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.
