The Darkness 2

Top Cow announces Darkness sequel in the works

Here's a great indicator of how slowly the wheels can occasionally turn. During Top Cow Productions' Comic-Con panel, head of the comic publisher, Marc Silvestri, was finally able to announce that a follow-up to The Darkness (based on the Top Cow IP) was in the works. We're not surprised if the news has a familiar ring to it: The company hinted at a sequel during the 2008 NYCC ... 15 months ago.

In more immediate news, the company announced that the original game would soon be added to the greatest hits value line-up on PS3 and Xbox for $29.99. If you haven't already checked it out, it's an interesting recommendation, if only to prepare yourself for the sequel that may finally be coming.

According to comments made to VG247, original developer Starbreeze will not be returning for the sequel.

Loved the first game so i have high hopes for the sequel, just a shame Starbreeze are no longer on board.

They were simply waiting to see if I liked the first one.  I finally got time to play it last month, and I gave them the "go ahead" to make a sequel.



You're welcome.   8)

Thanks, we appreciate you finally getting round to that.

Can you make D3 produce another Earth Defense Force to make me shiny happy?!

I already told them to get to work on a EDF / Onechanbara crossover.  Should be out by Q4 2011.

The Darkness 2 still on the cards

A sequel to the The Darkness is still being planned, comic book publisher Top Cow has revealed, but legal issues are currently impeding progress.

It's been a while since a follow-up to the gloomy, atmospheric shooter was first hinted at, but Joystiq has managed to secure a status update.

Atom! Freeman (yes, that's his real name), Top Cow's sales and marketing director, said, "There are certain rights issues that we needed to clear up in order to move ahead with The Darkness 2. Those are getting cleared up. While there are no specific plans, it is definitely still on all of our minds."

"We loved the game. The fans loved the game. There's no reason to not do another one. Just making sure that all of our ducks are in a row so that we can begin that process."

In July 2009, original developer Starbreeze stated that it would not be involved with any sequel. There's no word yet on who might step into the breach.

The Darkness was released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2007.

Still have this game as well. The Darklings were such a cool concept even in the multi-player modes. Crossing fingers for a sequel.
