Alien Isolation 2 Is Not In Development

Recently Alien: Blackout was announced by FoxNext announced for iOS and Android, this announcement came with a confirmation from FoxNext about the development of a new MMO shooter which is untitled for the moment.

While the announcement hinted that something else might be on the way expectation about a Alien Isolation 2 is dismissed as FoxNext’s vice president of external development  TQ Jefferson has spoken with Variety confirmed that Alien Isolation 2 is not in development.

The official Alien Twitter account started using the “ReadWatchPlay” hashtag earlier this month as it stoked interested in the coming announcement of the “Alien: Blackout” game. Unfortunately, the buzz the hashtag generated may have been a bit too effective, leading some fans to believe that it was building up to news of a new “Alien: Isolation” game, a survival horror title released in 2014 which starred Amanda Ripley, daughter of Alien protagonist Ellen Ripley.

When news hit that the game wasn’t an “Isolation” sequel and was destined for smartphones, some fans took to Twitter to express their displeasure.

Jefferson said on Wednesday that the company was aware of the backlash Blizzard recently received after it announced a Diablo mobile game when fans were hoping for a console or computer title. But he said he doesn’t think it’s the same.

“I can see some people making a connection between ‘Diablo’ and this, but I think it’s a bit of a leap,” he said. “The ‘Diablo’ backlash was focused on free-to-play and mobile, our game is a premium mobile game where you pay one price and you’re done. It’s a contained experience.”

FoxNext big game surely will be Alien MMO which is in development, it seems like publishers will have to be more careful when teasing players to later announce a mobile game specially after the BlizzCon 2018 disaster.

Alien: Blackout is a unique fear-inducing horror premium mobile game experience that will test the inner nerves of both Alien and horror fans alike, where life can end in an instant.
