Atari has announced that it will be publishing a FPS title called The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena in 2009. The game will hit the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in Spring of 2009. The game was previously announced as a remake of the first Riddick title called Escape from Butcher Bay.

However, Atari is now saying that the game has a new full-length campaign that will make it an all-original title. Also featured will be online multiplayer combat, a first for a Riddick title. I never played the first Riddick game, but I liked the movies despite Vin Diesel.
"The Riddick IP offers a rich universe from which to develop no-holds barred games, and we've believed that since the days of the Pitch Black film," said Bill Kispert, Vice President and General Manager, Interactive, Universal Pictures Digital Platforms Group. "Assault on Dark Athena extends the franchise fiction; adds to the mythology with new storylines, characters and locations while remaining true to the original material; and gives fans an experience they haven't seen before. As we introduce this new Riddick chapter, we are also excited to welcome Atari to the Riddick family."
