The Darkness II to use next version of Digital Extremes' Evolution Engine

Big Download has learned that the just announced first person shooter sequel The Darkness II, developed by Digital Extremes, will be using the next version of the developer's own in-house Evolution Engine for its graphics base. This bit of news was confirmed by Digital Extremes' PR rep via an email.

While most of Digital Extremes' previous game projects have used various versions of Epic Games' Unreal Engine it created the Evolution Engine for its 2008 third person action game Dark Sector. There's no word on what new features will be added to the new verison of the engine for use in The Darkness II, which is due out this fall for the PC and other platforms. The developer does offer third party developers a way to license the Evolution Engine for games made outside of Digital Extremes.
