THQ announced today that Darksiders II will receive a two month delay from its previous date June 26, to some time in August. The delay will affect the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC versions of the game. According to THQ the delay has been made to make sure the game is of high quality when it comes out.
“This delay is to give the team at Vigil more time to polish the game, fix bugs, and ensure all aspects of Darksiders II meets the high quality bar the team is targeting.”
Others in the industry wonder if the delay is to bring the other console versions closer to the release of the Wii U version of the game. THQ stands firm, saying the delay being for quality reasons and not because of other platform releases.
