New Riddick game in the works

Vin Diesel says the team behind Escape from Butcher Bay has been reassembled to create a third installment in the series.

202 Comments

A new Chronicles of Riddick game is in development, actor Vin Diesel revealed in a new interview with ScreenCrush (via Eurogamer). The untitled new game is in development by Starbreeze Studios team members who worked on 2004's Escape from Butcher Bay.

No Caption Provided

"My diehard gamers want [Tigon Studios] to deliver the third chapter in the Riddick game," Diesel said. "And we just over the past couple of months, just this year, reassembled that team from Starbreeze that brought Escape from Butcher Bay to create the third game."

No details regarding platforms or a release date were mentioned. It does not appear that the new game will tie in with Riddick, which released in theaters last week.

The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay was released in 2004 for the original Xbox and PC. Sequel Assault on Dark Athena launched in 2009 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

@xolivierx Did you play Escape from Butcher Bay or are you just talking out of your ass? The game was amazing and recieved mostly favorable reviews. Earning a 90% on metacritic. The sequel wasn't that great but if I recall correctly it was done by a different team. So no, we don't all know the game is going to suck, in fact many have very high hopes for it.

@devild0ogwhite The second game was weaker but IMO still above the majority of modern shooters.

I've played both escape from butcher bay and assault on dark athena and I think both are pretty solid games

wouldn't mind a game IF it lives up to its predecessors

Will this be one of those extremely rare, good videogames based on a movie?

Though can it be classified as such if the main character is the only connection to the movie and rest is brand new?

@northArrow @malokevi "movie games are always awesome" : not serious

"lets hope they put as much work into this one as the Xbox iteration" : serious

Movie games : typically not good

Riddick on Xbox: good.

This is fantastic news! Both Escape from Butcher Bay and Assault on Dark Athena were great games and some may say that they were even a better story than the movies themselves.

I am looking forward to playing a third Riddick game and I'm happy to hear it will be made by the same developer.

@Darkhol0w Both games give a good back story to the character and great lead in to Pitch Black.

Butcher's Bay and Dark Athena were great. But I might be biased. Will pick this one up as well.

@Riddick123 Not biased at all, it is arguably the ONLY good licensed game.

@SirNormanislost There was a version that had them bundled (xbox?) but they were two separate PC games to start with.

This is exactly what I wanted from a new Riddick movie. A new Riddick game. This is insanely good news.

Butcher Bay and Dark Athena both have such a hopeless, purgatory-esque tone that is amazing to me. The Darkness too.

It would be great if they'd rerelease Escape from Butcher Bay. I know they've included a reworked version with Assault on Dark Athena, but some say the original version was better. It'd be great to have the option to get both the original versions of the Riddick games.

Escape from Butcher's Bay was great and Starbreeze Studios did Payday 2 and Syndicate which were alright.

Could be a good game.

@dmastor @armyown From my understanding anyone raised on the N64 liked the game kinda like Golden Eye and all that.

No. Butcher Bay was the best looking game of it's time. It was the first game on console to use "bump mapping", and the gameplay was the best use of first person combat I think to date. It is unlikely that the next game will be a ground breaking as the first one, but if they just refine everything they have done, while pushing and adding new stuff (I know, it's easy to say), I think the game will be great!

Escape from Butcher Bay was actually a really good game and one of the best to come out for xbox. I got the Dark Athena with the hd remake of Butcher Bay, and the second game was meh compared to the first, but still good imo. I'm excited to see another riddick being made. I think these are the most overlooked video games that are adapted from a movie, and cant wait to see the third!
