The lights are on
Vin Diesel recently did an interview with ScreenCrush, where he let some news slip about a new Riddick game that's in development.
"My diehard gamers want Tigon to deliver the third chapter in the Riddick game," Diesel tells ScreenCrush. "We, just of the past couple of months, just this year, reassembled that team from Starbreeze that brought Escape from Butcher Bay to create the third game."
Unfortunately, Diesel didn't divulge any further on platforms, release window, or even what we'll encounter in the game.
Starbreeze Studios worked on Escape from Butcher Bay and Assault on Dark Athena, but as Diesel said, it's the Butcher Bay team working on the new project.

Our TakeIf the gamers plead enough, sometimes things come together wonderfully. I'm glad they're bringing back the team that worked on Butcher Bay, as that was one of the stronger releases in that series. Time will tell what's in store, but I'll confess it. I love when celebrities spill the beans early.

YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!! Whoops....sorry my inner fangirl came out. Carry on.
This is gonna be epic, Riddick is back. With some of the most fast and furious FPS melee combat ever in the first games, cant wait to see this next one. Sleeper hit on the way i think.
Hell yeah!!!!!!! I loved Escape from Butcher Bay especially when it was redone in HD and included Dark Athena.. This is excellent news, can't wait to see this on a next-gen console.
Cool,these games are fun.
Cool beans, I like the movies, but never got a chance to play the games.
Found the video I was talking about in my previous post. He's says something about it possibly being an mmo (totally paraphrasing)...
*** yes! Amazing series (new movie included *** awesome) I can't wait for this and starbreeze hasn't disappointed me yet
Starbreeze's Escape from Butcher Bay was amazing when it first came out, and I thoroughly enjoyed Dark Athena, so I for one am completely jacked for a third installment.
