and Vigil Games
have announced that the release of Darksiders II
has been pushed back from June to August for the sole reason of further polishing the game. Vigil Games were quite clear in their recent blog post declaring that the setback was not the cause of recent layoffs at their studio, for WiiU development, or downloadable content. The delay has not affected plans for pre-order bonuses or future downloadable content. In addition, no content has been cut from the game and the development team is committed to delivering the best possible product upon release.
Further details concerning the delay can be found on the official Darksiders II blog
