Shock Horror! Well no not really as to no ones real surprise Sega have confirmed today that Aliens: Colonial Marines will not launch on the Wii U having missed its launch date of March 31st.

We reached out to Sega firsthand, who confirmed the cancellation with this statement:

Sega can confirm that the Wii U sku of Aliens: Colonial Marines is no longer in development.

A massive blow to Wii U’s already sparse catalogue? Well probably not considering how poorly the game reviewed but it really is another slap in the face to credibility of the franchise. Are you disappointed about this? Let us know in the comments below!
