Default A:CM Gone Gold!

Exciting news -- Aliens: Colonial Marines has gone gold on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360!

When we first announced the release date for Aliens: Colonial Marines back in May 2012, Gearbox Software CEO Randy Pitchford noted that the development had progressed to the point where we could see the end and be very confident in both our vision for the game as well as our launch date.

Today, we’re proud to announce that we hit every one of those targets, with the game's gold status indicating that all parties have examined the release candidate and signed off on the code as final and suitable for manufacturing, after which the game will be shipped to retail and propped to digital networks in time for launch on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 come February 12, 2013!

Now's the time to make sure you've got your pre-order locked in as participating retailers are offering in-game bonus content -- check with your local retailers and visit this page for more details.

Stay frosty, the next chapter in the Aliens story is almost here. Will you be able to fight the fear?

Awesome!!!

Good job GBX guys and gals. Now we can soon enjoy your hard work.

Edit: So wait, Is GBX Shop now selling the CE? I followed your link and it has North America with the CE listed as while supplies last. So is GBX selling the CE in the US?

We're not selling the CE directly through the Gearbox Shop, but a number of retailers will be carrying the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the CE here in North America.
