Total War nuts Creatively Assembly have been given the keys to the Aliens license by SEGA, and it's looking like a "blockbuster" project says Conservative MP Ed Vaizey.

The UK politician went on to describe the visuals as "out of this world", with the concept "amazing". The new 10k square foot floor is mainly for their console team.


The UK-based Creatively Assembly has opened up a new facility in West Sussex that occupies 10,000 square foot of prime real estate, reports our resident deputy editor Joe Robinson who's busy putting the thumb screws to reps at SEGA's event today.

The Total War creator will have 200 staff at the new facility within a year, and it's mainly going to focus on their console development efforts. It was Conservative MP Ed Vaizey that blew the cover of the new Alien videogame in the works via his twittering.

Joe tells us back here at Strategy Informer HQ that Total War: Shogun 2 saw 1.5 million battles take place within the game’s first 24 hours of being released. More details soon hopefully on this exciting new Alien IP videogame from Creative Assembly.

So this was the FPS IP that was being rumoured for CA. Interesting to see how they go with it.
