Darksiders II Delayed to August

18 Apr 2012

Bad news for those that are looking forward to Darksiders II as, according to a post on the game's official blog, the game has been delayed to August from its original release in June. The post cites "polish" as the reason for this delay, and also hosts a brief Q&A, so I'm going to quote an excerpt from that:
Q.) Is Darksiders II being pushed back because of the recent layoffs at Vigil Games?
A.) No, the staffing changes at Vigil Games have not impacted the release date.

Q.) Is content going to be cut from the game?
A.) Definitely not! As we approached the game’s completion date, the team asked for more time to polish the huge amount of content included in this ambitious project. We are all committed to making Darksiders II the highest-quality game possible and the additional time will allow the team to do just that. The game content remains unchanged, as do our future DLC plans.

Q.) Are you truly pushing the date back to make Darksiders II a better game?
A.) Absolutely, that is the only goal fueling this decision. Nothing is more important to us than quality and thankfully our company’s current operational position allows us to make the right choice for Darksiders II.

We'll let you know when we have more information on the delay and the new release date.

Thanks NeoGAF.
