Darkness II Can’t Find Light Switch, Loses Release Date

There are almost a dozen high-profile games releasing in October of this year, such as Dark Souls, Battlefield 3, Batman: Arkham City, and the Sims 3: Pets… OK, maybe not that last one. As of today, there will be one less game on October’s full plate.

Darkness II was originally scheduled to release on October 7th of this year. 2K Games has announced that Darkness II will now be pushed back to February 7th 2012 for North America, and February 10th for all other regions. 2K Games did not give a reason for the delay, but confirmed that Darkness II will still have a playable demo at Comic-Con. Darkness II is going to be a launch title for the Wii U, so maybe 2K is pushing the title back to be closer to the Wii U release.
