New Alien Breed title confirmed
Posted in In Development by Bonz at 30/08/08 8:57pm CEST

According to this SPOnG article from 27-08-2008 Martyn 'Spadge' Brown has confirmed that Team17 are working on a new Alien Breed title.
Spadge: "[...] we're doing it with a budget far in excess of anything that has been spent anywhere on a digital title to date."

Digital, as in digital distribution, makes the next-gen consoles' online services PSN and XBLA come to my mind: Spadge previously hinted that there were two XBLA titles and one PSN title in developement and being "pencilled in" respectively.
This makes one wonder if there is a chance for a PC version. Spadge did not confirm or deny the platforms or delivery methods however.

The guys at SPOnG also wildly speculated that Team17 may not only be developing the title, but also publish it themselves, something which Team17 haven't done in a long time.

Spadge furthermore gave some insight in future planning regarding their intellectual property:
"We're looking to take the studio in different directions. For a start, the days of over-reliance on a sole IP are over".
"We're certainly looking to go back to multiple, high quality IPs."
