Reef Entertainment Tackles Rambo Video Game; Due 2012

UK Publisher Reef Entertainment have secured the rights to producing a Rambo video game. Reef struck the deal with StudioCanal in the face of competition from other publishers to bring John Rambo to the modern age of gaming.

Reef Entertainment will be allowed to publish a series of title based off the Sylvester 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.”

Craig Lewis, commercial director at Reef added: “We have big ambitions for Reef and the Rambo IP is the first step in establishing us as a worldwide player.

“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.”

The Rambo video game is due out sometime in 2012 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. Not much detail is currently available at this time but its still early days.
