A Sierra Entertainment spokesperson has confirmed to Pro-G that The Chronicles Of Riddick: Assault On Dark Athena, the re-invention of the acclaimed PC and Xbox FPS Escape from Butcher Bay, is now scheduled to ship in 2008. No reason for the delay was given.

Back in May when the title was first announced, Sierra revealed that Starbreeze Studios is handling development and would be sprucing the title up with enhanced visuals, a new story chapter and online multiplayer.

Starbreeze has recently finished work on the Xbox 360 and PS3 FPS The Darkness.

Oops, I stand corrected, '07 it is. It just seems a little strange that so many games are suddenly being pushed back, maybe it's something specific to this generation of consoles? Or publishers being way too optimistic with their due dates?

That's Timeshift warped into 2008, GTA IV carjacked into next year and now even the mighty Vin Diesel gets beaten by his own deadline?

Something's going on. It's like they all saw footage of MGS4 or Assassin's Creed recently and decided they were going to have to go back to the drawing board.
