Terminator Game ?

A game based on the upcoming Terminator film "Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins" will be arriving on "next-generation consoles, PC and mobile" when the movie hits theaters in the summer of 2009. Terminator license-owner Halcyon Co. has formed its own gaming subsidiary to develop the title, according to Hollywood Reporter.

"When you own the intellectual property and have the creative control, you can make sure you're publishing a top-tier video game that will satisfy the needs of the marketplace," newly appointed Halcyon Games CEO Peter Levin told the site.

Development of the game has already begun. The studio's execs told Hollywood Reporter it also plans on making games based on Halcyon's recently acquired first-look rights to works by sci-fi writer Philip K. Dick. The first game adaptation of Dick's works will arrive in 2010, and the studio plans on creating original IPs as well.

Also onboard at Halcyon Games as production VP is Cos Lazouras, who recently worked for Tigon Studios, actor Vin Diesel's game production house.
