After speculation recently about the current development status for Aliens: Colonial Marines, SEGA has issued a statement which confirms thatthe game has been cancelled for the Nintendo Wii U.
In the statement, a SEGA rep said "SEGA can confirm that the Wii U sku of Aliens: Colonial Marines is no longer in development."
It's likely that the decision was made following the troubled release of Aliens on the PS3 and Xbox 360. Aliens was panned by critics for its sub-standard quality. However, despite this, the game still saw strong sales.
When Aliens released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on the 12th of February worldwide, it became the biggest release of the year in the UK. Its launch week was so strong, that it outsold EA's Dead Space 3.
