Top Cow announces The Darkness 2

But Starbreeze not behind the wheel.

Comic maker Top Cow has announced that a sequel to The Darkness is in development.

The news spilled from a panel at Comic-Con, according to Newsrama, where The Darkness comic author Paul Jenkins was named as game writer.

But developer Starbreeze will not return to make the sequel, according to studio boss Johan Kristiansson. He told vg247 that Starbreeze is "not involved in anything like that right now", but is "busy" working on two unannounced projects for EA.

The Darkness follows gangster protagonist Jackie Estacado, who is blessed/cursed with superpowers that speak in a creepy voice. The game appeared in summer 2007, and received healthy critical applause.
