The Darkness II pushed to 2012
2K Games today announced the delay of supernatural FPS, The Darkness II, sequel to 2007’s bloodstained hit. Prospective gamers will now need to wait til early 2012 to revisit Jackie Estacado and his serpentine affliction. February 7th to be exact.
Originally The Darkness II was slotted for an October 4th release.
2K provided no explanation for the abrupt delay, of which a multitude of motives could be the driving force, however the stacked lineup of highly anticipated titles set to hit store shelves this Fall does lead one to wonder if the later date is intended to give the game a more ‘exclusive’ release window.
As it stands 2011 has yet to bring forth the release of blockbuster titles such as Batman: Arkham City, Skyrim, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception and RAGE (also slated for an October 4th release).
Obviously delays are never a good thing for anxious gamers but do you feel the delay will ultimately lead to greater success for The Darkness II?
