Take-Two Interactive boss Strauss Zelnick said THQ would be done in six months. And although THQ has essentially told him to mind his own business, another piece of potential bad news is floating around concerning the embattled publisher.
Currently, Darksiders II holds a release date of June 26. The anticipated sequel from Vigil Games focuses on another of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse – Death – and is supposed to feature a more in-depth gameplay format (almost an action/RPG, from what we've heard). But in speaking to RipTen , a PR representative calls that June 26 date into question.
The interview was with THQ executive vice president Danny Bilson but when Darksiders II came up, the PR rep interrupted and said the company can't "honestly" confirm the launch date. Bilson elaborated by saying they haven't announced anything specific but the team is "working really, really hard" and they won't ship the game "before it's done." Well, it's probably a good idea. THQ needs this one to be successful, and they know it.
