Darksiders 2 Release Date Delayed, Is Now August 14th
Originally scheduled to ship next month, THQ clarified today that the game is set to release on August 14th. Brian Farrell, CEO, stated on Twitter that pre-orders are five times higher than the amount of the pre-orders made for the original installment in the same time period. THQ also stated that their marketing budget for Darksiders 2 is double that of the budget for its predecessor.
The financial figures must bring a smile to THQ’s face, knowing the amount of anticipation that is building for Darksiders 2. Delays aren’t always a bad thing, so long as it results in a better product. Patience is a virtue, while you may have to wait a little longer to control the Horseman Death, let’s hope THQ makes the most of the extra time they’re taking.
