Default Obsidian's Aliens RPG Officially Nuked from Orbit

Developer Obsidian and publisher Sega have officially confirmed that the Aliens RPG project has been canceled.

In a post on the company's official forums, noticed by Giant Bomb, Obsidian said that it was "no longer working on the game," adding that Aliens RPG is "no longer a product that is in development."

Publisher Sega--which had claimed the project was still in development as of June 15--has issued a brief statement, confirming that the project is altogether canceled.

"At this point, Sega has no plans to move forward with the Aliens RPG," said a Sega representative. "We plan to continue working with the Aliens franchise and ask fans to be patient and stay tuned for more information about what SEGA has coming out for the Aliens series of games, starting with the upcoming Alien vs. Predator game."

Rebellion's shooter sequel Aliens vs. Predator (PC, 360, PS3) is scheduled for release in early 2010. Gearbox's co-op shooter Aliens: Colonial Marines, also published by Sega, is still in development.
It's never good when an 'Aliens' game is cancelled.

Better news on the other 2 though.

An RPG in that world was a neat idea, but in the end something more original would be better.

They better not cancel the Alien shooters though, dammit.
