The official Alien: Covenant film novelization will be written by veteran sci-fi author Alan Dean Foster! On September 1st, 2016 Mr. Foster shared an update to his own official website, indicating that one of his next projects will be tackling the unique and original material for Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant. Previously, Foster had penned novelizations for a number of top-tier sci-fi films including Alien, Aliens, Alien 3, The Chronicles of Riddick, The Thing as well as a plethora of Star Trek adaptations! Below are his words, confirming his involvement with Alien: Covenant.

I'm currently writing the novelization, plus some unique original material, for ALIEN:COVENANT. An unusual approach that's never been tried before in a novelization. Look for it, along with the film, next year.

You can browse a full selection of Foster's previous novels and other works on his official website here. The above quote was grabbed from his updates page.

We're very excited to know that Alan Foster will lend his skill once again to the Alien franchise and continue to propel this new series further. As new details arrive for his Alien: Covenant film novelization, we'll be sure to keep you updated!

The future of Alien

The Alien franchise is taking a dramatic turn at 20th Century Studios, now owned by Disney. Currently there are two major Alien projects in development - a new Alien TV series by Noah Hawley and a new, stand-alone Alien movie being directed by Fede Alvarez. Both of which will be taking the franchise in a new direction - moving away from the Alien prequel direction Ridley Scott set out to pursue back in 2012.

Yes! Glad to hear it's getting a novelization in the first place. I wonder why Prometheus didn't have one??

I wonder what he means by "some unique original material"? Hm..

Prometheus did have a novelization wich was written by Joe Spies and Damon Lindelof,sadly it was only released in Japan.

Btw its nice to see A:C getting a novelization,im just wondering what differences will it have from a film.

I think it's safe to assume this will be written in English.
