Now We Probably Know Who’s Developing The Darkness 2
So there’s this guy named Emmanuel Pappas. And he works for a developer called Digital Extremes. This company has worked on titles you’ve probably heard of, like Unreal and Unreal Tournament, Pariah, Dark Sector and the online side of Bioshock 2.
Mr. Pappas has a website, and like all folks looking to move up in the world, he posted his resume on said website. His resume featured a curiosity; listed under his work with Digital Extremes is The Darkness 2. Hrm.
I am not immediately dismayed by this, mostly because of Dark Sector. Now, Dark Sector may have played like a Gears of War mod, but its presentation and story were very solid. So if these bros take the Starbreeze formula and spice up the presentation a bit, we’ll probably be in for good ole time in front of the TV, because, frankly, The Darkness is a wildly underappreciated game.
Also, I must note that perhaps these guys aren’t making the whole game themselves. It’s a possibility that DE is just co-developing this. Or maybe the guy lied on his resume, and they aren’t doing any of it.
