Reef Entertainment have announced that they have snapped up the rights to publish games based on the Rambo film franchise.

The publisher is describing the first game, which will be released next year, as a triple-A project. An all out action game with the abillity to use traps sounds good to me. A little stealth wouldn’t go amiss either.

“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,” revealed 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 also had something to say: “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 game will be released next year on PS3 and Xbox 360.
