Much has been rumored about the near future of the Alien franchise, with talks of a potential TV series and a new video game (possibly titled Alien: Blackout ) coming our way and the official social media accounts for the brand have been promising that * something * is indeed coming this year. 2019 is, after all, the 40th anniversary of the original classic.
One thing we know for certain is the story of Alien: Isolation character Amanda Ripley (the daughter of Ellen Ripley) will be continued in Dark Horse's upcoming comic book series Aliens: Resistance a 4-issue sequel to the Alien: Isolation video game. And just last night Alien Twitter account dropped a teaser for what may or may not be.
” Daughter. Rebel. Hero. Her story deserves to be told "the tweet reads, and includes the hashtags #Whois, #AmandaRipley, #ReadPlayWatch, #Daughter, #Rebel and #Hero.
Coming Soon, "and it plays up that" Read. Play. Watch. ”Tagline. It's possible this is just marketing for that Aliens: Resistance comic book series, or it could be something else entirely. Could the story of Amanda Ripley be in the form of a television series or a new video game?
We hope to know more very soon…
