Darksiders II delayed

Darksiders II has been delayed until August 2012, publishing giant THQ has announced.

The sequel, developed by Vigil Games, was originally pencilled in for release in the U.S. on June 29, with a European launch scheduled for June 29.

However, THQ confirmed today that the actioner has been postponed until August in order to improve the quality of the product.

“The date was shifted to ensure we meet the high quality threshold that we are committed to achieving,” said the firm. “It has nothing to do with any other platform releases.”

THQ is expected to announce a firm release date for the game in “days to come.”

Stay tuned.
