SEGA and Gearbox Software have let loose on their long-awaited Aliens: Colonial Marines. This morning, SEGA sent word that the game was being set for a Spring of 2012 release. The game is being developed for the Windows PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 platforms and will be on-display at SEGA’s E3 booth next week. We will be bringing you a preview of the game at that time so stay-tuned.

“To Gearbox Software and its peers throughout the industry, ALIENS is one of the most influential science fiction properties of all time,” said Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software. “Aliens: Colonial Marines, designed as an interactive successor to the landmark films from Twentieth Century Fox, is a dream project about which our studio is deeply committed and passionate.”

“Aliens: Colonial Marines will be THE definitive ALIENS gaming experience,” said Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing at SEGA Europe and SEGA of America. “Gearbox Software are doing a brilliant job translating the thrill and horror that ALIENS stands for into an action-packed shooter experience with co-operative gameplay at its core.”
