Working on Alien FPS "a dream come true"

Randy Pitchford tells us how good the game will be

Gearbox Software regards working on the Alien first-person shooter for Sega as "a dream come true", says the developer's president Randy Pitchford.

Although currently sworn to secrecy, Pitchford described the game as "amazing" and told us that "it's going great" when we asked him what was happening with the title during an interview this morning. Though he's hardly going to say otherwise is he?. For fear of a fanboy backlash as much as anything else.

"I know a lot of people are interested in hearing us talk about that", he added on the game. Yep, we'd count ourselves amongst that group.

In fact, we'd cut our Quake III Arena trigger fingers off to get a glimpse of it right now.

Alien, of course, is no stranger to videogames but it's been a real mixed bag of xenomorph blasting to date. Big guns, big aliens, big horror, big gore, all reproduced with today's technology. What could possibly go wrong?

Gearbox's Alien FPS is expected on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 - but not until 2009.
