Yesterday, Obsidian Entertainment game designer Josh Sawyer shared with us details about the canceled Aliens project, which the team had begun working on in collaboration with Sega in 2006 before the game was canceled in 2009. The team was short of directors at the time, and all employees had the same level of authority. So it was slow work with not being able to agree on anything.
The team was working on Alpha Protocol at that time, and given the progress of the Aliens project, Sega decided to cancel the project in exchange for focusing on Alpha Protocol. Sawyer indicated that the game Aliens: Fireteam Elite.
