Aliens: Colonial Marines for Wii U cancelled

Sega confirms Nintendo version is 'no longer in development'

Sega has confirmed to CVG that the Wii U version of Aliens: Colonial Marines has been canned.


"SEGA can confirm that the Wii U sku of Aliens: Colonial Marines is no longer in development," said a rep today.

The Wii U version of Aliens: Colonial Marines had quietly missed its March release window, which rang alarm bells when both Sega and the developer in charge of the port, Demiurge Studios, had declined to comment on the status of the game.

The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions released in February to generally negative reviews. We called it "a shooting gallery that fundamentally fails to understand what makes the Alien films so great," in our Aliens: Colonial Marines review, scoring it 6.2/10.
