The Darkness II announced for PlayStation 3

Publisher 2K Games has announced that a sequel to the 2007 shooter The Darkness is in development for a fall 2011 release. The Darkness II, developed by Digital Extreme, takes place two years after the events of the original game. Jackie Estacado is now a mafia don, and an attempted assassination on his life ignites a mob war. The Darkness is unleashed yet again, and it's up to Jackie to figure out who tried to kill him and why.

“Sometimes that whooshing sound you hear is that of comic fans holding their collective breath,” says Marc Silvestri, founder and CEO of Top Cow Productions and co-creator of The Darkness comics. “So often disappointed when a favorite character gives birth to a lame movie or video game, us fans have come to expect the worst. And sometimes we get it. But not with The Darkness II. Yeah, call me biased, but this second installment of Jackie Estacado’s epic saga is – in my humble opinion – one of the most brutally cool games I’ve ever played. 2K Games hammered this one out of the park.”

Paul Jenkins is writing the story, which 2K Games calls a "tightly integrated narrative that weaves dark humor with hardcore tenderness."

The Darkness II is set for release on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
