THQ’s upcoming action/adventure game Darksiders II has been delayed to August. Developer Vigil says the game has been delayed from its prior June release so the game can receive further polishing.
-Nick’s take: In a recent Game Informer preview, editor Ben Reeves noted that Darksiders II still felt like it needed polishing and would probably be delayed as a result. Well, Mr. Reeves was right–the game has been delayed. THQ needs a hit game because the publisher is struggling right now, so Darksiders II needs to be a quality product.
