AvP Status Update
11:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Every few days a reader will post a question to our forum asking about the status of Logicware's final title, a port of PC shooter Aliens vs Predator. Despite the numerous delays, it seems there is still a strong interest in this unique first person shooter that allows you to play as a Marine, Alien or Predator. In the latest thread, Logicware's own Bill "Burger" Heineman gave a quick update on the game's status. Apparently things are still moving along, despite what the pessimists might say. Here's his post:

Well, Andrew did help on AvP but he wasn't the lead programmer.

Currently I am hanging around Fox with the playtest group making sure the game is ready for prime time.

Andrew refers to Andrew Meggs, also a member of the Logicware/Contraband Entertainment gang. It's great to hear AvP is in playtesting. Hopefully, this means that if no major bugs are found, it could be released "soon." AvP will be published by Fox, and will include cross-platform networking with the PC version, one of the major causes of the repeated delays in this port's development.
