PSP title to tie in with forthcoming Fox movie

UK-based developer Rebellion has been signed by Sierra to create an original PSP tie-in to the forthcoming Aliens/Predator film.

Rebellion previously created Aliens vs. Predator for the Atari Jaguar in 1994 and later produced a PC title with the same name in 1999.

“We’re pleased to once again partner with Twentieth Century Fox to deliver an engaging interactive extension to the film,” said Al Simone, senior vice president of global marketing for Sierra Entertainment.

“Pitting two of Hollywood’s most popular and terrifying monsters against each other, the upcoming Aliens/Predator movie will provide a gripping gaming experience for not only fans of the film, but anyone with a PSP system.”

Elie Dekel, executive vice president of Fox Licensing & Merchandising added: “The Aliens/Predator franchise is a crown jewel in the Fox portfolio and one of the most exciting properties for interactive content. Sierra Entertainment will create a game that will keep both fans of the films and avid gamers alike engaged for hours of immersive gameplay.”
