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

THQ has big plans for the future of Darksiders II that goes beyond the game’s launch this summer.

Darksiders II arrives on 360, PS3 and PC on August 21st, with a Wii U version to come. It’s the second-highest pre-ordered title in THQ’s history, behind last year’s Saints Row: The Third.

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.

We have long-term plans to continue marketing and building the Darksiders franchise through all post-launch content. We are also anticipating bringing the Darksiders franchise to a new consumer with a Wii U SKU for launch on that console.

We expect Darksiders II to be one of the first highly anticipated titles after the summer lull. 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.”
