Who's excited for this game? It's a shame that it'll be released after every other version of this wonderful game. Graphics look beautiful, Amazing Alien AI, and a compelling story all shown off in recent trailers, Hype Train Time!

Where am I going! Nowhere, unless if I say otherwise!

Huh?

I never drive faster than I can see. Besides, it's all in the reflexes.

Any reason to keep this one open?

@Octane I don't think so? I googled this game (because I'd never heard of it) and apparently SEGA cancelled the Wii U version.

Keep the faith, I'm expecting it be released and a patch to fix how rubbish the other versions were!!!

@Octane I'm not sure if trolling or legit hype FAIL, but this thread needs to be stickied at the top. I mean it's beautiful. It's art given form.

I have a feeling @AlohaPizzaJack may sort of kind of accidentally on purpose be responsible for this.

...What...I can't even fathom what may have happened here.
@NEStalgia It's gotta be, there's no other explanation. I mentioned the name and put that out there in the universe. Like a friggin Babadook.

Well lets just wait until E3 is over just in case it does get announced.

Nintendo still has a trailer for this game up on on their YouTube channel.

[UPDATE] Following the publication of this story, a representative for Demiurge Studios provided a statement saying it is "business-as-usual" at the company following the cancellation of Aliens: Colonial Marines for Wii U. The statement comes from Demiurge CEO and cofounder Albert Reed.

"We were very sorry to hear about the cancellation of Aliens for Wii U. It's business-as-usual here at Demiurge Studios. We are focused on making Shoot Many Robots for mobile kick ass and we've got another unannounced game in the works that we can't wait to unveil!"

The original story follows below

The Wii U version of Aliens: Colonial Marines--said to be the best-looking version of all--has been canceled. It was originally expected to launch by the end of March.

No Caption Provided
"Sega can confirm that the Wii U sku of Aliens: Colonial Marines is no longer in development," Sega told GameSpot today.

No rationale for the cancellation was provided, though the game's fate had long been in question.

It is not clear when exactly Aliens: Colonial Marines for Wii U was canceled or if the move will result in layoffs at Cambridge, Mass. developer Demiurge Studios. A representative from the studio was not immediately available to comment.

Prior to today, Sega had three times refused to provide a status update on the project following the critically panned launch of the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC version in February.

Gearbox Software CEO Randy Pitchford said last month that he was unsure if Aliens: Colonial Marines for Wii U will ship at all. "We'll see," Pitchford said at the time.

"That's not our call. I think [developer Demiurge Studios] did amazing work," he went on. "I think it's really cool, but Sega's got to figure that out. We're doing the best we can."

Is this the game where a single typo in a line of code completely killed the enemy AI and the dev just released it like that?

Yeah I don’t know either.

Eh! My gameplay videos

That lying sack of sh** SOB Pitchford...
Still makes me angry, reading these kind of claims. Even the Xbox 360/PS3 version didn't look nearly as good as the E3 footage shown back then. Sadly enough, it was that exact footage that sold me on the game, but that never came to fruition on any platform. And indeed, then there was also the lousy AI...

The Wii U version could have been superior gameplay wise, at least were immersion is concerned, because the plan was always to use the GamePad as a real time alien scanner, but from the outset any and all communication concerning the Wii U version has always been decidedly shady/ambiguous.
