Is it too late for someone to come up with a cooler name than "Predalien" for the Alien/Predator hybrid that made its debut in 2007's Alien Vs. Predator: Requiem? Gamespot interviewed Tim Jones, AVP project lead for Sega/Rebellion's new first-person shooter, and he confirmed that the monster mash-up would make an appearance in the game.

"I can confirm that the Predalien will feature in the game, and there will be other alien types too, including a couple of things that have never been seen before in the Aliens or Predator universe," Jones states. I'm not sure fans are clamoring for more of the Predalien, but, if the character turns out to be playable, that would probably get folks more excited.

Story details are still under wraps, but Jones reveals that the game takes place thirty years after the events of Alien 3. Alien Vs. Predator is scheduled for release on March 31, 2010 for PC, Playstation 3, and X-Box 360.
