FoxNet is Working on an Alien MMO Shooter

Following the release of Alien: Isolation in 2014, fans have been hungry for another big game set in the Aliens universe. So, I bet you can image the fanbase's reaction when they learned the highly anticipated Alien: Blackout is actually a mobile game today. Fortunately, several media outlets received a email from Fox claiming that Cold Iron Studios, FoxNext Games' studio, is working on a "massively multiplayer online shooter set in the Alien cinematic universe for consoles and PC." TweakTown posted the full email, which you can see below, and they suggest that the upcoming game could have a PvE focus. Tie ins with other forms of media, like movies, comics, and even the mobile game are likely too, but confirmed details about the game are scarce now. Given their Twitter activity and posts on other social media, it looks like Cold Iron Studios have been churning away on this MMO for some time. Thanks to dgz for the tip.

"This year, fans of the critically-acclaimed Alien: Isolation video game are invited to embark on new adventures with Ellen Ripley's daughter, Amanda, by watching, playing, and reading her story as she renews her fight against the aliens after the events of Isolation. "20th Century Fox will partner with a wide range of storytellers and innovators to bring this epic chapter in the Alien Universe to life, with even more entries in Amanda Ripley's story soon to be announced. "FoxNext Games' studio, Cold Iron Studios, is also currently at work on a massively multiplayer online shooter set in the Alien cinematic universe for consoles and PC."
