SEGA earlier boasted that Colonial Marines would be the “best looking console version,” but that promise didn’t seem strong enough to keep the port in production.
Speaking to Videogamer, SEGA said that they “can confirm that the Wii U sku of Aliens: Colonial Marines is no longer in development.”
Meanwhile on PC, Aliens: Colonial Marines has had several major updates, including one improving the visuals of the title substantially, with a lot of AI fixes and improvements in Xenomorph animation. Gearbox have earnestly tried to improve the product.
In many people’s eyes, the project is a total write off, but it’s unclear as to whether disappointing Wii U growth is the reason behind SEGA’s cancellation, or whether Nintendo, or Demiurge, even wanted the product to face a second round of press battering.
