Alien: Blackout | Fox registers name for use in games; can be announced at the Game Awards
A new game in the Alien universe will likely be announced at the 2018 Game Awards, according to Geoff Keighley founder.
In tweets about the awards program, Keighley posted images with the words “WORLDS WILL CHANGE” in a blue-on-black font that looks a lot like fonts used in the Alien and Aliens films. Keighley wrote that “the worlds will change” on December 6, the date for broadcasting the game’s prizes.
That’s not very important or convincing, but luckily for Alien fans, there’s more: a new trademark for a game called Alien: Blackout was introduced this week by 20th Century Fox, as the Dark Side of Gaming reports. The trademark covers computer game discs and software, as well as “offering computer games online … via the internet”.

We know that a new Alien game has been in development for some time – earlier this year, we learned that FoxNext Games had purchased Cold Iron Studios to work on the game, which is rumored to have a persistent online world.
The Game Awards will be released at 8:30 pm (Brasília time) on December 6th
