Aliens: Colonial Marines Officially Cancelled for Wii U

Wii U owners can stop expecting the latest Aliens game

In news that probably shocks no one, Sega has officially confirmed that the Wii U version of Aliens: Colonial Marines is no longer in development. The latest Aliens game, developed by Gearbox and published by Sega, came out mid February of this year on PS3, 360, and PC; however, the promised Wii U version was conspicuously absent from Q1 2013. There was no comment by Sega or Demiurge (the developer in charge of the Wii U port) then about its absence, leading to speculation about the port's cancellation. Today it's official: there's no plans of it ever happening.

It's quite possible that the decision had to do with the massive amount of disappointment and rage voiced by gaming community over the other versions of the game. We gave it at 3 out of 5, feeling like there were some redeeming qualities in the co-op, but ultimately rampant technical issues and a campaign that lasted less than 5 hours bogged the game down as a whole. 

What do you think, Wii U owners? Are you unhappy about this news?
