The team involved in Cold Iron Studios were all part of Cryptic Studios, who you may remember were behind the Neverwinter franchise.

“Cold Iron Studios has amazing design, craftsmanship and development talent that we are excited to welcome at FoxNext Games as we pursue our goal to build a multi-platform, multi-genre portfolio of great games,” Aaron Loeb, president of studios at FoxNext Games said in a release. “I am a personal fan of Cold Iron's previous work and all of us at FoxNext Games are thrilled to be working with them as they create an action-packed persistent world, steeped in the mysteries of this beloved Alien universe.”
Foxnet has been snapping up development studios, most notably in the mobile games industry. One of them is Aftershock in Los Angeles who are working a mobile strategy game based on the Avatar film in conjunction with 20th Century Fox.
