Bionic Commando devs working on Terminator Salvation videogame adaptation

On May 22, 2009, Terminator Salvation (starring Christian Bale, of all people) will hit theaters. And of course, it’s also getting a videogame. 

Warner Bros. Interactive, Equity Games, and Halcyon Entertainment have revealed that GRIN Studios (the folks putting the finishing touches on Capcom’s new Bionic Commando) are hard at work on Terminator Salvation: The Videogame. Not too much is known about it, other than it will be a third-person action game with players battling the Skynet army featured in the film. No word on whether the game will feature a sexy Christian Bale termintor. 

This isn’t the first movie/action-game tie-in GRIN are working on; they’re currently in production of Wanted: Weapons of Fate (based on the movie that was based on the comic book) which ships early next year.
