    Aliens: Colonial Marines for Wii U canceled

    Promote it as being a game made for the WiiU
    Then cancel as the game itself turns out a bit arse

    [UPDATE] Sega confirms Nintendo version of first-person shooter no longer in development; "business-as- usual" at developer Demiurge.
    [UPDATE] Following the publication of this story, a representative for Demiurge Studios provided a statement saying it is "business-as-usual" at the company following the cancellation of Aliens: Colonial Marines for Wii U. The statement comes from Demiurge CEO and cofounder Albert Reed.
    "We were very sorry to hear about the cancellation of Aliens for Wii U. It's business-as-usual here at Demiurge Studios. We are focused on making Shoot Many Robots for mobile kick ass and we've got another unannounced game in the works that we can't wait to unveil!"
    The original story follows below
    The Wii U version of Aliens: Colonial Marines--said to be the best-looking version of all--has been canceled. It was originally expected to launch by the end of March.

    "Sega can confirm that the Wii U sku of Aliens: Colonial Marines is no longer in development," Sega told GameSpot today.
    No rationale for the cancellation was provided, though the game's fate had long been in question.
    It is not clear when exactly Aliens: Colonial Marines for Wii U was canceled or if the move will result in layoffs at Cambridge, Mass. developer Demiurge Studios. A representative from the studio was not immediately available to comment.
    Prior to today, Sega had three times refused to provide a status update on the project following the critically panned launch of the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC version in February.
    Gearbox Software CEO Randy Pitchford said last month that he was unsure if Aliens: Colonial Marines for Wii U will ship at all. "We'll see," Pitchford said at the time.

    "That's not our call. I think [developer Demiurge Studios] did amazing work," he went on. "I think it's really cool, but Sega's got to figure that out. We're doing the best we can."

    Spoiler Alert!
