I guess anything they would release would come with clause stating you can not make a profit from their original work?
I love the idea, new levels for alien breed on the Amiga would be awesome, I think they would rather protect their history to be honest!
Keep in mind the source code is not the artwork or the IP. If, for instance, one wanted to create an engine port of the game, the original game files would still be required. This makes it perfectly possible to release the source of the original game under a permissive license without having others using the IP illegally.
