Gearbox Software have been thinking up ideas for what they could do with a sequel to Aliens: Colonial Marines. Brian Burleson, Senior producer at Gearbox Software said that they are “imagining things” for another entry to the series.

Burleson said:

“We’re imagining things – there’s a distinct possibility. We are making the game in such a way that could support certain possibilities, but nothing is certain so we have to leave lots of ground.

“I think when people finish playing the game, they’ll definitely want more. We’re not just tagging off the end of the game and saying, ‘That’s the end of the Aliens chronology for this sort of thing’. We want to continue it…”

Although it’ s probably a little bit early to get excited for a sequel right now, with the original still coming up for release to look forward to. However that isn’t going to happen until next year, and how the game is sells will be a large factor as to whether or not a sequel is commissioned.
