I'm saying that AvP is a different universe from the Alien movies. We know for a fact that Prometheus is canon with the alien movies, and if it contradicts AvP, then it's just further evidence.
You are right in saying that the Alien, Predator and AVP universes are three universes. That much is definitely true but what I am saying is that one universe, the AvP universe emcomposes the Alien and Predator films, and the events of all six films have happened. What's different is how Weyland-Yutani was founded, and the fact that Aliens and Predators are in the same universe fighting each other and that the AvP universe has more events involving the two species than the Alien and Predator universes.
However, Prometheus doesn't really knock AvP out of canon-- it just simply ignores them. Twentieth Century Fox hasn't stated that the AvP films were retconned out of canon or continuity and the expanded universe material published from 2009 on up still suggest that the Alien and Predator films are still linked to the AVP films and a still a part of the AVP Universe. Even events post 2179 A.D. (which is when ALIENS and Alien 3 is set) still make mention of the events of the Nostromo, LV-426 and Fury 161.
Really, what I am saying is that with the Alien/Predator/AVP films and universe... You can pick which of the three you want to follow. Fox probably might have intended the continuities and the canon to be pretty flexible and offers three choices for whoever wants to follow which of the three universes they want.
If you want to follow strictly Alien continuity, then disregard Predator, Predator 2 and AvP, and count only Prometheus.
If you want to follow strictly Predator continuity, then disregard Predator 2, AvP, AvP-R, and the Alien films. Count only Predator and PREDATORS.
If you want to follow Alien vs Predator continuity, then disregard PREDATORS and Prometheus. Count Predator, Predator 2, AvP, AvP-R, the Alien films and the overall encomposing EU which ties the two franchises together.
Honestly though, this thread would have run out of stuff to stay on topic with quick, not because it's a lame thread or anything against you Rakai, but because at this point we've got literally [b]nothing[/i] official to go on. It's all heresay going off of Reddit posts from people who claim to be devs. Until Gearbox, SEGA or TimeGate say anything official, we can't really discuss more beyond speculation.
At least you're sincere about it.
Yeah, I mean it's all hard to say if any of that information is true because these are people hiding behind the guise of anonymity and using blogs and social networking sites to say different reasons why the game had failed. So yeah.. Definitely a point there.
