Starbreeze: It was not our choice not to do The Darkness II
Starbreeze Studios has come out and said that it was not their choice that the sequel to their cult comic book adaptation The Darkness was developed by a different studio.
The Chronicles of Riddick developer stated that the decision was out of their hands and was taken when they had already started working on another project.
Starbreeze's Mikael Nermark said: "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."
The Scandinavian developer is currently working on an project called RedLime with EA which is widely believed to be a reboot of the Bullfrog classic series, Syndicate. Nermark said recently that it is their biggest project to date.
The Darkness II is in development at Toronto-based studio Digital Extremes and will be out this autumn on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
