There’s not much substantiating this rumor, but it’s fun to think about.
In next month’s Official Playstation Magazine, a source reportedly told the magazine in its rumor mill section that The Creative Assembly is either already working on, or preparing to work on a sequel to Alien: Isolation. Currently The Creative Assembly’s website only lists open job positions for the Total War series and Halo Wars.
“Our sources tell us that after work is finished on Halo Wars 2, a new Alien game may start development over at Alien Isolation dev, Creative Assembly.”
The Creative Assembly recently acquired Crytek Black Sea (Creative Assembly Sophia) and reportedly have a number of unannounced titles in the works, including a new historical based Total War game.
“Creative Assembly Sofia will be working exclusively on content for Creative Assembly and will prove an invaluable asset given the multitude of unannounced titles currently in the works,” Sega Europe executive Jurgen Post recently said in a press release.
Alien: Isolation was released in October 2014 to mostly positive reviews. Unfortunately sales for the game weren’t as high as publisher Sega were expecting. Regardless, neither Sega or The Creative Assembly have taken a sequel to Alien: Isolation off the table.
With the Alien: Covenant movie releasing in May, it may not come as a surprise to hear about a sequel to Alien: Isolation shortly after. Maybe E3?
