The ongoing saga of Aliens: Colonial Marines had mostly gone dormant in the last month or so, following weeks of post-release grousing about its miserable quality and the ludicrous development history that got it there. However, there was one last, dangling little detail left uncertain. Specifically, the Wii U version, which was reportedly still in development at TimeGate Studios. It was supposed to come out prior to the end of March, but then it just kind of didn't. Now we know why.
According to Kotaku, Sega has confirmed that development on the Wii U version has ceased altogether. This follows the game's removal from listings on several European retailers' websites.
It's a lame, but perhaps fitting final note for a game that seemed to disappoint pretty much everyone. At one time, Gearbox was touting the Wii U version as the best looking of the bunch. Now, we're essentially being told that staring into the cold, empty void of nothingness is a preferable outcome to that of playing more Aliens: Colonial Marines. Yeah, I'd say that sounds about right.
