Fictional action hero John Rambo hasn't had his own video game since 1989's Rambo III, but no man, no law, and no war can stop the gun-toter from fighting back onto the scene.

Rambo is getting a new video game.
Rambo is getting a new video game.

According to MCV, Reef Entertainment has inked a deal with film company StudioCanal to develop a new Rambo game for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

The website is reporting that Reef outbid other offers to secure the rights to make multiple games based on the Sylvester Stallone-led movies.

Concrete details about the first new Rambo game are not available. However, Reef creative director Craig Lewis told the website that the new title will be of "triple-A" quality and will "capture the gritty atmosphere and full-on action which made the Rambo movies so successful."

The movies turning to games era has ended with the gold age of Snes and PS1. Nowadays they just dont do it right, look at the last Terminator game for example. This will be something like mercenaries, call of duty and just cause stuff mixed all in one?

As a Rambo fan, I never really like the games, only the movies. Often movie based property that got turn into a game is never a good thing unless if the ppl making the game put some hard works into it.

I hope this turns out like Golden Eye 64 or Chronicles of Riddick Escape from Butchers Bay, the only two games that surpass their movie counterpart.

I hope it continues the 80's Rambo and not the older Rambo. Or update it and make him younger and send him after Al Queda.

I love the films especially First Blood that's such a classic but it's just like with Hollywood making games to film and ruining them, I hate when it's the other way around aswell. I hope they don't ruin the Rambo name at all but they probably will.

As long as it has the NES version included as an extra, I'll be happy. The remake is probably gunna be a trainwreck.

@AloeVera: And you don't live your life as a military operative. Why the hell would you want to play a videogame as one? You should only play games that reflect what you are in real life, so stick to Super Virgin Nerd 3.

FPS? Please no. A TPS will be much better for capturing the Rambo experience.

You don't have to aim to kill! Bullets will always miss Rambo! One man Army! By the way, Rambo First Blood was a novel before a movie.

As long as its now based on "Son of Rambow" then this Rambo game should be fantastic.

This could be interesting. I've only played two Rambo games, the first was Rambo First Blood Part 2 on the Commodore 64, and the other was Rambo III on the Sega Mega Drive.

I would be excited - Rebellion. Which just MIGHT be selected to develop this game. I fear for Rambo, even if he has little fear for himself.
