20. Century Fox announced the next project, or possibly projects, in the Alien universe on Saturday using a vague and exciting social media post. This next Alien universe release, slated for a "2019" launch, contains a "read, watch, play" promise, suggesting a mixed launch, if various parts could get going.
Its interactive aspects will be paid by, at least, the protagonist already mentioned in the above teaser: Amanda Ripley. This character, the daughter of Sigourney Weaver Weaver's character Ellen Ripley, featured prominently in the 201
