Online shooter set in the Alien universe is coming

It's a long way off, though...

A new Alien online shooter is on the way from Twentieth Century Fox and Cold Iron Studios.

FoxNext Games, the gaming division of Twentieth Century Fox, recently acquired Cold Iron to work on the title. Cold Iron Studios was established in 2015 and includes developers who’ve worked on the likes of Metroid Prime 3, Bioshock Infinite and Neverwinter.

“Cold Iron Studios has amazing design, craftsmanship, and development talent that we are excited to welcome at FoxNext Games as we pursue our goal to build a multi-platform, multi-genre portfolio of great games,” FoxNext Games’ President Aaron Loeb said (via DualShockers).

“I am a personal fan of Cold Iron’s previous work and all of us at FoxNext Games are thrilled to be working with them as they create an action-packed persistent world, steeped in the mysteries of this beloved Alien universe.”

“We believe in FoxNext’s vision and we are thrilled about the opportunity to explore an amazing and rich universe,” added Cold Iron’s Craig Zinkievich. “Our background in building online worlds and taking established franchises to the next level in interactive entertainment is a precise fit with our product roadmap ahead; we can’t wait to share more information soon.”
