Despite launching to brilliant reviews and topping the US sales charts and reaching second in the UK, it seems that Darksiders II is struggling to reach the sales figures THQ need for the game to break even or take a profit.
Games industry analyst, Michael Pachter has estimated that DSII sold barely over a million units so far. "August release Darksiders II has sold an estimated 1 million units to date, and appears to be struggling to approach its 2 million units break-even threshold," he said.
"Darksiders II's performance and a history of game delays and cancellations leaves us skeptical that THQ can successfully execute its turnaround strategy, which centers on a streamlined release slate," Pachter added. "If any of THQ's Q4 2013 releases are late, liquidity is likely to be tight by next summer unless either Homefront 2 or the Patrice D'silets game are released by then."
Darksiders II will also be launching on the Wii U next month, did you buy and enjoy Darksiders II?
