THQ’s executive vice president of core games has revealed new information about the forthcoming RPG sequel, Darksiders 2.
"When we do the Darksiders sequel, it’ll be a different character and take place simultaneously to the other story," Bilson explained during a keynote to the IGDA leadership forum, transcribed by Joystiq.
"There’s only one apocalypse I couldn’t very well have four different apocalypses, one for each rider.
"It has some new mechanics and some very robust features that differentiate it a lot and grow it from the first game because you have to build on the first one, you can’t repeat it. I think that’s very important in franchise-building."
Darksiders 2′s release date was recently confirmed to have slipped until some point in 2012.
It seems THQ are taking their time with the sequel, in an effort to build on the IPs encouraging debut.
