Darksiders II Gets Pushed Back To August 2012

18 04 2012

Darksiders II, originally planned to come out June 26th, has now been pushed back until August 2012.  If you have not played the first Darksiders game, I highly recommend you go get it now.  It’s definately worth the price that I’m sure it has dropped down to now.

THQ’s reason for this delay it to polish the game so that we will receive the best Darksiders experience possible.  The THQ blog post goes on to say…

“In game development, more time is always a good thing for quality and the Vigil team is dedicated to providing the definitive Darksiders experience.”

“Nothing is more important to us than quality and thankfully our company’s current operational position allows us to make the right choice for Darksiders II. As we’ve stated in numerous articles and videos, Darksiders II is substantially larger game than its predecessor and the ambition of this project requires extra time to polish to the high standards that Vigil Games and THQ are committed to.”

So, this is a great move by THQ in my opinion.  How often have publishers and developers rushed games out only to release a slew of patches in the following weeks?  Props to you THQ.

So what are your thoughts on the delay?
