Creative Assembly May Be Working on Alien: Isolation 2

Official PlayStation Magazine has a source claiming that Creative Assembly is readying up a new Alien title, which would likely mean a sequel or derivative to Alien: Isolation. This was one of those rare movie-based games that was not only fun to play but faithful to the film universe, so I am really looking forward to what the team cooks up for the follow-up. Wouldn’t it be cool if there was a VR mode? (I also wonder if the flamethrower will still be as effective.)

Released back at the tail end of 2014, Alien: Isolation was met with critical praise and did commendably well in sales (over 2.1 million units across the U.S. and Europe as of March 2015) آ– though publisher Sega wasn't completely satisfied with its commercial performance. That said, the idea of a sequel has been bandied about the past year-and-a-half with CA studio director Tim Heaton stating that a sequel was ''not out of the question'' and that ''there was more to be said.'' Sega has also expressed an interest but said that it's entirely dependent on its profitability.
