Riddick Set for April Release
The publisher has also confirmed the existence of a demo, which will be available to console enthusiasts in March.
Assault on Dark Athena was initially going to be published by the merged Activision Blizzard group, as the game’s predecessor – Butcher’s Bay – was released by its majority shareholder Vivendi Games.
Swedish developers Starbreeze Studios then saw the fate of the sequel thrown into doubt as Activision Blizzard divested the title along with several others following the particulars of its merger.
Yet Atari saw the potential of the franchise and snapped up a publishing deal, with the game featuring an all-new campaign as well as a ‘remastered’ hi-def edition of Butcher’s Bay.
