Prepare for first blood, as Rambo the video game is set to make its way to consoles following the acquisition of the rights from film company StudioCanal by UK-based publisher Reef Entertainment, MCV reports. Fending off stiff competition, the deal gives Reef license to develop several titles based upon the action-packed Syslvester 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.”

“We have big ambitions for Reef and the Rambo IP is the first step in establishing us as a worldwide player.” Reef Entertainment's Commercial Director, Craig Lewis added. “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.”

No date has yet been set for the Rambo game. Don't push him...

Has potential. Just need some screens and gameeplay to get an idea of whether this should be bought.

Oh gawd. This will either be dull or ass-kicking. I just hope they overhype it with stunts and everything-blows-away scenes!

This should be a 3rd person like Socom. FPS's are over rated now. It should also be PS MOVE compatible too.

The problem with 3rd person games is the camera tends to be pants along with frequent targeting issues.

Loved the old 'Bird's Eye View' Rambo games on Commodore & Atari, hope this will be a 3rd person shooter as well, and it better be a damned good one to carry the Rambo name..."When they fucked with Rambo they fucked up"

This'll be pants in 3rd person so I hope it's either an FPS or a top down shooters.
