The original may have lost Jeff Gerstmann his job, but that ain't stopping IO Interactive announcing a sequel to Kane & Lynch.

Set in the "gritty Shanghai underworld," Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days is going to have a real innovative style, with an undercover documentary vibe going on. Sounds very interesting indeed.

"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 Jørgensen, general manager for IO Interactive. "A special thanks to gamers worldwide for their feedback. They are certainly in for a shock as we, with immense pride, welcome back our two dear, violent and somewhat unfortunate friends."

The latest trailer (embedded above) looks mental. And totally rad. We can't wait to hear more.
