SEGA puts the final nail in the coffin of Obsidian's Aliens RPG after a long period of uncertainty for the project...

Even though Obsidian announced last month that it had ceased development on SEGA's Aliens RPG, there was still a slither of hope for the title. Without official word from SEGA, there was no way of knowing whether the publisher had moved the project on to another developer.

However, SEGA has now released official word on the game and, regrettably, it's not going to please Aliens fans:

"At this point, SEGA has no plans to move forward with the Aliens RPG," a SEGA spokesperson told TVG. "The Aliens franchise offers us so much content to choose from that we feel it important to take a step back and carefully consider the type of game we want to release. We plan to continue working with the Aliens franchise and ask fans to be patient and stay tuned for more information about what SEGA has coming out for the Aliens series of games, starting with the upcoming Alien vs. Predator game.  We are very excited about and focused on Alien vs. Predator, which promises gamers a fantastic single player game and an equally compelling multiplayer experience. We are confident that it provides all the excitement and fun that the Aliens and Predator fans are looking for."

As well as Rebellion's Aliens vs. Predator game, Gearbox is still hard at work on Aliens: Colonial Marines for SEGA according to the publisher's latest update on the series, so it looks like there are still a couple of facehuggers on the way at least.

I think you may be getting confused with Aliens: Colonial Marines.  When SEGA announced the Aliens license they confirmed two games:

An FPS from Gearbox named Aliens: Colonial Marines and an Aliens RPG from Obsidian Entertainment.

It's all gone very murky on both titles and in the meantime SEGA announced Aliens vs Predator with Rebellion, which will be coming out early next year.

We have no reason to doubt Gearbox's title will appear at some point - although at this precise time the only one that is certain is the AvP game from Rebellion.

I'm very disappointed in SEGa cacelling this game when it was going to be finished and released around Feburary of next year. They were doing so good with it, I was really looking forward to buy it and they threw it away as if they knew it was a failure. I don't know why they were calling it a RPG, cause it was in First person view from what I've seen.

I'm glad they cancelled the RPG - an RPG could never really work for Aliens.

Are you kidding me? I still play the first AVP game, it is the greatest rendition of all the aliens games combimed... except maybe the side scrolling avp game in an arcade machine.... Xbox360 version of the original AVP would be one of the best things ever to happen.

This will be awsome if they don't screw up the original horror theme of the films

I remember the old PC game, Alien vs Predator where you could play as either an Alien, Predator or Marine. Great game in its day. Would be great to see that updated for the 360!
