According to a blog post on Darksiders II’s official website, the game’s release has been pushed back from June to August. This of course makes me incredibly sad and happy at the same time. Sad that I wont be able to play it as soon as I’d hoped, and happy that the game will be getting the polish it needs. I’m so conflicted right now. As quoted on their site,
[quote]The rumor-mill has been churning with speculation recently, so we wanted to put it to rest first here with our core fans: Darksiders II will be moving to release globally in August 2012, rather than June as previously announced. It’s just a short delay, but we promise the game you’ll have in August will be well worth the wait!
This is great news for the team at Vigil, because it allows additional time for polish and to ensure that all aspects of Darksiders II meet the high-quality bar the team is targeting. In game development, more time is always a good thing for quality and the Vigil team is dedicated to providing the definitive Darksiders experience.[/quote]
Oh Vigil, the games you play with my heart. Just make sure the delay is worth it in the end!
