THQ president Jason Rubin has stressed the publisher's support for Vigil Games' Darksiders franchise.
His comments come after several gaming media outlets reported on a quote stemming from a recent interview with The Verge, which has been "reported out of context by a number of news outlets":
The quote implied that I am not enthusiastically behind the Darksiders universe, and that THQ has made decisions not to continue the Darksiders franchise. This is simply untrue. My quote 'I can get the team to make other interesting games' was intended in the context of having different teams within this incredibly talented studio work on new original IP, as well as continuing to support the Darksiders franchise.
I enjoyed the original game when it came out, and one of my first tweets as president of THQ was 'Best part of my new job at THQ? When the Darksiders 2 playable suddenly drops on my desk... @thq. Since that tweet I have been playing a lot of Darksiders 2 and it is far better than the first. I'm incredibly excited about Vigil and the Darksiders franchise. Keep your eyes peeled on Monday for an awesome new trailer that brings the world to life in a way you haven't seen before!
It's actually extremely sad to see how gaming publications make sensationalized titles with absolutely no merit. The exact same case occurred with Rubin regarding his comments about how he was "embarrassed" by Saints Row: The Third. He, once again, had to clarify those comments, which isn't what he stated in the first place at all.
Darksiders 2 itself is currently scheduled for a release on August 14th 2012 in the United States. Its predecessor sold 1.3 million units, but if the sequel doesn't manage to exceed the aforementioned sales figure, outgoing EVP of Core Games Danny Bilson stressed there simply won't be a third installment in the franchise in a financial sense - which especially holds credence based on the firm's current financial situation.
