The internet was abuzz yesterday with reports Gearbox's Aliens: Colonial Marines would see another delay since its 2006 reveal, and would be pushed back to 2012 (as was reported by Destructoid, based on a forum post over at NeoGAF pulled from an article in EGM - complicated, I know).

Eurogamer today, however, reports they contacted Randy Pitchford to substantiate this report to which he responded "I haven't seen the issue of Edge [sic] that the NeoGAF story is referencing or what was printed, but I am certain that I haven't discussed anything specific regarding Aliens: Colonial Marines with anyone beyond emphasising how passionate I am about the title and how committed my studio and I are to making it great".

"It looks to me like whomever made that post on NeoGAF made an interpretation that could be misleading or inaccurate," he added.

The reports also cite Borderlands 2 as being one of the reasons for an Aliens: Colonial Marines delay, but Pitchford is quick to point out they haven't even announced any such thing yet.

"I respect Jim [Sterling, Destructoid journalist] and his audience and I'm a little surprised he didn't bother to try to e-mail myself or our folks before extrapolating that NeoGAF post even further," Pitchford said to Eurogamer. "Jim even referenced Borderlands 2? What's Borderlands 2? Bah! And El Oh El!"

So nothing concrete on a "this year", but a denial of the story in general speaks volumes. Apparently we should be hearing more about the game early this year from SEGA anyway, so stay tuned.
