American film studio 20th Century Fox has filed a trademark for “Alien: Blackout” under the category of video games. Currently under examination, the newly registered trademark might mean that another Alien video game is in the works.
Spotted by Gematsu, the official listing on the WIPO site says the trademark relates to “computer game discs; software,” and “providing interactive online computer games utilizing communication networks, including global communication networks.” Apart from drawing up a strong possibility of another Alien game, the trademark doesn’t give us a lot of details.
The most recent game in the Alien series was 2014’s Alien Isolation. Developed by Creative Assembly, the survival horror game was based on the fictional film series of the same name. Creative Assembly is not the developer of this project, which means that Alien: Blackout will probably feature an alternate storyline.
Twitter has been buzzing away as an announcement is expected at The Game Awards show which will air on December 6th. Game Awards producer Geoff Keighley has tweeted a teaser image with a very mysterious caption. Another odd tweet followed from Hideo Kojima which is seemingly relevant to the topic.
We’ll learn more details about Alien: Blackout on December 6th when The Game Awards show is aired. Nearly four years later, Alien fans hold your breath, as another title in the series might be announced.
