This morning that THQ announced that Darksiders II, sequel to 2010′s Darksiders, has been officially delayed until August 2012. The original release date was slated for June 26, 2012. Cue dramatic Darth Vader clip from Star Wars Episode III.
The delay doesn’t stem from THQ’s financial problems or from trying to get the game ready for Nintendo’s upcoming Wii U. Rather Vigil Games said that the delay “allows additional time for polish and to ensure that all aspects of Darksiders II meet the high-quality bar the team is targeting.” Based on how much I liked the original, I can wait an extra two months if it helps make Darksiders II even better.
