In 2007, a little game called The Darkness was released and is known as one of the sleeper hits of the year. It was a great game lost in wake of bigger shooters like BioShock, Halo 3, and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. A sequel is on the way, and hopefully it does better.
During last year’s Comic-Con, the game was strongly hinted at, and at this year’s show, Top Crow has confirmed that the sequel is in development. However, it’s not being developed by the same team that head the first game, Starbreeze. It’s in development at a different studio.
Starbreeze has too much on their plate to be working on it, the studio confirmed. However, as of yet, it’s not been said exactly who are working on the game.
