Well, a long time ago, Connie Yu (?) told us it was done but that was the old squad build so...

Now, they've redone it as a sorta CoD lone wolf Marine accompanied by other Marines in a frantic run for their lives.

In the 360Gamer article, it stated they only started on this build sometime in 2009.

Edit:

2006 to 2008: proof of concept prototype and market testing.

2009 to present: A:CM's revised version build.

^ That shouldve been filed away under rumour and hearsay. She didnt directly state that. But more that her work on the game was finished, which obviously it was because she was leaving the company for the new MS Halo team, 343 Industries. Its certainly not relevant now Raider.

Even if they don't and it's all down to the publisher we're talking Sega and Take 2, which again is probably apples and pears.

PS, I hate the apples & pears metaphore but I couldn't think of another one, so for that people of the world, I am sorry.
^ This sounds accurate enough to me. BL2 = 2K, ACM = Sega. Completely different publishers, completely different marketing for the games.

If it's pushed back to 2013 I think they should just wait until the next gen comes out and put some time into upping the graphics and polishing everything else.

I also figured that maybe A:CM would get pushed to early 2013 in favor of BL2. I do have to say that BL2 looks awesome though.

As for A:CM being delayed, perhaps those rumors of a Wii-U version will come true. Maybe the delays are to also get the Wii-U version going so that there isn't a huge gap in the release dates between the XB360/PS3 versions and the Wii-U one?

I am kinda worried about the A:CM story being messed up by Prometheus. Sure I am going to see Prometheus because I am an Alien fan, but I can't shake the feeling that it feels like Star Trek mashed up with Alien, and that there are going to possibly be some lame story elements being dumped into the Alien mythos with that film. I worry that it will sour the excitement for Aliens: Colonial Marines a bit if it turns out to not be the awesome Alien prequel we are all hoping for. Or if it changes a lot of the Alien(s) backstory it could taint our perception of ALIENS and in turn, Aliens: Colonial Marines.

Forget about it. I think they don't have enough budget left to do it again. When talking about SEGA as a publisher, you can be sure that they're looking for just one thing: MONEY! PROFITS! So, the more they push it forward and put money into it, the less will be their profits. And they certainly don't want it to happen.
