Aliens: Colonial Marines recently has been removed from both Steam and delisted from Valve’s PC platform. It’s no wonder Aliens: Colonial Marines got pulled after being panned ruthlessly by critics and being slapped by class-action lawsuits for false advertising of the game at trade shows.
The First person shooter Gearbox-dev game can still be played by gamers, but it will no longer be available in the Steam store. Also missing from action is the Rebellion game Aliens Vs. Predator , also an FPS that wasn’t so greatly loved by fans either back in 2010.
Is it the license agreement between Sega and 20th Century Fox has expired? Maybe, but it’s possible a full on FPS bereft without its horror element like the successful Aliens: Isolation is possible not the best way to go when making a game for the Alien franchise. At the end of the day, the tit-for-tat dispute between Gearbox and Sega in the courtroom did not do much to help matters tossing around the blame potato for the class action lawsuit.
