The Darkness IIhas been pushed from its previously scheduled October 4th, 2011 release to February 7, 2012 in North America and February 10, 2012 internationally.
It's probably not the last game to move out of the crowded holiday season of releases. Instead of competing with games like Gears of War 3, Rage, Batman: Arkham City and Battlefield 3, it will now be up against Inversion in February.
Perhaps 2K Games took a look at the sales of some of Namco Bandai's last new IPs, like Enslaved and Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom, and figured that it didn't have much to fear from the competition?
