With a wink and a nod, Top Cow Productions has hinted at a sequel to the 2K Games-published first-person title, The Darkness.
“We can’t say ‘Darkness’ and ‘videogame sequel’ in the same sentence,” they said at a low-key panel that took place on Saturday afternoon, “So Darkness. Wink. Sequel.”
This is not the first time we’ve heard rumblings of a sequel to the Starbreeze Studios-developed first-person title. Late last year, Dutch rapper Lycon Strife had claimed a Starbreeze employee had confirmed to him that a next-gen sequel was in the works. Neither 2K Games nor Starbreeze have publicly acknowledged the title, but a solid Metacritic rating and decent sales make it an inevitability.
Starbreeze were also said to be working on The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, a next-gen remake of their Xbox and PC first-person shooter Escape from Butcher Bay, which seems to have fallen completely off the map (*cough* shelved *cough*). The Swedish developer is currently working on a secret next-gen update to a classic Electronic Arts title, currently only known as “Project RedLime.”
