Been a while since we heard any mention of Shank, but Klei Entertainment has been hard at work on a sequel for the last year or so. Today, they announced that Shank 2 would be ready by early 2012, and EA has signed on to take over publishing duties once again.
Shank 2 shines the spotlight on protagonist Shank (again), the former mob "cleaner" seeking redemption and revenge. Seems the guy just can't escape violence, and when the lives of those he cares for are threatened once more, he answers the call to arms. Dig the new teaser and updated art.
