Escape from Butcher Bay sequel in the works
Actor Vin Diesel, who helms the video game development studio Tigon, announced that a sequel to the Xbox title “The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay” is in the works.

The game is expected to be a direct sequel to Butcher Bay and will most likely not tie in with a future Chronicles of Riddick feature film. Surprisingly, The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay grossed more money than its film counterpart.
