Prepare for first blood, as Rambo the video game is set to make its way to consoles following the acquisition of the rights from film company StudioCanal by UK-based publisher Reef Entertainment, MCV reports. Fending off stiff competition, the deal gives Reef license to develop several titles based upon the action-packed Syslvester Stallone movies.
“I am a big fan of Sylvester Stallone movies, and when we had the opportunity to secure the video game rights from StudioCanal for the Rambo franchise, we had to grab it with both hands,” said Reef Entertainment CEO Peter Rezon. “With the success of the most recent Rambo film, and an international appetite for action movies with Expendables 2 scheduled for release next summer, we felt now was a good time to do something special with this licence.”
“We have big ambitions for Reef and the Rambo IP is the first step in establishing us as a worldwide player.” Reef Entertainment's Commercial Director, Craig Lewis added. “Rambo will be a triple-A title on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC and will capture the gritty atmosphere and full-on action which made the Rambo movies so successful.”
