Sega and Gearbox had been named in a class-action lawsuit over having deceived the public with an E3 2012 build and trailers of Aliens: Colonial Marines that turned out to be nothing like the finished product. Sega had even admitted the trailers were misleading.
Now this would have been great, if it were real.
While Sega has given a standard "can't discuss ongoing litigation" response to inquiries, Gearbox has been less than circumspect.
Gearbox's statement reads, "Attempting to wring a class action lawsuit out of a demonstration is beyond meritless. We continue to support the game, and will defend the rights of entertainers to share their works-in-progress without fear of frivolous litigation."
In the meantime, Timegate Studios has for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in Texas court, in part due to Aliens: Colonial Marines.
