A portion of Aliens: Colonial Marines was outsourced to Section 8’s TimeGate studios
It is coming through the news wire that Gearbox was not the only developer on Aliens: Colonial Marines. Superannuation, uber gaming sleuth, has discovered that a majority of the game was outsourced to Houston-based developer TimeGate Studios. Here is what the ex-employee revealed
TimeGate Studios are most famous for their work on Section 8 and the FEAR expansions. Other studios were part of the process including Demiurge Studios and Nerve Software. Regardless of what was outsourced to whom, it looks like Aliens: Colonial Marines had a spotty development, and the end product may have suffered for it.
Expect our review early next week.
