In an interview with a movie website Vin Diesel has revealed that a sequel
to Starbreeze Studios' Xbox FPS The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher
Bay is already in development.
Speaking about the future of the Riddick franchise, Diesel says, "I always
thought that The Chronicles of Riddick is this intense ball of energy that
hasn't really exploded. There's a sequel to the videogame being made."
Diesel doesn't discuss the new videogame version further, but does mention
that "you'll have to see Riddick go to the Underverse and ultimately, you'll
have to see him go back to Furia" without specifying if this will happen in the
game, a new movie, or an animated feature.
We heard rumours about a sequel to Butcher Bay way back before the game was
even released, and when we quizzed Lars Johansson, the game's producer, about it
back in June he said, "I'm sure Riddick could carry off
Interestingly, Riddick 2 could be an early PS3 and Xbox 2 title. Starbreeze
have actively been recruiting programmers and artists to work on "the next
generation of consoles" with positions available immediately, suggesting that
work is already under way.
We've been in touch with Swedish-based Starbreeze but haven't received any
statement from them.
The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay came from nowhere earlier
this year and surprised everyone with its brutal FPS action and impressive
visuals. It was a little on the short side, but what was there was of high
enough quality to pick up the award for Unsung Hero of the Year at our recent
Golden Joystick awards. Vin himself was involved with the production of the
first game by helping to fund development through his own Tigon games company
and lending his voice, ideas and image to the character of Riddick.
