Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Director Wants to do RoboCop, Doom Games

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon creative director Dean Evans would like a go at making games based around Doom and RoboCop.

The Doom angle comes from Hobo with a Shotgun director Jason Eisener, who was interviewed by Game Informer recently. Eisener provided Evans with assistance during the development of Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon.

"[Evans and I] became really good friends out of this," said Eisener. "He came down for five days to Dartmouth and spent New Year's with us. It was freezing cold here, so we just stayed in a basement playing video games for like five days straight.

"We were just constantly riffing off video game ideas and have constantly been talking 'til now that we want to do something together and really punch something out. I can't really say what it is we're talking about yet. But we definitely have some really fun ideas of what we want to do together. I know though, we really want to do Doom.

"I want to make a Doom movie, and Dean wants to make a new Doom video game. We would love to just join those two forces together someday."

The RoboCop connection, meanwhile, comes via an interview with Evans himself.

"I've told [Michael Biehn, who played Corporal Hicks in the Aliens movie and Aliens: Colonial Marines, as well as Rex Colt in Blood Dragon] about how I want to purchase the RoboCop license at some time," he observed. "I've spoken to him about a number of different things.

"There's a lot of things I'd really like to do. In terms of the product catalogue at Ubisoft, a sequel is not in discussion at all. Obviously I would love to do something and continue things, but it's not my decision whatsoever."

I don’t know about you, but given the choice I’d pick Evans to do a RoboCop game over everything else.

Beyond this, Michael Biehn has also outlined his experience working on Aliens: Colonial Marines, something he describes as “soulless.”

"The only other gaming experience that I had was I did a voice in the Aliens game that they made," he said. "That wasn't fun at all. I just didn't really have any fun.

"It seemed kind of passionless. I think in movies, television, and the gaming world, you get some people that are really, really passionate, and some people that are just going through the paces. They think that because they have a brand name they're going to get a hit game or hit movie out of it. That certainly was the situation on [Aliens: Colonial Marines]."

They won't get the license for Robocop, it's being rebooted and the new movie should be out soon. It should be big!

I would buy a Robocop game, but only if it is based on the original!

Imagine if even half the passion that was present for Blood Dragon was put into Colonial Marines. We might have had a game that didn't shit all over the IP. Wouldn't that have been something?

Yes yes and yes!! First, the Robocop franchise has massive potential for a next gen game and I'd trust these guys to do it. Second, we need another doom game! Now! Can't believe there hasn't been one this gen! for the movie it'd be quite hard to undo the damage that the rock version has done, if its gonna be done I want hordes of monsters, the armageddon of the earth and no pussy 12a rated film that's worse than a generic zombie movie. Third, CM DID have no story whatsoever, can't believe biehn put his name to it! Blood dragon on the other hand was the best arcade title since bf1943

Rebooted Robocop looks super lame, he looks like a cosplay version of crysis's nanosuit

@10 I agree and it doesn`t help that the movie will be PG-13 .

To the Topic : I love the idea of a Robocop Game and also I would love to see a new doom on the next-gen consoles

I want a good Robocop game or a release of the Arcade one on XBLA.

Alright that's it, I formally request Robocop vs Terminator to be given an HD polish and released on Xbox Live Arcade!

Anyways, passion...that's one thing you would think anyone would realize is essential for a good game. You don't just crank it out of an assembly line, you have to have that passion, that fire in your heart to make it a labor of love.

I would live more Doom. But like the original version, with improved graphics. Give me 100 levels whilst you're at it too. Doom 3 never really did it for me.

PLEASE CONSIDER MAKING A VINTAGE 80's action G.I.Joe video game, the cartoon trailer reminded me so much of my favorite classic and thought why doesn't anyone make a good Joe game,

The new Robocop movie will bomb. The people old enough to remember the original appear unimpressed (myself included) so unless the trailer knocks it out of the park to entice the uninitiated and/or sell to us 80s kids then no-one will watch it.

I'd be all over a new Robocop game if it had Peter Weller involved.

@6 - There's nothing wrong with the Doom movie. Sure it wasn't the best it could have been, but it wasn't bad. It's all left to opinions of course, and mine is that it was a good movie.

would love to see a Robocop game as long as it was based on the old Robocop and not the new movie that is coming out especially after hearing about some of the details on the reboot.

I'd buy a new Robocop game but only if it was based on the original and brought back Peter Weller and Kurtwood Smith.

The only Robocop game I ever played/owned was the NES version that I have in a cupboard upstairs. Got past the Clarence Boddicker fight, got killed on the second ED-209 confrontation, still can't get past it.

Remake of the Robocop VS Terminator Sega Genesis version please. It would be a great addition to the arcade.

I likely wouldn't even watch another Doom movie, The Rock one was horrible. Video games typically translate poorly to film.
