Alien: Isolation, the new Alien trademark by 20th Century Fox from a couple of days ago, is indeed a new Alien video game developed by Creative Assembly. At least according to an industry source.

The same source also claims the game’s protagonist will be none other than Ellen Ripley’s daughter.

Actually, that little girl is Newt for the movie Aliens, and not Ripley’s daughter – Amanda. Amanda is mentioned briefly in the same movie as having died while Ripley was in cryosleep for over 30 years.

This is the first canonical entry in the Alien universe that tells the story of Amanda Ripley.

The anonymous source told Kotaku that Alien: Isolation is a first-person shooter with stealth and horror elements, set to release on current and next-gen consoles in 2014.

It takes place almost entirely on a single space station that’s terrorized by a lone Alien – very similar to the events of the first movie. Amanda will mostly be shooting at clones and soldiers (mostly), and will not gun down hordes of Xenomorphs – which is probably good for the game’s intense atmosphere.

Sega has not relesed an official statement as of yet.
