According to the latest reports, Agoura Hills, California-based game developing and publishing company THQ has announced that they have set a date for the release of the upcoming and highly anticipated title, "Darksiders 2." THQ CEO Brian Farrell said that the game will be launching on August 26, 2012.
THQ previously announced that the company will be delaying the release of "South Park: The Game" until 2013 and "Devil's Third" could be sold off. Moreover, the company has lost hundreds of millions of dollars this year. So the announcement date of the new game comes as a relief for both the fans and the company itself.
