Fireteam Elite to Still Get QoL Updates, but Devs are Moving on to Their Next Title


Aliens: Fireteam Elite, the Left-4-Dead-style co-op shooter based on the classic horror franchise, wasn’t a huge hit when it launched, but it seems to have attracted at least somewhat of an audience (estimates are it sold nearly a million copies). The game was enough of a success that developer Cold Iron Studios has committed to further quality-of-life updates, including improved matchmaking, and they have the momentum behind them to get working on their next project. Here’s what they said in a recent statement…

“To everyone who has supported Cold Iron Studios, Aliens: Fireteam Elite, and all of the work we’ve put in, we wanted to first thank you. We have had a lot of things going on under the hood, and the continued dedication our fans have delivered has been invaluable. That said, we’ve got lots of great news to share! First is that we are proud to announce Elena Siegman as our new Studio Head, leading production and development, and Kendall Deacon Davis, spearheading creative. 

Alongside the new leadership, Cold Iron will be adding some long-requested quality of life updates to Aliens: Fireteam Elite, with the first update coming tomorrow, October 24. We’re committed to providing these updates while we’re hard at work on our next major project. Future updates will include many of the community’s most prominent requests, such as fixes to matchmaking and improvements to everyone’s favorite Synths, Alpha and Beta.

In the meantime, we are in full development on a new title. Building on the success of Aliens: Fireteam Elite, Cold Iron is hard at work making a new experience for fans to sink their teeth into. More updates will be coming as development is further along.”

There’s reason to be optimistic about Cold Iron Studios’ future, as Elena Siegman is a veteran of Bungie, Firewalk Studios, and other studios that know their way around a multiplayer game. Kendall Deacon Davis on the other hand has a long list of writing and creative credits for the likes of Wargaming, DC Comics, Skybound, and Ark: The Animated Series. No word hint yet on what Cold Iron might be working on next, but I would bet on another game based on an existing license with some sort of multiplayer element.

Aliens: Fireteam Elite can be played on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, and Switch.
