Aliens: Colonial Marines has been super long in development, right? They've been talking about it for ages. Well, actually, it's not been that long. They just talked about it before starting it.

Gearbox Software's Randy Pitchford wants a damn good heist game, and even went to the trouble of securing the Heat license to do something about it. It hasn't been touched though.
