Aliens: Colonial Marines delayed to 2013

Gearbox's FPS gets a new trailer, but won't launch until next February

The launch of Aliens: Colonial Marines has slipped to 2013, with the game now set for a worldwide release on February 12.


That's on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, with publisher Sega saying a release date for the Wii U version "will be revealed at a later time".

In January the game's release was delayed from this spring to a tentative autumn 2012 launch window, but we'll now have to wait until next year for the long-in-development FPS.

Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford said: "I am thrilled to announce the definitive launch date for Aliens: Colonial Marines. Aliens: Colonial Marines is the culmination of a life-time of inspiration from the films and relentless passion and drive from the exceptionally talented development team behind the scenes."

Gary Knight, senior VP of marketing for Sega Europe and America, added: "We knew this game would be incredible from the moment Gearbox began developing Aliens: Colonial Marines. Now that the title is in its final stretch of development, we can confidently release the exact date that gamers will finally get to experience this blockbuster thrill-ride."

Sega also released the following trailer to coincide with the release date announcement:
