News: Majesco's castoffs are somebody else's light at the end of the tunnel.
After Majesco sold off the rights to The Darkness in December, they promised its new suitor would be revealed shortly. Well shortly is today as 2K Games has announced that they will be publishing the Xbox 360/PS3 shooter early next year. This is a delay from the late 2006 release the game originally had when Majesco was publishing it. Famed game makers Starbreeze are still handling the development duties on The Darkness.
"The Darkness video game is a dynamic first person shooter that allows players to call upon the forces of the evil underworld as they fight in gritty, urban environments," said Christoph Hartmann, Managing Director of 2K Games. "Armed with an arsenal of guns, gamers will battle an array of demonic creatures and supernatural powers. The dark and dynamic comic book storyline will translate perfectly into first-person action that fans will love."
"The Darkness is a great franchise and we're proud to be developing the game with 2K Games, Starbreeze and Union Entertainment," said Matt Hawkins, Top Cow's President and COO.
