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.”
