the trend of shoddy Alien games with Alien: Isolation?
CEO Mike Hayes of SEGA West has said there's no current plans for Aliens vs. Predator 2 from them, and explains the IP is rich enough to explore elsewhere. While the success of Rebellion's AvP was high enough that "naturally you would think" a sequel was a sure thing, SEGA "already had" Aliens: Colonial Marines.
Microsoft has announced that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Aliens vs Predator and Rapala Tournament Fishing are now available on Xbox Live Games on Demand, while Sega has also announced that Bayonetta will be available next week.
Major Nelson has revealed the current schedule for the Xbox Live Marketplace so far and it's running a Retro Shooter 'Deal of the Week' from February 7th. XBLA gets Double Fine's Stacking on the 9th for 1200 MSP, and TNT Racers at 800 MSP. Darksiders and COD: Modern Warfare 2 join the mighty GOD.
Publisher Sega has pulled the plug on console patches for Rebellion's Aliens vs. Predator, with the PC version seemingly left to continue. The news came via the Sega forums. The rep has "heard nothing on PC patches", and says they'll "keep fighting internally" for console fixes.
