Could the UK studio behind the excellent Total War games be making a title based on the Alien franchise?
It certainly sounds like it, according to the Government Minister for Communication, Culture and the Creative Industries, Ed Vaizey.
The MP is attending a Creative Assembly presentation this morning at its Horsham, Sussex studio. An announcement is expected at 2pm, but Vaizey appears to have let the cat out fo the bag a little early. Naughty scamp.
Vaizey wrote on Twitter this morning: "Great visit to Creative Assembly one of UK's best developers. Now hiring for new blockbuster based on Alien"
Our man's there now, waiting patiently for more information. As soon as we know, you'll know.
