Good news for fans is that Top Cow have confirmed that a sequel to the game is currently in development. Bad News? Original developers Starbreeze have confirmed that they will not be helming the project. According to Starbreeze’s CEO Johan Kristiansson : “I heard that there were talks about a Darkness sequel, but Starbreeze is not involved in anything like that right now. We are busy on two projects together with EA,” he said.
Hopefully the as yet unnamed studio behind the sequel is up to the task.
