Many of you will have been flocking to cinemas over the last few days to witness the return of Riddick to the big screen, after 9 years away.

Well, we thought it fitting that we let you know that your wait for a third Riddick game might soon be over…

In a recent interview with Screencrush, Vin Diesel discussed the release in theatres of his new film, Riddick. He then went on to say that earlier this year, due to the demand from “die-hard gamers”, he had reassembled the team behind Escape from Butcher Bay at Starbreeze for a third Riddick game.

In another interview in July, Diesel again discussed the possibility of a new game. In this interview with IGN he confirmed that the Starbreeze studio has been put back together with the intent of producing a new game. He talks about how deeper storylines left over from The Chronicles of Riddick were channelled into video games to “flesh out the mythology even more". Finally, Diesel hints at what we might be able to expect from a third Riddick game.

"There's this huge concept which is more of a MMO game that would be centred around people being able to play mercs and it's basically the merc trade. There's a very cool game concept behind that."

The last time we saw Riddick in Assault on Dark Athena, it all felt rather more cumbersome than his earlier game. Let’s hope a third game can bring something new to the franchise.

Have you played the Riddick games before? Are you looking forward to a third?

This new Riddick movie was okay, but I really wanted Riddick to stay with the Necromongers. I wanted him to lead them to their promised land. Anyway, a third game would be welcome :)

Yeah the movie seemed to me more like a hack and slash game with Riddick simply going about killing anything that moved...

I remember Escape From Butcher Bay... Music was so good and the gameplay while not polished wasn't exactly half bad... So that is a big yes from me as well...
