Head of Vin Diesel’s Tigon Studios, Ian Stevens, reckons plenty of those in Hollywood are simply forced into games for financial reasons.
“There’s certainly no shortage of guys that look at games and see them as toys, and meaningless bullshit, and now look at revenue – and for their own survival’s sake have to care, and have to get involved,” said Stevens of the Hollywood community.
“I think a lot of it has changed because we’re making so much more money than they are.”

Vin Diesel’s confirmed that Tigon’s been working on an MMO, Barca BC, for the past three years, Destructoid reports.
“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,” Diesel said at a press conference this week.
“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.”
There’s more through there, including an estimate that we’re not going to see the game for another four years.

For starters, Dark Athena is going to give you 11 hours of brand new gameplay whilst the remade Escape from Butch Bay will offer over nine.
There are six multiplayer modes in total with three traditional gametypes Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag and three new ones called , Pitch Black and Arena.
Butcher Bay Riot consists of 12 players split up into teams of Guards, Prisoners and Mercenaries all fighting over one powercell that must be taken to the opposing team’s base for points.
Pitch Black lets you play as one of five Mercenaries hunting down Riddick. When you kill Riddick you become him. Sounds easy? To make it harder, all levels are sheathed in darkness, with only weapons’ flashlights to see by.
Arena is a simple 1 on 1 or 2 on 2 affair that gives you full access to every weapon.
Game’s out next month. We can’t wait.

Seriously, Mr Atari. It’s December 22. Why is this a good time to release new screens of Assault on Dark Athena?
Because we’re here to write about them, clearly. Look at them. It’s better than wrapping presents.

Vin Diesel’s Tigon Studios sees upcoming Riddick title Assault on Dark Athena as an “episodic expansion”, and has confirmed that work on a true sequel to Escape from Butcher Bay is now underway.
Speaking to Eurogamer at Atari Live in London, head of production Ian Stevens said: “We’ve really tried to maintain that core experience [of the original] and embellish it for Assault on Dark Athena, which we see very much as an episodic expansion of Escape From Butcher Bay.
“We’re not calling it a sequel; we’ve got a sequel in mind that’s a couple of years out if you guys want it, and you like this and you tell us you want more.”
