EA and Klei Entertainment’s today announced that Shank 2 is currently in development for Xbox Live Arcade, PC and the PlayStation Network.
“Creatively, Shank still has a lot to give” said Jamie Cheng, founder of Klei Entertainment. “We took the feedback from the community and ran with it, putting our own flavor on every change. For Shank 2, we literally took apart the game and put it back together to push the envelope in combat mechanics, visuals, and 2D animation in games.”
In Shank 2, the bloody-brawler with platforming goodness is back, with its fluid controls and comicbook-style art in 2D.
The game will als ointroduce a new arcade-style survival co-op mode where gamers will work together to take down enemies using the environment and weapon pick-ups.
No specific release date was given but it will be available sometime in 2012.
