RUMOR - Aliens: Colonial Marines postponed on Wii U?

This nugget of information comes from Jason Schreier of Kotaku...

We heard from a tipster about a month ago that the Wii U version had been "postponed indefinitely." We reached out to Sega, and they denied it. I'll let you guys fill in the blanks there. :)

They said no, so "fill in the blanks" comment doesn't work that well here. Maybe if they said "No comment" then yeah.
I think it's cancelled, the game was delayed and poorly received, it might have sold well if it came out on time and received decent reviews but with all this stuff going on I doubt it would sell.

That's one less crappy game publishers can quote sales from when they explain why they won't support the platform.

Was excited for the game but now I'm not! I wonder if @Keyz is in a frenzy on how "people shouldn't hate on this game" :lol:

Judging from the extremely cold reception the game is currently receiving, I think Sega just wants it to disappear off the face of the Earth.

well I guess that means this game will be canceled if the sales are extremely poor

I have a feeling the sales will be good because there is a very STRONG Alien fan base that will buy the game regardless of the reviews. What would be cool if the Wii U version was completely different but that will never happen since this is SEGA were talking about here.

I've never seen this many issues with games this generation. Makes me wonder just how bad games are going to be...IN THE FUTURE!

At least we have Aliens Infestation on the DS. Seems it turned out to be the better game.

This game has to be the biggest mess I've seen in a long time...

Long dev cycle
Repeated delays
Denying, and confusing who developed the game
Tech demo trailers that don't match the end product at all

I was really hoping that Sega had the sense to just kill this thing off. Hopefully everyone will forget that Colonial Marines ever happened, and we can all go back to thinking that Gearbox isn't a subpar developer again.

Oh well. It sounds like an incomplete game was rushed out [like one infamous Sonic 06].

It probably would've sold better had it come out around the time of the Aliens film last year, tbh.

A shame such a good franchise has yet to receive its justice in game form, i blame gearbox for outsourcing this and laying the blame on the developer they outsourced to. If your pressed for time between projects dont take on so many projects! If your obligated to make a game follow through, dont hand it off to another dev and leave them with the mess, its such a sad mess at this point.

Aliens Infestation is a WHOLE different game and many many times better than what we are seen from Aliens Colinial Marines. Too bad it was so short ...

Suddenly that Space Hulk game is looking 10x better. As long as they just stick to the rules...

What Alien film? The last true film in the saga was Resurrection, and the last AvP came out in 2007.

Probably for the best. I was so hyped for this game, then it was released...

Prometheus is what I'm guessing.

How sad. This used to be touted as one of those games Wii U would get "the best version" of. Now it sounds like it might not come out at all. Not that it matters, since it turned out to be a big steaming pile. Once again, another Nintendo system with terrible 3rd party support. I'm not surprised this time..... just sad.

Maybe they will pull a Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge and overhaul it for Wii U.

ps360 versions should be delayed in order to let every gamers play the game at the same time: Ubisoft! :lol:

so u want the garbage on the system to say it has support?You want people to waste their money for the sake of support?Wii had tons of shovelware, that counts as support from third party then?seriously this game will probably be on wii u and thats NOT support we need.
