The Chronicles Of Riddick: Assault On Dark Athena will now miss planned 2007 date.

A Sierra Entertainment spokesperson has confirmed to Pro-G that The Chronicles Of Riddick: Assault On Dark Athena, the re-invention of the acclaimed PC and Xbox FPS Escape from Butcher Bay, is now scheduled to ship in 2008. No reason for the delay was given.

Back in May when the title was first announced Sierra revealed that Starbreeze Studios is handling development and would be sprucing the title up with enhanced visuals, a new story chapter and online multiplayer.

Never seen Chronicles of Riddick or played a game, but I hear they're good.

Bet with disolitude: Left4Dead will have a higher Metacritic rating than Project Origin, 3 months after the second game's release.  (hasn't been 3 months but it looks like I won :-p )

hmmm i get it.. big title - "Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena"

That would of been the biggest title of the holiday!!

I think the next runner up is - "Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation", another big title...

Nintendo must be paying a fortune to get all these games held back!!

The movie was crap, the game was amazing.

My wife and I love the movie. Never tried the game

And they're all on Xbox 360 or PS3! Hooray for relying on third parties!



Ubuntu. Linux for human beings.

If you are interested in trying Ubuntu or Linux in general, PM me and I will answer your questions and help you install it if you wish.

I wonder if some of these delays are intentional in order to avoid this very crowded holiday software lineup.



Maybe they're pushing them back because they don't want to compete with Halo 3, Mass Effect, BioShock etc...

The movie was Conan in Space. Whether that's good or not depends entirely on your tastes. ;)

 

The game was pretty fun, but I remember beating it in a single day. If you measure the value of a game by how many hours of enjoyment you get, it didn't do too well, but it was certainly worth a playthrough.
