THE BUZZ: Aliens: Colonial Marines has officially been delayed according to developer Gearbox.

After an updated release date appeared on the website, the developer has confirmed that the game will not be shipping until Fall 2012.

“Aliens: Colonial Marines is a process of creativity and invention and those don’t necessarily follow the structure of an assembly line,” a Gearbox rep told CVG. “While setting clear goals, deadlines and predictions is helpful, they are often subjective. We don’t want to sacrifice the creative process just for the sake of following a blue print. We prefer to have the creative discovery shape that blue print because our goal is to make a great game, and we are prioritizing this goal over the previously targeted date.”

EGM’s TAKE: This is going to be a bitter pill for fans of the game to swallow. Colonial marines has garnered a lot of attention over the last few months and many were looking forward to playing this Spring, when the came was originally slated for. However, this isn’t going to happen now due to Gearbox wanting to take the time to craft a fantastic game rather than meet deadlines. Hopefully the game won’t suffer anymore set backs and we will see a release in fall. Expect an official release date to be announced sometime around E3, as long as development is on schedule.
