Funnily enough, FoxNext Games are now working on Marvel Strike Force, a free-to-play mobile RPG slated for release sometime this year. Fox has just revealed that they're hoping to make an Alien game closer to the latter's quality with the video game studio they founded past year.

The game will be the first Alien game title since 2014's Alien: Isolation for the Xbox One. While the addition of a studio like Cold Iron certainly adds some legitimacy to Fox wanting to do more than dabble in games, it will still be some time before we see if they're really planning on sticking around.

"Cold Iron adds a whole dimension of game development and play to our arsenal: long play-session MMOs targeted to PC and console gamers". Since this new game is being described as a shooter, it'll probably be more in line with James Cameron's 1986 action-horror sequel Aliens.

No word yet on when the new Alien shooter will arrive, but don't expect it for a while. PC and console are immersive platforms that will allow us to transport users into their favourite worlds.

There have been over a dozen Alien video games produced since the early '80s, and with varying levels of quality. "When you pair a great team that is deeply passionate about the brand with the creators of that brand, you unlock the greatest possibilities".

"We'll have more to share about how Cold Iron will be tackling the Alien universe in the future". However, the company is made up of developers who have previously worked on the likes of Bioshock Infinite, Doom (the really good 2016 reboot), Borderlands and Metroid Prime.

"We believe in FoxNext's vision and we are thrilled about the opportunity to explore an incredible and rich universe", Chief Executive Officer Craig Zinkievich commented.

"It's Aliens! We're all excited to be working on such a storied franchise".
