The canned Aliens RPG was actually ready to ship when it got the chop according to boss Feargus Urquhart.
"If you had come in and played any of the last builds we were working on, you would have said it was a finished game," Urquart told Joystiq. "It looked and felt like it was ready to ship."
Urquhart also commented on some of the details players could have expected if the game had made it to the shelves.
Apparently the RPG was based around the Colonial Marines only who were given tasks such as protecting robot sentry guns.
There would have been multiple types of Marine, loads of gear to mess around with and combat would have been turn based.
The Aliens RPG was officially canned in June last year.
