Per reports, developer Gearbox Software has revealed that the company's eagerly anticipated upcoming title 'Aliens: Colonial Marines' has just gone gold, and more importantly, the game is on track for its previously revealed February release date.

"Today, we're proud to announce that we hit every one of those targets, with the game's gold status indicating that all parties have examined the release candidate and signed off on the code as final and suitable for manufacturing, after which the game will be shipped to retail and propped to digital networks in time for launch on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 come February 12, 2013," the official Gearbox page for the game states.

The page also states that when the company first announced the release date for 'Aliens: Colonial Marines' back in May 2012, Gearbox Software CEO Randy Pitchford said that the game's development had progressed to the point where the company could see the end of it and "be very confident in both our vision for the game as well as our launch date."

Moreover, per a Eurogamer report, 'Aliens: Colonial Marines' is also set to hit the Nintendo Wii U platform. The information was revealed after the Web site noticed that there was no mention of Wii U when Gearbox announced that the game was going gold for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

"We asked Sega what was going on. The publisher told us the Wii U version is due out in the Wii U launch window which, technically, runs up to the end of March 2013," the Eurogamer report stated. "Sega reiterated it had never announced the Tuesday, 12th February date for Wii U. That worldwide date only ever applied on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360."

More details state that Gearbox Software is not in charge of developing the Wii U version of 'Aliens: Colonial Marines.' That responsibility is currently on the shoulders of Cambridge, Massachusetts-based Demiurge Studios. Demiurge Studios was previously known for working co-operatively on 'Green Day: Rock Band' with Harmonix and Electronic Arts.

It is yet to be seen how the Wii U version of the game actually turns out, especially when an entirely different developing studio has been put in charge of the game for that version.
