Well, this is the end of the long, bumpy road for what was to be Aliens: Colonial Marines for the Wii U. After releasing on time in February for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC the game has gone on to be one of the worst-reviewed games of this year and it’s only April. Speaking to Joystiq, a representative of Sega has confirmed the title is no longer in development.
“Sega can confirm that the Wii U SKU of Aliens: Colonial Marines is no longer in development.”
It’s not as though Wii U owners are missing much, but it still feels as though both Gearbox Software and Sega managed to lie through their teeth throughout the launch period of the Wii U, as several times it was reiterated that the Wii U version of the game would be the best one. I guess technically it is, since it’ll never be released and that’s probably just fine.
