According to NeoGAF, the latest issue of EGM (February 2011) is reporting that Aliens Colonial Marines, wont be released in 2011. The game was originally scheduled for a 2009 release, but was then pushed to Nov. 11, 2011, according to Gamestop.com.
Supposedly Gearbox is delaying the release date again to finish working on Duke Nukem Forever and to start on Borderlands 2. (Source)
Maybe they are pushing it to 2012, hoping that the new Ridley Scott Alien Prequel/s will renew interest in the franchise.
Either way, Borderlands 2 will be a much anticipated game in my books, and the additional time might allow them to greatly improve the game, because the last thing we want is another disappointing game like Aliens vs Predator from last year.
