Shank 2 has been announced, and EA Partners will be publishing it, for release on Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and PC in early 2012.
'We took the feedback from the community and ran with it, putting our own flavor on every change,' said Klei's Jamie Cheng. 'For Shank 2, we literally took apart the game and put it back together to push the envelope in combat mechanics, visuals, and 2D animation in games.
'Shank 2 is the best thing that Klei has done to date: we didn’t want to just “build more Shank”,' continued Cheng over at the game's new site. 'We redesigned all the underlying systems to give you twice the fidelity and far more control over our favorite stabbing man.'
