London, 20th August 2013: UK video game publisher Reef Entertainment is very proud to announce it has acquired, from Studiocanal, the exclusive console video game rights for legendary motion-picture ‘The Terminator’ and the console and PC video game rights for its sequel ‘Terminator 2: Judgment Day’.
Reef will create brand new video games based on the sought-after licenses entitled: ‘TERMINATORS: THE VIDEO GAME’.
A Reef spokesperson said: ‘Here at Reef we are huge fans of 1984 & 1991 Sci-Fi action master-pieces. It’s an incredible opportunity and an equally huge responsibility to create a game that does great justice to the motion-pictures. We are studying all aspects and influences of the Terminator universe defined in Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day. We have started on our journey and are drawing on all the diverse materials available to produce a high quality, authentic and exciting Terminator video game.’
Reef will provide information on ‘TERMINATORS: THE VIDEO GAME’ as development continues.
‘The Terminator’ was released in 1984 and is widely regarded as a science-fiction classic, launching a beloved franchise that has been expanded in a variety of media and further movies. A humanoid cyborg from a future dominated by machines is sent back in time to kill the mother of the as-yet-unborn rebel leader John Connor. Meanwhile, the rebels also select an agent to travel back in time and stop the Terminator, thereby ensuring that events follow their pre-ordained course.
‘Terminator 2: Judgment Day’ was released in 1991 and is arguably the finest movie of its kind. Continuing the tale, T2 remains at heart a classic science fiction tale: featuring robots running amok, time travel paradoxes and dystopian future worlds. Opening to huge fanfare, T2 went on to become one of the highest-grossing and most culturally iconic science fiction motion-pictures of all time.
