This list is for anyone who wants to know the order of each piece of media. The Alien Versus Predator (AVP) movies are no longer canon. This list does not include the canon comics, as it is hard to find comics that remain as canon ever since Ridley Scott changed it (like Disney did with Star Wars). This list is the best so far for continuity. The series was almost rebooted with a cancelled sequel that would have changed everything after Aliens (film). A theory later emerged that the Blade Runner series (including Blade Runner, Soldier, and Blade Runner 2049) is in the same universe as the Alien series. Since then, Ridley Scott has confirmed this theory and thus it is now part of the timeline.
