The Creative Assembly team behind Alien: Isolation has another first-person game in the works, but this time it’s an original tactical shooter IP. Exactly what form the game will take remains a mystery, though any hopes you might’ve had for an Alien sequel from the studio should now truly be crushed - though anything first-person from that team is well worth getting excited for.

The new lead environment artist listing says that “Creative Assembly’s award-winning team behind Alien: Isolation are exploring new frontiers with a brand-new and exciting First Person Tactical Shooter IP.” Creative Assembly is also seeking a technical animator, senior UI artist, and technical artist for the project. All these jobs are at the company’s Horsham, UK location.

Alien Isolation 2 could be on its way, with developers Creative Assembly pulling the official site down for maintenance ahead of E3 2018. Though no official confirmation has been given regarding an Alien Isolation sequel, Creative Assembly bringing the site offline indicates that changes are being made to it, and considering the timing it's certainly a curious development. This has led some to speculate that a teaser is being scheduled ahead of E3 in two weeks time.

Alien Isolation garnered a cult following, with many praising the game for offering a terrifying take on the sci-fi franchise. Though it received a moderate critical reception, fans loved the survival-horror game, though we haven't heard much news regarding a potential sequel. That is until today, when AlienIsolation.com was taken down by Creative Assembly.

I would love a sequel to Alien Isolation. Best damn horror game in a decade. The AI on the xenomorph was crazy good and to hear it running around in the ventilation shafts was fucking terrifying. Also, the sound design was incredible and he or she who worked on it deserves some kind of award. Playing this game with headphones was an immersive experience like no other.

Honestly, Alien Isolation is a dream come true for all fans of the original movie. Everytime I hear or see something about Covenant I just remember that at least we got this perfect Alien game. From a story perspective I would like a sequel but I can't imagine a better Alien game than the first. But if they make a sequel, please get rid of the horrible aliasing, that was my only problem with the game :)

It would be brilliant news if a sequel to Alien Isolation is on the way. The game was too damn scary for me to finish but I loved every bit that I played of it. The attention to detail in both the visual and audio design was absolutely stellar. I actually think the music and audio are what contributed so strongly to my anxiety whilst playing it. Really great stuff.

I know it says brand new tactical shooter IP, but could this having some sort of relevance to the 3 new gears games being rumored?

MS has a history of working with CA (halo wars), and we have been hearing news or some sort of tactical RTS style Gears, and a horror game style Gears, and The Coalition aren’t a big enough studio to be having 3 games coming in.

This fits the bill quite a bit for them
