Who needs new IP in this time of economic uncertainty, fear and doubt? Not SEGA nor Rebellion. Nor many gamers either if the new Aliens vs Predator
from the former and developed by the latter is as good as the first one
Despite financial worries, SEGA is pumping development cash into the 20th Century Fox title with a view to delivering the game - on what platform(s) it hasn't made clear - some time early in 2010.
In its release, SEGA points out that the new game comes from Rebellion, and the "original 1999 Aliens versus Predator
(was) a legendary title that went on to define an entire generation of multiplayer gaming."
So, we guess this is the shoot-em-up (with the multiplayer) that came out on PC, rather than the game that came out on such platforms as Atari's much-missed Lynx; nor does it refer to the 1993 version that appeared on the SNES - check those screens out here
