I think it's pretty obvious they could never decide what to do with the game. I read a preview I think two years ago where they were saying it was going to be similar to Borderlands in the Aliens universe sans loot. And that the focus would be purely coop and character progression. But the previews over the last year have been all L4D-esque. I'm hoping some portion of the game turns out well, but I'll be waiting for more reviews before I make a purchase now.
