According to founder Cliff Bleszinski, Boss Key Productions is in talks with Fox to make FPS games in the Alien universe before its shutdown.
He tweeted a summary of the game, introducing you as the alien Newt, with Ellen Ripley as the main character.
But the game never passed the initial planning stage, and the project was put on hold as Disney acquired Fox.
"Before the BKP closed, we were negotiating with Fox for new games in the alien series." "Then Disney bought them, but immediately fell into chaos and was frustrating," Bleszinski said.
"Ripley will live and become your 'Cortana / Anya'. You will grow to Newt. On Earth. Weyland-Yutani is working in a" Black Mesa "style The facility provides aliens with weapons, and of course, all the hell is ruined. Your robot friend, Bishop? After the alien doll, a new name is "Casey".

He went on to add that the expected game is clearly "FPS" and surpasses all the canons of "Alien"-so "Alien 3", "Resurrection", "Prometheus" and "Covenant" will be quickly Kicked to the nearest bin.
Judging from the life cycle of Boss Key Production, these conversations were released after the popular partnership between Fox, Sega, and Creative Assembly in Alien: Isolation in 2014, which was made commercially Great success. However, because the forward-looking Boss Key game is FPS, this shows that the game focuses on direct action, not the horror of survival in Crysis.
Bleszinski has been sharing the last few days of Boss Key Productions' stories on social media, and took to Instagram last week to lament the failure of Lawbreakers, which is his studio's view on the trend of hero shooting games.
Lawbrekers found it difficult to compete with Overwatch, and Bleszinski said that his push for the "Awaken Brothers" political campaign led potential fans to think "this is a studio where the CEO refuses to make his female characters sexier," not games.
For now, Bleszinski seems to have suspended game production, instead spending time writing memoirs and investing in non-game-related businesses.
