THQ Tentatively Schedules Red Faction 4, Darksiders 2

THQ already has a couple of big releases for 2009 in Red Faction: Guerilla and Darksiders: Wrath of War, and while their financial position isn't fantastic, they're still looking far into the future.

As GameSpot reports, THQ has "slipped a mention" of the upcoming sequels into a slide from a February investor's presentation, and they're set to launch during the company's 2012 fiscal year. Obviously, nothing is cemented just yet, but THQ plans to release Red Faction 4 and Darksiders 2 at some point, despite the fact that neither of 2009's entries in these franchises have succeeded just yet (we have high expectations, though). THQ has also tentatively slated Saints Row 3 for a 2011 launch, and you may remember that Volition wants to take this third installment in a whole new direction. For our part, we think they're going to lean more towards authenticity and realism so as to better compete with Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto franchise, but you never know. As is, you can certainly expect to see the previous three names from this publisher continue on into the future, although we assume such projects will be highly dependent on consumer reaction to Guerilla and Wrath of War this year. At the very least, though, it's good to see a publisher that has faith in its products, and we're all hoping for some great experiences.  We kinda miss Red Faction, you know?

Perhaps when the economy gets rolling again, THQ and other publishers will experience more of an upswing and then they'll be able to solidify future projects.  Cross your fingers!

Saints Row 3 in 2011?

How do we know that GTAV or some other installment will not hit then...personally I think GTA is a better series all around

I seriously miss rpg tunneling from the first red faction. Was seriously disapointed that they destroyed that feature in the second game, and now they are making it in third person. Hopefully they will bring back the ability to dig holes in anything.

I pray to the God of gaimz that Guerilla Wars is great in 3rd person

I'll probably get it even though IGN gives it an undeserved 4.0 like Sonic SERIOUS

Im going to pass on Darksiders, since my crappy ass Ex-girlfriend of 8 years left me for one of the guys that works with her there. Yeah call me a sour puss, but the game had value till she did that to me, on the other hand, I may check out Red Faction, maybe.
