Obsidian confirmed as Alien RPG dev

PC and next-gen console feeling the Alien role-playing bite thanks to KOTOR II and Neverwinter Nights 2 developer

Sega has confirmed our report from earlier this week that Obsidian Entertainment is creating an RPG based on the Alien franchise.

"The role playing game", explains Sega, "will build upon the distinctive look and feel of the original films while utilising next-generation technology to create an entirely different and unique Alien experience."

We've no further details at this time, but obviously we'll bring you more as soon as we get it. And presumably with Obsidian confirmed as the developer of the Alien RPG, the previous report that Gearbox will be handling the announced Alien FPS is on the money - but we're still awaiting word on that.
