A few more details have popped up in regards to the development controversy of the recently-released multiplatform title, “Aliens: Colonial Marines.” According to a report by Destructoid on Feb. 24, a potential whistle blower claimed that the funding meant for the first-person shooter was stolen from Sega. It was used instead on the production of “Borderlands,” “Borderlands 2” and “Duke Nukem Forever.” He also speculated that Gearbox Software export a majority of the development project to Time Gate. You can check out some screens from “Borderlands 2” in the slideshow at the top of this article and the comments from the whistle blower below (courtesy of Destructoid):
Now here is the company that should get most of the blame: Gearbox Software and Randy Pitchford. Gearbox stole from SEGA, they robbed us, lied to us about the game, and tried to get another company to make the game instead. Let's see where the funding went shall we? Everyone said the game went to both Borderlands games, but Duke Nukem Forever gets a mention as well, but it's pushed out of the spotlight, because people want to forget about that game, and I don't blame them! Duke Nukem Forever had a big impact on Aliens: Colonial Marines as well.
“Aliens: Colonial Marines” was released for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms on Feb. 19, 2013. A Nintendo Wii U version of the first-person shooter will also be coming out next month. The other recent Gearbox Software developed video game, “Borderlands 2,” launched for the Mac, PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on Sept. 18 of last year.
