The sequel to the rather excellent, but a tad under rated The Darkness was announced this February. Since then, developer Digital Extremes (Dark Sector) have remained quite tight lipped on the game. But today they break their silence with an October 2011 release date.

It’s been two years since Jackie Estacado, now the Don of the Franchetti crime family, used The Darkness to kill the men responsible for his girlfriend’s murder. He’s been unable to shake the memory of Jenny’s death since bottling up his supernatural power, and now The Darkness wants out. A sudden, unprovoked attack on Jackie’s life heralds the start of a full-scale mob war, which has clearly been orchestrated by some outside force. The botched attempt opens the door for The Darkness to reemerge, and sets Jackie on a journey to hell and worse, as he unravels the mystery behind the attack and the motivations of The Darkness itself.
The Darkness II will now release on the Xbox360, PS3 and PC by the 7th of October 2011.
