THQ announced this morning that Darksiders 2
has been officially delayed
until August 2012. The financially troubled
publisher said in February that Darksiders 2
would launch on June 26
. According to Vigil, the additional time is meant for "polish and to ensure that all aspects of Darksiders 2
meet the high-quality bar the team is targeting."
The word comes a week after THQ EVP Danny Bilson claimed in an interview that Darksiders didn't have an announced launch date
and that "the team is working really, really hard." He added, "We're not going to ship it before it's done."
