Since then, the team has expanded to 30+ awesome developers and we’ve moved into a downtown office in the heart of Silicon Valley. We’re a diverse group of passionate gamers with decades of experience developing and launching award-winning MMO and action titles.

The studio had previously been purchased by FoxNext back in 2018, though since then we haven’t heard much about their Alien shooter. Speculations began to roam that the project was cancelled, and with Fox being sold off to Disney that only further speculations. Thankfully, the studio has been saved by Daybreak. Still not fresh details on this Alien game in terms of reveal or release date. Hopefully this will be the year that we hear more about this project, we’ll be sure to keep you all updated if any new development arises.
