Yikes....that's the 23rd century! Gaaaahhhhh!!!!
I wonder if a correction was made in the recent console releases of AvP? I would need to play the game again to see if such a time is given.

The AvP game from 1999 appears to be set in 2145.

I was looking for them a while ago because I wanted to compare Trek and Alien visions of the future
I would actually find it hard to choose between being a xenobiologist in the Alien future - or a Starfleet officer in Trek

Supposedly, the upcoming Colonial Marines game will be 'canon' with the four Alien movies and (at this point I would say most likely) Prometheus.

When I spoke with Randy Pitchford, Gearbox CEO and major Aliens franchise fan, it wasn’t long before he landed the first dropship of awesome in my lap: He told me that the upcoming FPS, Aliens: Colonial Marines (A:CM), is a continuation of the first three Aliens films. It takes place shortly after the events of Aliens and Alien 3, and it’s fabulously and officially 20th Century Fox-approved canon.

One, the Sega-published shooter has been inducted into the “official canon” of the Alien universe by 20th Century Fox. Chris Faylor, the Community Manager for developer Gearbox Software, told us that all previous expanded universe material (including the novels, the comics, and all the Alien vs Predator stuff) has been thrown out. The only productions currently considered canon are the first four films (yes, even Alien 3), Aliens: Colonial Marines, and maybe Ridley Scott’s Prometheus (since there’s still the possibility it’s not a prequel).

martok,

Have you seen the deleted scene that takes place in 2023?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpYUW0ekPSA

It takes place about 50 years before the holo message that the almost 80 year old Weyland records for the crew of the Prometheus. I think that holo message mentions that the voyage of the Prometheus is set to take place 20 years after the holo message is being recorded (2073), making the events in Prometheus happening in 2093. Just more confirmation for your dating. Happy Father's Day.
