And so after a lot of teasing, we finally get the official announcement. Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days is under development for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC and set to release next year from developer IO Interactive.
The game follows our "heroes" Kane and Lynch through the gritty Shanghai underworld. Dog Days is said to be inspired by documentary film makers and the user generated era in terms of style. Perhaps that is why we've seen some interesting perspectives in the teaser videos up to this point. In fact we've got a new one today called "Bowling for Shanghai" posted below. We're promised a fresh perspective on intensity and realism.
No other details of the game were given but Niels Jorgenson, IO Interactive's general manager, has stated that feedback from the first game helped shape the sequel. Lets hope they listened to us when we asked for online co-op play.
