Gearbox Software have confirmed rumours surrounding the fate of the hotly anticipated Aliens: Colonial Marines, announcing that the game will slip from its intended end-of-year release window.
"We're now at a point in development when we can see the end", stated Randy Pitchford, CEO of Gearbox. "We know what's left to do and can sufficiently quantify it to be very confident in the schedule for the game's completion and commercial release."
The new release date for the Aliens-themed first person shooter is February 12, 2013.
"We knew this game would be incredible from the moment Gearbox began developing Aliens: Colonial Marines," added SEGA's Gary Knight. "Now that the title is in its final stretch of development, we can confidently release the exact date that gamers will finally get to experience this blockbuster thrill-ride."
