Canadian studio picks up job for 2K Games' sequel

Starbreeze loses Darkness deal to Digital Extremes

Swedish outfit Starbreeze will not be developing The Darkness II, a sequel to the 2007 original that it had created for 2K Games.

Publisher 2K, a subsidiary brand of Rockstar owner Take-Two, revealed today that Canadian outfit Digital Extremes is working on the project.

The game is set for release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC later this year.

Starbreeze, famous for its Chronicles of Riddick games, had a quiet 2010 following its chart-topping year prior.

In March last year EA revealed it had cancelled one of two Starbreeze deals; the first being a Jason Bourne title.

The second, codenamed project Redlime, is thought to still be in production. Last week Starbreeze announced it was hiring for more staff.
