The Halcyon Co., which owns the rights to the "Terminator" franchise, is forming its own gaming subsidiary and making a game adaptation of the company's upcoming film "Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins" its first release.
The game, which will be available on all formats, including next-generation consoles, PC and mobile, is expected to hit the marketplace at the same time as the film, which is slated for release in summer 2009.
"Terminator" will not be the only franchise in the Halcyon Games stable. Halcyon created a splash this year when it secured first-look rights to the works for famed science fiction writer Philip K. Dick. The Halcyon executives said they are looking at bringing out titles based on the Dick books beginning in 2010. In addition, Halcyon Games also will eventually look at creating its own original IP.
