Riddick by Xmas?

Vin Diesel has dropped strong hints in a recent interview with Coming Soon.net that the PS2 version of The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay may be arriving before Christmas.

Escape From Butcher Bay has always been on the way to the PC but Diesel appeared to be more than a little miffed that the game was originally an Xbox exclusive. “That’s a question I have,” said Diesel, no doubt enigmatically, before confirming the he is, “Trying to get the PS2 game [into shops] by Christmas, to release with the Chronicles of Riddick DVD.”

Diesel is no gaming novice and has long enjoyed a reputation as an avid gamer, recently forming his own videogame company Tigon Studios. Hopefully he’ll have the ‘muscle’ to make this happen (just don’t tell him he looks a bit like Mr. Potato head…)
