Fox have finished releasing the final three parts to their 6-part Alien dossier which they unveiled yesterday. Originally, we speculated that the dossier was teasing potential concept art for the upcoming untitled Alien game, but official marketing by Fox suggest the dialogue associated with each dossier is being told from the perspective of Amanda Ripley - Ellen Ripley's daughter and protagonist of Creative Assembly's Alien: Isolation game. Her character will be explored further in the upcoming novel Aliens: Resistance.
Whether the new marketing is just for the upcoming new comic or not is uncertain since Fox also teased an expansion of the Alien franchise in 2019.
The final dossiers (below) show a darker side of the Weyland-Yutani corporation. We learn that the company bred, transported and bombed their own colonies with the Xenomorph parasite in an effort to better study the organism and how they can utilize it for their own gain. Check out the final 3 dossiers below and let us know what you think in the comments section!
"Day 4: The experiments aren’t just in the lab. Company is sending the larvae somewhere. They’re using their own private military to move them."
"Day 5: It’s worse than I thought. They are dropping these payloads on the planet below. What is the company’s aim?"
"Day 6: It’s a nightmare. They have infested and destroyed the Weyland-Yutani colony below. Killing all of the facility’s personnel. We have to expose this. I know they’ll try to discredit me. Or worse.
Tell someone — before they do this to anyone else."

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.
