[Updated] Alien: Blackout Trademarked by 20th Century Fox

You still don't understand what you're dealing with, do you? I admire its purity.

The Game Awards is set to kick off on 6 Dec but due to time differences it will likely be the 7 here in the United Kingdom when all the Alien news comes out.

One such game that is rumoured to be slithering out of an airduct and ready to introduce you to glomping vagina crabs that want to be friens with benefits on your face?

Earlier today, EuroGamer shared some thoughts about the new Alien game's development.

Sounds cryptic enough, right?

[Updated] Alien: Blackout Trademarked by 20th Century Fox

A few days ago, Hideo Kojima visited 20th Century Fox and posed with the Aliens props scattered throughout the offices.

It looks like Cold Iron's Alien shooter might just be revealed at The Game Awards next month, based on the Twitter account of the events' creator and producer, Geoff Keighley, and a recent trademark for Alien: Blackout filed by 20th Century Fox, and spotted by Eurogamer.

The font used in the image looks similar to the font used in other "Alien" franchise displays, according to VideoGamer. During an interview with GamesIndustry.biz back in January, the company's CEO Craig Zinkievich stated the game would "explore areas of the universe that fans haven't gotten to experience". Considering that 2019 is also the 40th anniversary of the original Alien movie, and the timing couldn't be more flawless. Not only is Alien famous for retaining its 80s sci-fi aesthetic, but the "W" could be hinting towards the fictional Weyland Corp, or Weyland-Yutani Corp after its acquisition.

The Game Awards are set to take place on Thursday 6 December (the six finalists up for the top award are all here), and it looks like it will be launch pad for the announcement of a new Alien game.
