Sega to Develop Next-Gen Alien Titles

Sega and 20th Century Fox have announced an agreement which allows the Japanese developers to release a number of titles based on the Alien series of movies. Although the games aren’t expected to follow any of the four Alien movies, the games will take inspiration from the history behind the movies.

Rob Lightner, VP of Sega’s business development, told Hollywood Reporter:
We haven’t finalized anything at this point, but everything is on the table. It’s important for everyone to understand the difference here: We’re taking licensing to the next level with this franchise.”

Senior producer Mike Gallo said:
We’ll go out of our way to tie the games into the films in unique ways. We’re also looking at all ’Alien’ source material for inspiration, in addition to the films. We may incorporate some characters that fans know and love, and we may let gamers find answers to questions that were left unanswered in the movies.”

The first Sega Alien title is expected in 2008.
