Darksiders franchise not in danger, THQ boss assures

New THQ boss Jason Rubin’s recent quote about Darksiders II being “very interesting” but wanting to “get that team to make other very interesting games” has landed the man in some hot water with fans fearful of plans to axe the series.

Not so, Rubin has followed up.

“The quote implied that I am not enthusiastically behind the Darksiders universe, and that THQ has made decisions not to continue the Darksiders franchise,” he said.

“This is simply untrue.”

“My quote ‘I can get the team to make other interesting games’ was intended in the context of having different teams within this incredibly talented studio work on new original IP, as well as continuing to support the Darksiders franchise.”

And the world is right side up once again.

Darksiders II will be out in a few months, in August.
