40 years ago, the Nostromo disappeared… In 2019, Amanda Ripley will uncover the secrets it left behind — no matter what. #AmandaRipley #ReadPlayWatch #January pic.twitter.com/N5XybNB1Tj

20th Century Fox announced the next project, or possibly projects, in the Alien universe on Saturday by way of a vague and tantalizing social-media post. This next Alien universe release, slated for a “2019” launch, includes a “read, watch, play” promise, suggesting a mixed-media launch whose various parts could comingle.

Its interactive aspects will be paid off, at the very least, by the protagonist already named in the above teaser: Amanda Ripley. This character, the daughter of Sigourney Weaver’s character Ellen Ripley, featured prominently in 2014 video game Alien Isolation. In that game, the younger Ripley was tasked with uncovering mysteries on a Weyland-Yutani craft called the Sevastopol.

The stakes will be higher for the younger Ripley in this year’s release, as the tease includes a promised return to the famed Nostromo, the setting of the very first Alien film. Saturday’s tease suggests that Amanda Ripley will have the first human interaction with anything Nostromo-related in 40 years. (Maybe she will analyze some shards?)
