Former Gearbox dev says Aliens: Colonial Marines development was a trainwreck, primary dev done by TimeGate

Coming from superannuation...

Ex-Gearbox dev in May 2012: "I am expecting [Colonial Marines] to be average at best." Also said "development of that game has been a total train wreck," and Gearbox only was handling multiplayer, with TimeGate as primary dev.

Here's the full statement from that ex-Gearbox dev...

Hate to say it, but I wouldn't get your hopes up too high for Colonial Marines. I used to work at Gearbox, and the development of that game has been a total train wreck, going on what, 6 years now? Gearbox isn't even making the game, except for the multiplayer. Primary development was outsourced to TimeGate Studios, which has a less than stellar past. I hope it proves me wrong, as I still have alot of friends still working at Gearbox, but I am expecting it to be average at best.

Seeing the early review scores for the title certainly makes it seem like there's some big trouble with the game. Maybe I won't be holding out for that Wii U version.
