Alien: Isolation (PS4)
Alien: Blackout Rumours Hint at Possible Reveal For The Game Awards

It looks like a new Alien title could be set for a big reveal during The Keighley's next week, better known as The Game Awards 2018. Recently, there have been whispers that a new game featuring HR Giger's iconic killing machines could be in the offing, and this latest rumour is the most compelling hint yet.

The Game Awards host Geoff Keighley tweeted 'Worlds Will Change' early this month in a font that closely resembles the typeface found in the Alien universe, and 20th Century Fox has also recently trademarked something called 'Alien: Blackout', which strongly suggests a new Alien game could be in the works.

With more than four years passing since Alien: Isolation launched, it seems high time we had a new entry in the series. Cold Iron Studios is currently attached to a new 'AAA' Alien game too, the studio acquired by FoxNext back in January. It's entirely feasible that Alien: Blackout could potentially be that game.

All will be revealed on 6th December when The Game Awards 2018 airs. Hopefully, we'll know all about Alien: Blackout, and whether it can live up to the high bar set by Alien: Isolation by then.

The big question question for me, is this going to be an Alien game or an Aliens game i.e will it have just the 1 Alien or will there be loads of them?

Surely this won't be as bad as Aliens: Colonial Marines was, different for one, and nobody would want their game to be compared to that game.

@1 My guess is it'll be an Aliens game, if it's not in the same vein as Isolation, the title Alien: Blackout makes it sound more action than horror to me.

As good as Isolation was, it's definitely time to bring out the big guns!:D

This better be a sequel to Idilation in one way or another. It’s been far too long, but hyped either way!

I am thinking it's going to be similar to Isolation. I hope they don't turn it into a FPS and keep the survival horror elements strong. Blackout could mean stuck in a building or spaceship with no power.

@CrystalGoddess88 I’m sorry, but with a title like Alien (note the singular): Blackout, that could not sound more like a horror game.
