Yeah it's possible. You just need to buy the rights for the game and its license. Grin

But seriously, AvP2 is in a similar situation to that of Goldeneye 007. Fox owns the AvP license. Sierra (now activision owned) has a stake in AvP2 with publishing it. And now Sega and Rebellion are involved with the AvP license. It would make sense for both Fox and Sierra to come to a mutual agreement to make more money by re-releasing it on steam, but who knows. It might be considered a forgotten game not worth bringing back by the execs.

It definitely won't go open source though. I don't think Fox releases anything for free.

Lucifer it is not just avp2 copyrights.It is copyright of all alien,predator and avp franshire,I really dont think that GOG have money for that,even if they have I am almost 100% sure they wont buy(game is dieing and every day there is less and less payers) it and Fox wont sell it.Maybe it is better to stay like this.Instead of this community should start working on new patches and master servers,you already recruit other players,who knows maybe avp2 get new chance.

He is right... AVP/Alien/Predator Copyrights etc the whole thing is in a sort of 'LIMBO' state with AVP2...

AVP2 just needs some serious advertising again to get more players... but the main problem is... the game is 13 years old Shocked

And the clock is ticking.... avp2 has some issues on windows 8! and in 2015 Windows 10 will be released.

avp2 was not meant to work on XP/Vista/7/8 we just got lucky lol.

As for the modders/mappers/skinners? 90% of them have bolted... not many of us left.

Windows 10 in 2015?And I still have XP  Smiley .AvP2 survived november 2008 it will survive new windows.Game was let to die and "big brains" of this community transfer it from other world to this one.We still dont know how much windows 10 is gonna be different from windows 8.1 .
As for advertising it is possible.
Lucifer is doing great job finding players on game ranger,but.
There is always but,90% of those players install everything,find game,join game,same second they enter some "good guy" bang them or they become victim of spamming mines.And there you go,5 min of playing,0 frags and 20 deaths,they get angry and rage quit and uninstall game!!!!As for patches,master servers,adding death counter in score tab,adding mixed specie deathmatch(like in avp2010) in multiplayer game type and finding solution for ghost shots(lag,ping) would make game better.
