After some subtle teasing by the company’s Vice President, THQ has confirmed that Darksiders II will miss its previously announced June 26 release date. The PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 game will now be released sometime in August due to a need for “additional time for polish”:
This is great news for the team at Vigil, because it allows additional time for polish and to ensure that all aspects of Darksiders II meet the high-quality bar the team is targeting. In game development, more time is always a good thing for quality and the Vigil team is dedicated to providing the definitive Darksiders experience.
Darksiders II is also in development for the Wii U and is currently scheduled to launch alongside Nintendo’s next system sometime this Fall.
