The lights are on
The developer behind the not-yet-released Rambo: The Video Game, has acquired another notable '80s film franchise with Terminators, and it plans on making a video game.
Reef is not announcing a video game, but rather announcing that it now has the rights to make Terminator video games. The license appears to only cover games based on the films The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day, as opposed to a video game based on the Terminator universe which are what most Terminator video games past have been based.
Reef's collection of released games is small. It created the Wii port of the game Rogue Trooper, and a Rambo video game is on the way.
Our TakeThere certainly could be cool video games based on The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Reef has yet to prove itself as a noteworthy developer, so I don't know if it is the studio to do it, but I admire anyone willing to try.

Nice! I've been looking for the next COD. This looks like it could be it!
If anything, this will be fantastically awful.
I'll be back.
So excited for that Rambo game, when is it releasing by the way? I bet a pre-order bonus will be Rambo's headband.
Yikes. Not at all encouraging. The Rambo game looks pretty terrible.
There certainly could be good Terminator games. I mean it would be pretty cool to have an open world Terminator game set after the war where the player commands a squad of resistance fighters battling Skynet. You could also set a strategy game in the same time frame very easily.
The problem is no one has bothered to sit down and make a proper Terminator game. They are always short term cash grabs. Perhaps this will be different, but I doubt it.
Now I know why I've never heard of this publisher.
