Pitchford to dodge all Aliens: Colonial Marines questions

So, last night Randy Pitchford and I got to talking in the wake of his denial that Aliens: Colonial Marines was confirmed for a post-2011 release. This time I did my job properly and went straight to the mouth of the horse, where I received ... very little information. 

Still, you can't blame a guy for trying. Randy did confirm that the game's still on, and that everybody involved is excited about it. He also confirmed he will dodge any and all questions about a release date until further notice.

"Aliens is a very important project for us -- something I am incredibly passionate about and that my studio and I are very committed to," says Randy. "In the EGM interview, I basically dodged the question about launch dates because we're not quite ready to talk about Aliens yet.

"But, SEGA has been super proactive and I can tell they are very excited about the game and I can imagine it won't be long before the communication will restart and I will be turned loose to talk about it," he continues. "Until then, I would not be the correct source to talk about the release date.

"I know where we are and what I imagine will unfold, but we have partners in SEGA and Fox who respectively are focused on games publishing and are responsible for the brand and they are the guys who should speak about such things. Until then, I will continue to dodge questions about the ship date just like I did with EGM."

Journalism done ... but we're still no closer to any Colonial Marines info. Looks like whoever wins, we lose.
