Darksiders 2

Darksiders 2 has been delayed, with the June 26, 2012 released pushed back a few months to an unspecified date in August. The sequel to Darksiders needed more development time in order to "to ensure we meet the high quality threshold that we are committed to achieving," according to a FAQ on the game's official website.

THQ has a lot riding on the success of Darksiders 2, as the company recently had to lay off a slew of employees due to massive financial losses in 2011. The company's president even took a 50 percent pay cut, signaling to investors a desire to be a lean, more focused company that puts out successful games.

"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," the delay announcement post read. "In game development, more time is always a good thing for quality and the Vigil team is dedicated to providing the definitive Darksiders experience."
