2K games has finally made it official this morning. Sequel to The Darkness has been teased and rumoured for a good while now. But its good to finally see it come to realization. This time Digital Extremes (Dark Sector) will be taking over of the dev helm.

The Darkness II breaks out of the sea of conventional first-person shooters with its fervid Quad-Wielding gameplay, which will allow players to slash, grab, and throw objects and enemies with their Demon Arms while simultaneously firing two weapons. The game is layered with the use of dark versus light, steeped in deep and twisted storytelling, and engulfed in stylistic violence that is visualized through a hand-painted graphic noir technique that stays true to its comic book origins.

I am happy to see one of my favorite games to get the sequel treatment. Its been a long 3 years, so its gonna be interesting to see The Darkness evolve with its Quad welding and Dark/Light gameplay.

The Darkness II will be hitting Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and Windows PC in fall 2011.

To stay up to date with the Darkness 2, 2k has set up a new website here to check out www.embracethedarkness.com
