[..] Chris Faylor, the Community Manager for developer Gearbox Software,
told us that all previous expanded universe material (including the novels, the comics, and all the Alien vs Predator stuff) has been thrown out.
[..] We also chatted with Matt Powers, a Senior Producer on the game for SEGA, about the Wii U version of the game. Powers initially referred to the game as “the Wii U port” and Faylor rushed back over to scold him, telling us: “I hate that word. The Wii U version is not a port. Remove it from your vocabulary.”
