There's a whole stack of interesting projects supposedly bubbling away at various developers that didn't make this year's E3. One of the most disapointing no-shows was The Darkness 2, which no one has seen hide nor hair of since the sequel was announced at last year's San Diego Comic Con.

2K Games still holds exclusive rights over games based on the Dark Horse / Top Cow Comics, and a sequel was known to be in development back in January this year - but trawling the net for information on The Darkness 2 just throws up a lot of outdated blogs and old reviews of the original game.

Splicing together first-person shooting with supernatural powers, The Darkness got a fairly good write up (twice) here and seemed to hit a positive note with both fans of the original comic, and shooter nuts in general.

The studio responsible for the original, Starbreeze, put out their Chronicles of Riddick remake last year but since then nothing's been heard of them aside from rumours and speculation that they're the team working on a Syndicate reboot.

So what's happened to The Darkness 2? Do you know? Drop a note in the box below and we'll love you long time, soldier boy.
