Empire announced today it has signed an exclusive licensing agreement with Sony Pictures Consumer Products to develop a sequel to the Starsky & Hutch video game. The new game will include new city locations, enhanced graphics and classic music tracks from the 70's and a key new game play feature, which will allow villains to be chased on foot together with new spectacular car chases. It will be published for all current video game consoles and PCs.

Ian Higgins, CEO of Empire said about the licensing deal: "After the recent success of Starsky & Hutch™ we are delighted to have acquired these sequel game rights. This is an important franchise for the company and with the new Hollywood movie due next spring the awareness and interest will increase significantly. We look forward to building this into an even bigger hit than the original game."

"We're very pleased to be continuing our licensing deal with Empire Interactive for the Starsky & Hutch property," said Al Ovadia, Executive Vice President, Sony Pictures Consumer Products. "Empire really captured the essence of the Starsky & Hutch property in the first instalment of the video game and we're confident that the new game will further the property's global appeal."
