We no longer have enough people to finish our game.

Fuck.

Actually this works out, means I can wait til after my exams before finishing Darksiders 1.

Q.) Is Darksiders II being pushed back because of the recent layoffs at Vigil Games?
A.) No, the staffing changes at Vigil Games have not impacted the release date.

Well.

Anyway, still looking forward to it, don't mind it being delayed - not sure what's out in August vs June, might still be a decent time to release without being buried by competition, which could make people forget about it.

Q.) Is Darksiders II being pushed back because of the recent layoffs at Vigil Games?

A.) No. While the game needs some extra man-hours to be finished those staff laid off were all lazy worthless fucks who were all totally jelly of our success. Good riddance!

:D

@alternate: Sold enough for a sequel, I doubt THQ would do a sequel if it wasn't profitable.

I partly jest. It sold 1m-1.2m depending on who you read - which for a title in dev for 3 years is under performing. They did send it out to die with zero promotion though so I can understand them wanting to double down on a sequel. Question is - do they have enough cash to promote it this time and does Joe Public have a clue what the fuck a Darksiders is?

This reminds me I should really finish that first 1.

Definitely a bummer. I was hoping to have a few solid months to play this one before the busy fall release season.

Well, this can't be good for THQ. I guess it leaves me more time to try Darksiders.
