Starbreezeâ€™s 2007 story-oriented FPS â€œThe Darknessâ€ was one of the yearâ€™s most underappreciated gems. Eclipsed by bigger shooters such as Call of Duty 4, Bioshock and Crysis, The Darkness brought Top Cowâ€™s cult comic book to life. A flawed masterpiece, it contains what is still one of the most emotionally impactive scenes Iâ€™ve encountered in interactive fiction. Besides, Any game featuring Faith No Moreâ€™s Mike Patton is a winner as far as Iâ€™m concerned.
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 Starbreezeâ€™s CEO Johan Kristiansson : â€œI 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,â€ he said.
Hopefully the as yet unnamed studio behind the sequel is up to the task.
