It's bad news day, apparently.
That's my birthday, by the way.
The Darkness II had been set to arrive on October 4--no more. 2K Games didn't provide a reason for the delay in the press release, preferring to point people towards the game's Comic-Con presence.
The sequel's in development at Digital Extremes, also developing the video game spin-off of J.J. Abrams' Star Trek. The studio's last major release was Dark Sector, and originally made a name for itself working alongside Epic Games on the Unreal Tournament franchise.
If you happen to be at Comic-Con, though, there will be playable kiosks of The Darkness II.
The rest of us will have to wait.
