Pitchford on Aliens: Colonial Marines for Wii U: "We'll see."

#1AZHood321Posted 3/22/2013 3:43:32 PM

Aliens: Colonial Marines for Wii U is scheduled to launch by the end of the month, but Gearbox Software is not sure if the game will make it or not.

"We'll see," CEO Randy Pitchford told GameSpot today.

"That's not our call. I think [developer Demiurge Studios] did amazing work. I think it's really cool, but Sega's got to figure that out," he added. "We're doing the best we can."

Gearbox did not have a direct hand in developing Aliens: Colonial Marines for Wii U, but Pitchford reportedly sees the game "regularly."

Sega and Demiurge have two times declined to comment on the status of Aliens: Colonial Marines for Wii U. Sega told GameSpot today, "No news."

The Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC versions of the game were met by a cold critical reception at launch in February, though it was the month's sixth-best-selling title in the United States during that month, according to NPD data.

"We're doing the best we can."

Doesn't seem like it...

*watches as it vanishes from sight, only to reappear 6 months later as 'Aliens: Colonial Marines Directors Cut'. All issues will be addressed and remedied*

That's like saying "can you kick me in the nuts?" Response "we'll see".

Take another 6 months on it, fix it, release it. Waste of money/effort to just dismiss it
