Aliens: Colonial Marines Announced Too Soon
Speaking to NowGamer at a Duke Nukem event earlier this week, Pitchford talked about team logistics at Gewarbox after taking on the project of completing Duke Nukem. "Gearbox has over 200 people and we also, at any given moment, have another 100 or 200 people outside of the studio who work with us."
"Duke Nukem Forever is consuming about 70 staff, so there’s still a huge amount of push power behind our other projects," said Pitchford. "We’re very, very committed to Aliens: Colonial Marines and we’re very excited about that project."
In it's excitement Sega jumped the gun a little with the announcment of Aliens: Colonial Marines, said Pitchford. "I know it’s been ‘radio silent’ for long and we know that must be frustrating for some people, but the game was announced too soon."
"There was so much excitement and I know a lot has changed at Sega, but they were very excited, they did the deal with Fox and before the ink was even dry they issued a press release announcing it."
"At the time we hadn’t written a single line of code yet. It takes time to build games, but it’s going great and I’m very excited about it. It won’t be long before we break radio silence and we’re able to show it."
