2K Games Signs The Darkness
2K Games announced today The Darkness, a premier video game based on the popular comic book franchise. The Darkness is currently in development for next generation systems (PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360) and is scheduled to be released next winter. Under development by the award-winning developer Starbreeze Studios, The Darkness video game is based on the best-selling comic book series from Top Cow Productions and utilizes a Starbreeze internally developed next-generation game engine.
“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.”
