Status Update - The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark AthenaSaturday June 7, 2008
Seemingly forever ago, Vivendi and developer Starbreeze announced The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, a next-gen remake of their cult hit Xbox game, The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay. But after that announcement, the game seemingly dropped off of the radar. The general consensus among gamers was that it had been quietly cancelled. I can tell you today, happily, that it is still coming along and seems to be closer to release than you'd think. I contacted Starbreeze CEO Johan Kristiansson through e-mail, and he informed me that
"We are certianly working on it, and we are almost done actually and the game looks great. We are just waiting for the marketing campaign to get started now."
He didn't give me a time frame for release, but it seems like it will hopefully be out sooner rather than later. The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena includes the full single-player campaign from Escape from Butcher Bay along with a brand new single-player campaign as well as brand new multiplayer modes. It is coming out for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 sometime this year. See the original announcement here.

Nice, was a big fan of the original which had exceptional visuals for its time. Can't wait to play this.

Again, just like Crysis: Warhead, it looks like a mock up. At least, I would hope that's not official box art... that's hideous and won't get much PoP sales.

Wow, that does look awesome. :thumbsup:

I just read today that they're changed the focus of the game from being a Remake + New bonus content to being a whole new game + a remake as bonus content.
