Alien: Isolation 2 may finally be in development

Alien: Isolation 2 may finally be in development

A follow up to Creative Assembly's 2014 title Alien: Isolation may finally be in the works.

You may have heard, The Callisto Protocol released today and the reception is mixed to say the least. One recurring comment that surprised me is just how underwhelmed so many people were by the scare factor, especially considering Glen Schofield intended for this to be “the single most scariest game for PC and consoles.”

Don’t get me wrong, The Callisto Protocol is no walk in the park. In our review, GAMINGbible’s Will wrote, “You’ll frequently hear all sorts of beasts crawling through vents below or darting across walkways above. You never know when your worst nightmare will jump out,” yet the game still fails to reach the horror heights it perhaps intended to. Fancy a truly frightening horror though? Alien: Isolation will send shivers down your spine. It’s criminal that there’s no follow-up to Creative Assembly’s excellent 2014 title but that could soon change.

Speaking of The Callisto Protocol, take a look at some gameplay below.

Insider Gaming reports that two new Alien games are in development. One is a AAA title with a tentative release date set for late 2023. It’s believed that Grasshopper Manufacture will develop the title. Grasshopper is perhaps best known for Lollipop Chainsaw, Killer7, and the No More Heroes series. The game is using the codename ‘Marathon’ and is believed to be a survival-horror which takes inspiration from Dead Space and Resident Evil.

This is according to documentation shown by sources to Insider Gaming under the condition of anonymity. The same source also claimed that Alien: Isolation 2 is in the early stages of development. Presumably this would be at Creative Assembly but no further information was provided. As always do take this with a huge pinch of salt until anything is confirmed.

I’d be surprised if a sequel to Alien: Isolation never came to fruition after the first game proved to be hugely popular. If you need something to scratch the itch, the Nintendo Switch port of Alien: Isolation is great - plus there’s this fan-made UE5 remake project that’s also worth a watch.
