The Darkness Delayed SlightlyPreviously advertised for a May release, 2K Games has confirmed that The Darkness is now set to spread over PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this June. No reason was given for the delay, although its likely just a case of taking a little more time to polish what is already an impressive-looking game. Developed by Starbreeze Studios, The Darkness is a first-person action game that features an immersive and gritty storyline written in collaboration with famed comic-book writer, Paul Jenkins (also of Civil War: Frontline). Set in the dark and seedy underbelly of New York City, players experience the role of mafia hitman Jackie Estacado, heir to "The Darkness," an ancient power that awakens within him on his 21st birthday. Jackie must use traditional weapons as well as learn to command his terrible new powers to seek revenge on his own crime family. The Darkness is based on the popular comic of the same name published by Top Cow Publishing and created by Marc Silvestri and Paul Jenkins.
