The new Alien game, Blackout, is a mobile joint

Alien Isolation

20th Century Fox tease a new Alien game that may actually be an interactive movie like Bandersnatch

"Currently, the team is working on a new PC and console shooter based on the Alien franchise".

Although it's possible the new game could ignore this entirely you would've thought using the same character means it is going to be a continuation of some sort.

FoxNext Games' studio, Cold Iron Studios, is also now at work on a massively multiplayer online shooter set in the Alien cinematic universe for consoles and PC.

Amanda Ripley was also the hero of Alien: Isolation, so it looks like we may be picking up with where we left off with her in the last game, but the tagline of "Read". Can we just get an official VR version of Isolation? Unlike in Isolation, where the majority of the game was tracking down what had happened with Ellen Ripley.

FIRST CLASS ALIEN MOBILE EXPERIENCE An immersive and captivating Alien experience, perfectly designed for mobile gaming, bringing the Alien story to life. As the Alien hunts you and your crew down you'll have to remotely guide your team using the station's emergency systems, which sounds like this release will contain some strategic gameplay.

Congress has banned NASA from working with China on space exploration because of national security concerns. The Yutu-2 rover has six wheels that all have power, so it can continue to operate even if one wheel fails.

SURVIVE OR DIE Using only the space station's limited power supply to operate a holographic map, surveillance cameras, and motion tracker, attempt to remain hidden and protect your crew from the ideal hunter in seven fear-inducing levels.

Players will have to outsmart the Xenomorph by making perilous choices and they'll have to rely on the damaged controls of the space station or risk sacrificing crew members to avoid deadly contact, permanently altering the outcome of the game.

Now, we 're not averse to mobile games over here at VG247.

To be honest, I'm a bit disappointed this is a mobile-only affair. Alien: Blackout consists of seven levels, the site said, though no pricing information was provided either.
