NECA Toys have no plans of making any future Alien: Covenant figures, the company expressed on Twitter moments ago. Responding to a fan question concerning potential figures to be made of Daniels, Walter and even a re-issue of the David 8 figure from their Prometheus lineup, NECA reaponded with a disappointing "no such plans".
NECA were reluctant to elaborate on why they have no plans of expanding their Alien: Covenant lineup, but common sense would dictate that the existing lineup simply was not as profitable as expected, or required in order to secure an additional wave.
This news is rather unfortunate as the figures NECA did create for Covenant were pretty remarkable. Check out a few below:

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.
