2K Games has delayed upcoming comic-book tie-in shooter The Darkness 2 until next year, as developer Digital Extremes apparently needs more time to polish the game.

The Darkness 2 will now be released on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on February 10th, 2012.

Developer Digital Extremes, which is taking over from Starbreeze, had originally been aiming for a 7th October 2011 release.

The Darkness 2 picks up two years after the events of 2007's The Darkness, with players taking the role of Jackie Estacado, a mobster who wields the power of Darkness - big, inky tentacles and demonic underlings that he can control at will.

The look and feel of the game is said to be a departure from the 2007 original and will more closely link to the comic book series that the games are based on, though we haven't played the game for ourselves yet.
