While not exactly a secret, the sequel to Kane & Lynch: Dead Men has now been officially announced. Eidos' gritty action game is called Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days and will be released for PS3, 360 and PC in 2010.
According to Eidos, Dog Days is "inspired by documentary filmmakers and the user-generated era," and has been designed to deliver "a fresh perspective to the words 'intensity' and 'realism' in video games."
"Gamers are always looking for something new and that is exactly what they are going to get with Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days," said Niels Jorgensen, general manager of IO Interactive, in a press release.
I liked the first game, but with qualifications. There's a point where "gritty" becomes "ridiculous" and Kane and Lynch crossed that line a few too many times, plus, the lack of online co-op was puzzling. I'm going to track down someone at Eidos to see if this game will feature online co-op, and I'll let you know when/if I hear back!
