A new Alien novel has been announced by Titan Books and will act as a prequel to Cold Iron Studios' upcoming untitled Alien game! The title of the new Titan novel is Alien: Infiltrator and according to a pre-order listing on Amazon, the synopsis involves the following:

The official prequel to the huge new Alien video game from Cold Iron Studios, as a Weyland-Yutani scientist arrives at Pala Station and finds the researchers there courting disaster… of the Xenomorph kind.

Dr. Timothy Hoenikker arrives on Pala Station, a Weyland-Yutani facility. Lured there by the promise of alien artifacts, instead he finds a warped bureaucracy and staff of misfits testing the effects of Xenomorph bio-materials on living creatures. Unbeknownst to the personnel, however, there is an infiltrator among them whose actions could spell disaster. Also on staff is Victor Rawlings, a former marine who gathers together other veterans to prepare for the worst. As the personnel receive a delivery of alien eggs, the experiments spin out of control, and only the former Colonial Marines can stand between the humans and certain death.

Alien: Infiltrator is scheduled to ship out July 28th, 2020.

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.

Treat yourself to some Alien Merchandise!

Hopefully it means the Novel and Games would give us something thats a little different to the Standard Xenomorph that we see in the Franchise... i think Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection was Interesting as far as the Aesthetic being a LITTLE different, i would like to see other more Extreme Differences though.

REALLY excited for both the game and the novel! Alien: Isolation will probably forever be my favorite game, but having , "massive," Alien shooter offers promise. I think it is wild that Disney allowed it to continue being made after The Merger, considering the profit issue of Isolation. A shooter may attract a wider audience though. 


The novel sounds... Promising, but the recent Alien novels have either been great or awful imo, so I can't be too excited until I read it. It does get old at times reading about all of these (seemingly countless) outposts with Alien specimens and outbreaks, but I just love the franchise and want more. So,yeah. Hopefully both the novel and game live up to my hype!

@BlackAnt, correction: Ash says "polarised silicon", not "polarised silicone". I know it says silicone in the subtitles, but I'm English, I hear what he says, and he says "silicon". If he'd said silicone, it would have rhymed with cone, not cun.

^^ Sorry, wrong thread.

Ha Ha HOX!

Thanks for the Bump though ;)

Seems some of the PLOT to this Novel could be taking some Elements from the ALIEN V: RED HARVEST Project?
