Starbreeze has said it wasn’t its call to not do a Darkness sequel.
Digital Extremes is handling development of the sequel, with it due to launch this October for PS3, 360 and PC. Starbreeze said that it had just started work on a new project by the time Darkness II was greenlit.
“The decision was not up to Starbreeze, and when it was decided to do a sequel we had already started working on a new project,” Starbreeze CEO Mikael Nermark told CVG.
Starbreeze is currently at work on Project Redlime, thought to be a reboot of Syndicate, with EA Partners publishing the title.
