The official title of the sequel to Prometheus has been revealed by 20th Century Fox! The second chapter in the Alien prequel trilogy that began with Prometheus is officially titled Alien Covenant:
“Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS — and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the ‘synthetic’ David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.”
Let’s hope we will learn even more about the Engineers in this sequel!
