That Riddick Game Diesel Teased? An iOS Movie Tie-In

By Nathan Grayson on September 19th, 2013.

Update: I sought clarification from Gaming Corps about Vin Diesel’s comment, further games in the Riddick series, and whether or not PC will be involved, and CEO Nicklas Dunham replied with the following: “At the moment we can only disclose that the iOS version is just the beginning.” So there’s more to come, but it’s still far too early to determine the exact form it will take.

Original: That’s it, Vin Diesel. I have had it with your coy, ultimately empty promises and suspiciously shiny head. Next time I see you, we’re going to throw down. You will win, because a) you have the musculature of a mythological Greek titan and b) are the Iron Giant, but still. Afterward, you will absolutely, positively – for some reason – regret getting me all excited about the prospect of a new Chronicles of Riddick game. Because really? All that ballyhooing and getting the old Starbreeze band back together for a quick-and-dirty mobile movie tie-in? I’m sitting here, fists clinched, just shuddering right now, Vin. And it’s only mostly from fear.

Diesel Powered: New Chronicles Of Riddick, Maybe MMO?

By John Walker on September 10th, 2013.

I’ve not seen the third Riddick movie yet, but oh boy do I plan to. Obviously Pitch Black is a great action movie – how could anyone question a film with the opening line, “They say most of your brain shuts down in cryo-sleep. All but the primitive side, the animal side. No wonder I’m still awake,”? But then comes The Chronicles Of Riddick – a film that’s so ludicrously under-appreciated. Yes, it’s unintelligible madness from beginning to end, but it’s also a true epic, in a way that even the biggest, most expensive films just aren’t any more. And Judi Dench has never been better miscast in her career. Bloated, nonsensical, and utterly glorious, today I laud this hated film before you. And then get around to mentioning that hideously, I’ve never played Escape From Butcher Bay. I’ll put that right soon enough, especially with the news that Vin Diesel says he’s pulled the creative team back together for another title.

Elephant In The Room: Vin Diesel’s “Dream” MMO

By Jim Rossignol on March 13th, 2009.


Destructoid report that Vin Diesel’s Tigon Studios has been working on an MMO, Barca BC, set during the Punic wars. Diesel had this to say about the notion of a “dream” game: “My dream game is something we’ve been working on in-house. We haven’t talked about it much because we’ve been mulling over how to do it just right. My dream game is a game that we’re developing called Barca BC… The reason why it’s my dream game is because it is an MMO and — remember you said funds were not an issue in this scenario, this is obviously a hugely expensive game — but, it’s a massively multiplayer online game where you create an avatar that lives in the reality of Hannibal Barca, the Punic Wars and life 200 BC.”

The game has apparently been in development for several years, and apparently won’t be seen for several more.

What’s your dream MMO, readers?
