From my understanding, interviews and such, the creative team went to a lot of trouble, with Fox's blessing, to write a story that would take place between 'Aliens' and 'Alien 3'; a story that would be, for all intents and purposes, considered canon.


Gearbox, along with Sega, worked closely with 20th Century Fox and Ridley Scott when designing the game so yea it's canon.
