    It's official! Just a minute ago, Ecko|Code announced the follow-up to what was iPhone's first cinematic 3D, console-level game back in 2009.

    Here's the first place you'll see the details since I received them a couple hours ago with a NDA until the Comic-Con announcement, being part of the press!

    Developed internally at Ecko|Code in conjunction with SHOWTIME, Dexter The Game 2 puts players in the shoes of America’s favorite vigilante in an open-world Miami. Dexter navigates the city in his own signature style. Crime scenes will be investigated with the knowledge that the serial killers who have evaded Miami’s Police Department will be stalked and given their comeuppance by Dexter's Dark Passenger. Series star and executive producer Michael C. Hall has provided the voice of Dexter Morgan and has been a close collaborator in the game’s development.

    “The fan’s main comment about the original game was that it was too short. With Dexter The Game 2’s procedurally created serial killers and cases, the player will never run out bad guys to stalk and crimes to solve,” said Marc Fernandez, Chief Creative Officer of Ecko|Code. ��“Exploring a richly detailed and vast Miami through Dexter’s eyes is thrilling.”

    "Over the years we’ve worked closely with Ecko|Code to experiment with how fans enjoy experiencing Dexter’s world in the digital space," said Laura Palmer, Senior Vice President, Distributor Marketing, Showtime Networks. “Combining the freedom and the dark humor and suspense of the series, Dexter The Game 2 is unquestionably the most ambitious project yet.”

    Screenshots and a trailer forthcoming!

    Since the trailer had dubstep and the fact that it's an open world, I think I'll get this.

    I suddenly thought about this game the passed days. I even watched gameplay videos just to remember how it looked. This is one of the first iOS games that I enjoyed. And now look at that, just in time with my reminiscing :D

    The graphics wan't much improved but looks like the gameplay is. Driving a car instead of a menu of where you go? Wow! ;)

    This is offensive. Who would choose to be a serial killer? How could you possibly know what it feels like to take a life?
    Why would you want to? It's a bad idea.

    But apparently they did it :p. Dexter himself may not approve of serial killer video games, except when he's in one.

    Clearly you're not a Dexter fan, so calm down. It's nothing like how it appears, and you don't get it, so instead of making any more blatantly misdirected claims, just ignore it.

    Or, read the hilarious and well-written novels by Jeff Lindsay, or watch the (equally well-written but less funny and more dramatic) television show.

    That guy was quoting Dexter from episode 6x10. Louis designs a video game where you can play as serial killers like Jack the Ripper and he wants Dexter's advice on it, then that's what Dex says. So he must be a Dexter fan :D.

    No need to thank me :) but it's nice of you

    I see they listened to the consumers this time, props for that.
    Love the fact it's a sandbox game with endless quests but still I'll wait for a few gameplays to see how it performs once it is out before using my iTunes gift card
    Not being cheap it's just that so many great games is coming out both for iOS&Pc and cant have tham all so I wait for price drop :/

    This gives me nothing...sure looks like Dexter, but I would have chosen a completey different genre.

    Probably Point & Click, maybe something like Heavy Rain...mixing investigation with scenes that have a strong sense of urgency.

    "The game is scheduled to be released to coincide with the start of season 7 of the show, which premieres on September 30th. Keep an eye out for Dexter the Game 2 around then."

    Is it out anywhere or any new info on it?

    NVM

    "Additionally this fall, Showtime and Ecko|Code will release Dexter The Game 2, an open-world game set in Miami, for Android, iOS and PC. The game is a sequel to 2010′s Dexter The Game."
