Square Enix has sent word that Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days will be released on 27th August.
IO's sequel - in development for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 - follows the two eponymous criminals through "48 hours of hell".
There's an emphasis on a new documentary-style presentation, plus fresh multiplayer modes Undercover Cop, Cops & Robbers and Arcade. Fragile Alliance will return for K&L 1.
"We believe the unique visuals and relentless gameplay has created an intensity never delivered in a videogame before," said Niels Jørgensen, boss of IO. "In a genre where so many games look and feel the same, Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days will make people double-take. We think it's going to make quite an impression."
Our Kane & Lynch 2 preview from January will tell you more.
