Further video games being planned based on the Aliens universe.

Sega and 20th Century Fox Licensing & Merchandising have revealed new details of the growing portfolio of video games based on the Aliens universe.

Sega will be publishing an all-new Aliens vs Predator (working title) game in early 2010. The title is currently in development with Rebellion, which created the original 1999 Aliens vs Predator game.

Sega has now strategically updated the release of the other upcoming Aliens titles currently in development within its portfolio.

"The innovative AvP game presents an exciting opportunity for us," commented Naoya Tsurumi, CEO of Sega West. "It represents a fantastic addition to our growing Aliens franchise and the reinvention of one of gaming's most cherished iconic titles. By adjusting the release of our other Aliens titles to accommodate it, Sega will ensure that every title lives up to the high expectations of Aliens and AvP fans."

Gary Rosenfeld, senior VP of new media at Fox L&M, added: "Sega continues to create masterful games based on our Aliens franchise and this new addition is sure to continue their successful track record."
