Darksiders 2 Gets Release Date

THQ have announced an official release date for their upcoming sequel, Darksiders 2.

The game will be released on August 26, 2012 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U. Darksiders 2 follows up the success of the original title released back in early 2010 and will see you playing as Death as you try to save your brothers name.

THQ has been in financial hot water as of recently with the company's president taking a 50% pay cut and the company laying off employees left and right. It's no far stretch to say that THQ has a lot riding on the success of Darksiders 2.
