Darksiders 2 new release date announced

Amid a conference call full of bad news, THQ announced that they've set a firm date for the release of the highly anticipated title, Darksiders 2. According to THQ CEO Brian Farrell, the game will be launching on August 26, 2012.

It's been a pretty bad day in the news for THQ. First we heard they delayed South Park: The Game into 2013, then the news that they lost hundreds of millions of dollars this year, and finally that Devil's Third may be sold off.

In some good news though, THQ's Farrell mentioned that Darksiders 2 has now been pre-ordered five times more than the original Darksiders. Here's to hoping Darksiders 2 can be an asset to a new and healthy THQ as the company restructures.

    I hope this can help save THQ. If they go down who's going to publish volition's Saints Row games? After SRTT I would really hate to see the franchise die. It's such an awesome game!

    I just hope it doesn't end up like The Saboteur did with Pandemic Studios. It released somewhat unfinished and since the developer closed, there was no hope of any sort of patching later. I'm not really a fan of Darksiders or THQ, but it always sucks to see stuff like that happen.

    I'll definitely buy this new, for what little good it might do for the publisher. It looks like a fantastic game.
