Darksiders 2 confirmed, out 2012

THQ green lights sequel, it confirms

THQ's confirmed that a sequel to last year's well received, Darksiders is in development - and it'll release in 2012.

Speaking at THQ's E3 analyst meeting last night, core games VP, Danny Bilson said: "Darksiders 2 is coming. We've green lit that. It's well into production now, it's two years out from now."

No more details were offered, though speaking to CVG earlier this year Bilson suggested that Darksiders 2 will be bigger than the first.

"[Darksiders] did about twice as much as Red Faction," he said. "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."
