It looks like yet another developer has been “misquoted” by a big name website. This time it’s the turn of Jason Rubin, whose been the victim of some stealth editing by Polygon.
Posting on the Darksiders community, Rubin wrote about how his recent comments regarding the series have been wrongly interpreted.
“To all Darksiders Fans,
“A quote from a recent interview I did 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 II playable suddenly drops on my desk… @thq”. Since that tweet I have been playing a lot of Darksiders II 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!”
So it sounds like we may be seeing Darksiders III and possibly more, after all. Sounds like a plan to us.
Darksiders II will be released August 21 for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
