The muddled story of The Chronicles of Riddick game is a confusing tale of publisher swaps and development issues, but the game is in a better place now and has turned into a much grander vision. Originally, the game was planned to be a simple next-gen remake of The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay. According to Starbreeze lead designer Ian Stevens, the decision to do a remake was because Escape from Butcher Bay is not backwards compatible with the Xbox 360, unfortunately, (and we agree that more people should experience this critically acclaimed cult hit)."
