A handful of recent delays have pushed major titles into 2013, and now Aliens: Colonial Marines is joining the likes of Bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider. Developed by Gearbox Software (Borderlands), Colonial Marines' new release date is set for February 12, 2013.
The original plan for Colonial Marines had it launching sometime in fall of this year for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, with a Wii U version timed to launch with Nintendo's new console. While the February date applies to all those existing platforms, the timing of the Wii U version's release will be revealed at a later time.
While we patiently wait for the shooter to arrive, Sega hopes to entertain us with a chilling new "suspense" trailer. Man, I can never get enough of those classic Aliens sound effects!
