Disney Sells FoxNext to Scopely

"Disney has sold FoxNext Games LA, maker of the video game Marvel Strike Force, and Cold Iron Studios in San Jose to mobile game specialist Scopely, the companies announced Wednesday.

The deal stems from Disney’s $71.3 billion acquisition last year of most of 21st Century Fox, including FoxNext Games. The transaction does not affect the separate portfolio of Fox IP licensed game titles, which will continue to be a part of Disney’s licensed games business.

Financial terms were not revealed in the official announcement." (source)

I really hope this doesn't mean the untitled Alien title Cold Iron Studios are working on will be another BS mobile app...

This below is tough news for the brand as well, below, and related to Cold Iron Studios.

 

"Dark Horse Cancels Brian Wood’s Aliens: Colonial Marines: Rising Threat Over New Allegations

Dark Horse has confirmed to Bleeding Cool that the upcoming Aliens: Colonial Marines: Rising Threat written by Wood scheduled for September will no longer be published and they will no longer be pursuing new comic book projects with Wood." (source)

 

Dark Horse Comics

"Aliens Colonial Marines: Rising Threat delves into the formative years of the Colonial Marines. Tying into the events of the upcoming Cold Iron Studios videogame, this new series introduces Olivia Shipp, leader of a squad of battle-weary Marines who have defied orders to rescue the survivors of a refinery under siege." (source, Dark Horse’s Press Release)

 

This sucks because Aliens: Colonial Marines: Rising Threat tied together the novel Alien: Echo and the Colonial Marines story with the character Olivia Shipp and would most likely help promote the Cold Iron Studios Alien game as well.
