It's been months since we heard any news concerning Cold Iron Studio's untitled Online Alien shooter game and since the Disney merger concluded, there were doubts the game would still continue to be developed. Thankfully, to our relief, Cold Iron Studios have offered a small, but uplifting update regarding their Alien title today!
Although no specifics were revealed, simply put the game is still "going strong" they said in a recent tweet, announcing their new acquisition by DayBreak Games:

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.
