More Alien games are in the works, Fox has said as it battles a backlash sparked by the announcement of a new mobile game based on the franchise.
This week, FoxNext Games, the part of Fox that’s hoping to make a splash in the world of video games, announced Alien: Blackout, a mobile game starring Amanda Ripley.
Blackout faced a negative reaction from many Alien fans who had hoped for a big budget, triple-A Alien video game reveal. It didn’t help that Fox had teased the announcement of a new game starring Amanda Ripley, who was the protagonist of Creative Assembly’s much-loved stealth game Alien Isolation. This led some to suspect the announcement of Alien Isolation 2 – despite that being very unlikely indeed, at least from Creative Assembly.
