The Darkness PS3 Delayed Til Late July

2K Games has announced today that the PlayStation 3 version of The Darkness, by Starbreeze Studios, has been delayed until 20th July in Europe. They have however refused to explain the reasoning behind the delay. The Xbox 360 version of the game is still due for release on later this week, on 29th June, and both versions will still go one sale later this week in the US which all adds to the mystery behind the delay. Starbreeze have been working on The Darkness since the release of the much loved The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay back in 2004.

The Darkness tells the story of Mafia hitman Jackie Estacadon the eve of his 21st birthday when he is suddenly possessed by the malevolent powers of The Darkness. The game is based on the comic book of the same name, no, not the band!.
