Rumor: Darksiders II Rampages Into Summer 2012?

The original garnered plenty of loyal fans, and every single one of them desperately wants a launch date for the sequel.

Well, you might catch your first glimpse tomorrow night if you tune into the Spike TV Video Game Awards, which kick off at 8 p.m. EST.

According to several sources (most of which point towards European site Playfront.de), Darksiders II will be one of several big games to grace the stage at the VGAs. We've also heard that the trailer will come with an estimated release date of Summer 2012. For now, that seems like a good launch window; what else is set to come out during the summer? It's usually a slow time.

For more info concerning Darksiders II, check out our preview, where you will learn that developer Vigil Games has no interest in tossing out a rehash of the first title. No sir, they've got some tricks up their sleeve for the sequel... Can't wait to try it!

Sign me up for this one. The first one was awesome and unique to the platform being and action-adventure type. I sort of want to go back and play through it again on hard, maybe go for the platinum.

I've been tempted to play it again on the ps3 (I got it on your advice, but as a ghetto rental, and beat and returned it), but I got it for 5 bucks for pc on cyber monday week.

There's a bunch of potential in this franchise, hope they reach it and we don't get another Dead Rising kind of fail.

I have confidence in it. If Darksiders 2 was being developed by Capcom I'd be concerned. It seems outside of SFIV most things Capcom have been met with disappointment.

Sounds good but don't change the formula too much. They're got the new character and the new setting, all they need now is a jump button that works every time and I'll be good to go.
