New MMO Shooter Based on the 'Alien' IP is in Development at Cold Iron Studios
It appears that FoxNext Games and Cold Iron Studios are working on a massive multiplayer online shooter based on the Alien series of games and movies. "FoxNext Games’ studio, Cold Iron Studios, is also currently at work on a massively multiplayer online shooter set in the Alien cinematic universe for consoles and PC."
A quick look at available jobs at Cold Iron reveals that the company is looking to fill several positions with candidates having experience in large online shooters.
The news came as a part of a larger announcement of the Alien: Blackout mobile game that features Ellen Ripley's daughter, Amanda.
This year, fans of the critically-acclaimed Alien: Isolation video game are invited to embark on new adventures with Ellen Ripley's daughter, Amanda, by watching, playing, and reading her story as she renews her fight against the aliens after the events of Isolation.
20th Century Fox will partner with a wide range of storytellers and innovators to bring this epic chapter in the Alien Universe to life, with even more entries in Amanda Ripley's story soon to be announced.
As early as January 2018, we knew that Cold Iron was working on an Alien shooter. What we didn't know was that it would be an MMO!
