SEGA's Aliens vs Predator has come and gone, but it had been a while since we'd heard anything about their other Aliens franchise first person shooter, Aliens: Colonial Marines, still in the works at Gearbox Software [Borderlands, Duke Nukem Forever]. Today, SEGA fired out a new press release assuring us that the game is still alive -- now aiming for an Autumn 2012 release (U.S. Spring) on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 -- and will be on show at next week's E3 expo.
Aliens: Colonial Marines begins with an ostensibly abandoned ship, the U.S.S. Sulaco, recovered in orbit around LV-426. Players lead a group of highly trained United States Colonial Marines as they board the deserted craft to uncover the fate of the crew. They will have to fight to survive unspeakable horrors and their own anxieties as they chase down the truth behind a galaxy-spanning deception that places humanity at the mercy of the most murderous and deadly species in the universe. Aliens: Colonial Marines features authentic environments, such as the surface of LV-426 and Hadley’s Hope, weapons inspired by the film series and is designed to provide an exhilarating and engaging new chapter in the Aliens universe.
We also have one new piece of artwork and a rather underwhelming teaser trailer.

Lets not hope it's as bad as Aliens vs Predators.

I wonder how they managed the IPv4 address exhaustion problem?
