Sega Hires Obsidian Entertainment to Handle Aliens RPG

Sega have signed  Obsidian Entertainment, the devs behind Knights of the Old Republic 2 and Neverwinter Nights 2, to develope an RPG based Sega’s recently aquired license to the Aliens movie series.

The strange thing though is that Sega were previously said to have Obsidian co-develope an RPG (code-name Project Georgia) based on new intellectual property for the PC, Xbox360 and PS3. So this could mean they’ve either switched from new IP to Aliens, or they’re actually working on two projects with Sega.

SEGA® of America Inc. and SEGA® Europe Ltd. today announced that Obsidian Entertainment will create a role-playing game based on the Alien film franchise with license from Twentieth Century Fox Licensing & Merchandising. This title will be developed for the next-generation systems and the PC.

Obsidian Entertainment draws upon their wealth of design knowledge creating successful games such as the best-selling Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: Sith Lords and the award-winning Neverwinter Nights 2 to bring the Alien franchise to role-playing gamers for the first time. The role playing game will build upon the distinctive look and feel of the original films while utilizing next-generation technology to create an entirely different and unique Alien experience.

“With Obsidian Entertainment’s development pedigree, they were our first choice to bring the Alien franchise to the RPG universe,” said Simon Jeffery, President and COO, SEGA of America, Inc. “They are the only developer for us that could effectively combine the Alien mythology with compelling RPG gameplay to create the ultimate Alien experience.”

“We are thrilled to be working with the great production and publishing teams at SEGA to deliver the ultimate in-depth Alien experience to gamers worldwide,” said Feargus Urquhart, CEO of Obsidian Entertainment. “Building an epic RPG with a license as heralded as the Alien franchise is truly a great honor.”
