Darksiders 2 confirmed for 2012; Saints Row 3 reveal in December

Darksiders 2 is still in development and scheduled for a 2012 release, THQ core games VP Danny Bilson confirmed during an E3 analyst meeting last week.

“Darksiders 2 is coming,” Bilson confirmed. “We’ve green lit that. It’s well into production now, it’s two years out from now.”

He also confirmed the existence of Saints Row 3, which should have been at this year’s E3, but skipped it in order to “rebuild the technology”.

“I’m not going to show it to you today. This is the only room we’re talking about Saints Row 3. We’re not showing it on the floor because the rollout starts in December on Saints Row 3.

“We’ve spent an extra year rebuilding the technology for this game. It is absolutely gorgeous and still completely insane.”

Looks like we’ll get a glimpse of that come December.
