An interview with Randy appears in this month's issue of Game Informer! Head to the nearest news stand to read Randy's responses to questions about Hell's Highway and Aliens, our two upcoming titles!
I've just received some unfortunate news from the Colonel. His message is as follows:
" It is with great sadness to announce that Lieutenant Colonel Ron Speirs, US Army (Ret.), passed away this past week. As I was told it was unexpected. You may remember that Speirs was portrayed in the HBO Band of Brothers series. Speirs was a platoon leader in D Co, 506th PIR and later commanded E Co during the Battle of the Bulge. He also commanded a rifle company in the Korean War and eventually retired as a Lieutenant Colonel.
Another member of the Greatest Generation has passed his final muster. May he rest in peace.
CURRAHEE! HOOAH! "
