Darksiders II is THQ’s second most pre-ordered game

Darksiders II has now become THQ’s second most pre-ordered game in company history, behind last year’s Saints Row: The Third, which sold over 4.25 million copies.

“Given THQ’s focus on building high demand core franchises, and the fact that Darksiders II will be our next release this year, the game is a very important title for us,” said UK marketing director Jon Rooke, adding: “looking at how pre-orders are tracking, the feedback from retail and the consumer reaction, we expect Darksiders II to perform very well at retail.”

Darksiders II arrives on 360, PS3 and PC on August 21st, with a Wii U version in the works.
