It looks as though Jackie Estacado’s adventures won’t be continuing as soon as we thought. 2K Games has announced that The Darkness II has been pushed back from October 4 to February 7. The first-person shooter is currently in development at Digital Extremes, who are no doubt refining the many ways in which sentient demon arms can gut a man, and will pick up some time after the original, with Jackie now the head of a crime family.
Also, a friendly reminder to Comic-Con attendees: playable demos are set up at Top Cow’s booth, #2629, and a “Spreading The Darkness: From Comic Book to Video Games and Entertainment” panel will be held on Thursday, July 21, 2011, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. (PDT) in Room 9. Marc Silvestri from Top Cown, Mike Patton, and more will be on hand to chat it up.
