The disappointment of the prequels that left a bad taste in fans mouths. Seems like the franchise is open to new ideas to expand. We’ve been hearing hearing rumblings on a TV show for quite sometime which would be ideal for a thing like this.
Over the past week, the official social media accounts for Alien posted a series of teasers in the form of animated images. These were accompanied with intriguing captions for A 6-Part Dossier Exposing the Secret History of Weyland-Yutani. Anyone familiar with the franchise will immediately recognize the name this name, as it’s the multinational conglomerate behind much of the tech featured in the franchise.
There’s also talk of a new Alien video game. It was recently discovered that 20th Century Fox trademarked Alien: Blackout for use with computer game discs and software. Interestingly, three of the posts contain a hashtag for Amanda Ripley, the daughter of Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver). Amanda was featured as the lead character in 2013’s video game Alien: Isolation and she’s due to appear in the upcoming comic Alien: Resistance. It’s possible these teasers could be related to the comic which is due out on January 23, 2019. The description of the first issue certainly seems to match perfectly with the captions.
