Aliens: Colonial Marines Wii U version canceled

The Wii U version of the year's worst-received game is over, man. Sega today told GameSpot that work on Aliens: Colonial Marines for Nintendo's console is no more.

"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.

    That is good or bad news?

    Well this was obviously going to happen. The game didn't even succeed on consoles with good controllers.

    This makes perfect sense, really. Why release a version of a game after it has been critically eviscerated on other consoles? Even if this was going to be the "ultimate" version, from what I hear about the PS3/360/PC versions, that's not much of a claim to make. It doesn't really say much about the state of the WiiU. The lack of *decent* 3rd Party games does.
