Rumor: Gearbox spent Aliens: Colonial Marines development money on Borderlands
According to a rumored SEGA employee, Gearbox (who is famous for Borderlands) spent some of Aliens: Colonial Marines money on their last Borderlands game
“Gearbox didnt care about the game, they spent the money from acm on the borderlands games. Look at the release of borderlands and when aliens was anounced, they had the other companies like timegate do the work. When they got the game back timegate had done a terrible job. When it came into sega it was shit basicaly. Gearbox only cared about fixing ‘progression blockers’ (things that stop a player from getting through a level) or crashes” – SEGA employee
I am not sure how many of you know this but the Wii U version of Aliens: Colonial Marines was not developed by GearBox but Demiurge Studios. We have tried over the months to have an interview with the developers but to no avail, thanks to SEGA saying not yet. I can tell you that the Demiurge staff seems very excited for their version of Aliens: Colonial Marines, which is more than we can say for Gearbox. We should still have hope for the Wii U version of this game.
