You never know when a game might get accidentally teased.

Do you see it?  Look closely, closely.  

Creative Assembly (the British developers best known for their Total War series of games) is the latest in a long line of videogame makers to discover that the best detectives in the world are the combined eagle-eyes of gamers on the internet.  

The first image had appeared on the studio's website. While the image is now-redacted, it was spotted on an employee's PC monitor.  In the image you can see a crash test dummy with a Nostromo (the ship from the original Alien movie) logo on its t-shirt.  That combined with the environment the dummy is walking through has all signs pointing to a licensed Alien tie-in game.

Still further, while Creative Assembly has now changed their Twitter background, again a leaked image was revealed accidentally thanks to leaving the wrong thing up on their monitor.

This time it is a still from the original movie showing off the ship's cryo-tubes, which could be used as a visual reference for constructing digital art assets.  With GDC, E3, and the next-generation consoles all right around the corner, we could be getting a reveal soon.

If the backlash from Colonial Marines hasn't buried anything connected with the license that is.
