Gamers will have to wait before entering the iconic "Aliens" atmosphere one more time.

Gearbox Software has announced that Aliens: Colonial Marines has been delayed until February 12, 2013, when it will finally launch for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. A date for the Wii U version is forthcoming.

Gearbox Software CEO Randy Pitchford didn't go into details concerning the delay, but he did offer a new trailer (see it below) at the Gearboxity blog . He did say the game must feel "authentic" and when the game was first unveiled back in 2008, the team had only just finished prototypes. Basically, Pitchford equates the development cycle to that of Borderlands , so that isn't too bad.
