Analyzing THQ’s Darksiders critical as well as commercial success, a sequel was bound to be announced. The follow up to one of 2010’s best title has been confirmed and is due for release in 2 years.
Speaking during THQ’s E3 analyst meeting, core games VP Danny Bilson stated that Darksiders 2 is well in development and is scheduled for a release in 2 years:
[Darksiders] did about twice as much as Red Faction. It’s done pretty well. I believe that franchise building isn’t about a zillion units out of the gate, it’s about building a fan base, building a community of people that dig it, listening to them, doing what you think is good…
The second one will be twice as big as the first one and the third one you get to big numbers. That’s my strategy.
