An Alien: Isolation is set to make a return in the form of an animated series, at least according to a rumor from The Observer.

Over a month ago, it was announced that Amanda Ripley’s struggle with xenomorphs would continue with Alien: Blackout. However, it was just rumored that her story may also continue with an R-rated animated series.

What aspect of Amanda Ripley’s story will be shown is unknown at this time. The Alien: Isolation game ended on a cliffhanger, so it seems possible that the animated series could pick up after that and bridge the Isolation and Blackout games more tightly. It could also just be an animated take on Isolation’s basic story.

Either way, we’ll have to wait to see what the animated series is all about–and, to be honest, we’re still waiting for an official confirmation that that series has been greenlit and put into production.

However, if you need your Amanda Ripley/xenomorph fix right now, both the Alien: Blackout mobile game and the first issue of the Aliens: Resistance comic are available now.
