"Sega can confirm that the Wii U sku of Aliens: Colonial Marines is no longer in development," the publisher said.
Colonial Marines was scheduled to hit Wii U by the end of March, but its universally panned release cooled interest in the long-overdue title. Port developer Demiurge Studios was nonchalant in its response to GameSpot.
"We were very sorry to hear about the cancellation of Aliens for Wii U. It's business-as-usual here at Demiurge Studios. We are focused on making Shoot Many Robots for mobile kick ass and we've got another unannounced game in the works that we can't wait to unveil!"
In space, no one can hear the bang or the whimper.
