Possibly the biggest disappoint from the early 2013 year has to be Aliens: Colonial Marines, from Gearbox, the team behind the critically acclaimed series, Borderlands. After a heavily supported Facebook petition campaign, it looks like Gearbox will finally be issuing an apology to their fans. I’m not at all surprised that the developers will be apologizing for the game, Aliens: CM just didn’t feel complete, and it felt extremely rushed. There has already been a ton of criticism thrown in the direction of Randy Pitchford, but it looks like the negative comments will start to suffice.
The official Facebook page stated the following, “Hi gamers. The 8Gb patch for Aliens: Colonial Marines is in fact a hoax which was posted on twitter. However, we have been able to confirm with sources within Sega, and Gearbox that one or the other, or both companies will be making an official statement this week on what happened to the game between the demo, and its official release. An apology will also be in this statement as well as details on a potential software patch. We will be following these sources very closely this week, and will provide you with the latest info as we get them. ~ Sarge
