THQ has announced that Darksiders II won't be making its previously confirmed June 26th and June 29th release dates in North America and Europe respectively, shifting the game into an August release window with an as yet unspecified date.

Doubts had been cast over whether Darksiders II would indeed be released in June as scheduled, with THQ's Executive Vice President of Core Games, Danny Bilson assuring gamers that the game wouldn't see release "before it's done".

THQ has moved the date of Vigil's hack 'n' slash sequel to ensure its quality. “The date was shifted to ensure we meet the high quality threshold that we are committed to achieving,” the publisher confirmed.

An exact August release date for Darksiders II is expected to surface in a few days.

What a gaming company that wants to release a complete game without a couple first week patches?

@4 i suppose this is more likely the reason for the delay, to avoid releasing against another game. it was scheduled for the end of june, how much could they "fix" before the beginning of august?

easy they pushed it back so they could put some dlc on the disc and make us complain that we have to pay for something that is already there. lol

Yeah, I had that thought too.

However, thinking about it, if it appears in early August, it'll be perfect.
Right smack bang in the middle of the summer "drought"

A perfect time for a massive dungeon crawler

I don't mind this, I mean, it probably means it's getting a little extra polish or something, and it means I can finish all my other games in the meantime...
