THQ gives Darksiders II an exact date

Darksiders II, previously scheduled for June and then delayed to ‘sometime in August’, has been given a precise launch date.

August 14th is the US date provided by THQ CEO Brian Farrell on the company’s recent earnings call. “We look forward to launching Darksiders beginning on August 14 in North America,” Farrell said.

An EU date wasn’t mentioned, though it’ll probably be the 17th, the traditional Friday release.

Farrell’s expecting great things, too; pre-orders were said to have surpassed the original’s by a factor of five.
