Vin Diesel has reassembled his Tigon Studios in order to create the third Riddick game.
“There’s this huge concept [behind the game] which is more of a MMO game that would be centered around people being able to play mercs and it’s basically the merc trade. There’s a very cool game concept behind that. So we got our guys in Sweden that were part of Starbreeze and we’re pulling them back together to make the next Riddick game that we’re really excited about.”
In addition, the actor said that the team made the two prior Riddick games as a way to “flesh out the mythology more,” without having to spend “tens of millions of dollars” by creating it through films.
“So it was kind of us being resourceful in some ways and using a less costly medium, the video game and the animatics and the cinematics in the video game, to, you know, expand the universe,” he added.
Incidentally, the latest Riddick film is now in theaters and has brought in over $18.7 Million last weekend.
