Starbreeze, the original developed of The Darkness, have spoken out regarding the recent announcement of a sequel being in the works at Digital Extremes. While the studio is hard at work on a new title for EA - Project Red Lime, rumoured to be a remake of the Peter Molyneux-classic, Syndicate - they confess the decision to pass the mantle on to Digital Extremes was out of their control.
We quite enjoyed The Darkness, and we're actually pretty excited for the sequel, too, despite our reservations about the studio that brought us the painfully dull Dark Sector. Featuring the ridiculously hyperbolic 'quad-wielding' mechanic, where series stalwart Jackie Estacado can fire away with two pistols while slicing and dicing with his snarling demon arms, it promises to be a wild and wacky adventure.
