Alien: Blackout will likely be announced at the Game Awards
In cryptic tweets about the awards program, Keighley posted images with the words “WORLDS WILL CHANGE” in a blue-on-black typeface that looks an awful lot like fonts used in the films Alien and Aliens. Keighley wrote that “worlds will change” December 6, the date of the Game Awards broadcast.
That’s not a lot to go on by itself, but fortunately for Alien fans, there’s more: a new trademark for a game called Alien: Blackout was filed this week by 20th Century Fox, as Dark Side of Gaming reports. The trademark covers computer game discs and software, as well as “providing on-line computer games… by means of the internet.”
We’ve known a new Alien game is in development for a while – earlier this year, we learned that FoxNext Games had purchased Cold Iron Studios to work on the game, which is rumored to feature a persistent online world.
