When Darksiders 2 was delayed, there was no solid confirmation where the title would fall. Now, publisher THQ has confirmed that the game will be coming in the middle of August.


"We look forward to launching Darksiders [2] beginning on August 14 in North America," announced THQ CEO Brian Farrell during an investor conference call. After talking with publishers, THQ determined that "mid-August is a more favorable release window."


Pre-orders for Darksiders 2 are over five times greater than what the original Darksiders had at the same point before its release. THQ will spend double on marketing for what it did with the first Darksiders.
