THQ Announces Poor Darksiders II Sales

THQ explains it has shipped 1.4 million units of Darksiders II through September 30 which seems like a pretty decent sales figure, however, during an investors call, CEO Brian Farrell remarked that the company is disappointed with sales thus far.

He explained that Darksiders II had got some great reviews from its audience, and noted that THQ was “pleased with the quality of the game”. but Rubin said that it “did not perform to our expectations”.

He said, “While we were pleased with the quality of the game, with a Metacritic of 83, sales of the title were below our expectations.”

President Jason Rubin also commented saying, "Darksiders II did not perform to our expectations or live up to its generally favorable reception.”

Darksiders II was given a healthy 8.5 rating by our team and has been well received throughout the gaming community. As Christmas approaches I'm sure the game will be boosted by more sales. What do you think?

I'm a lifelong gamer and share my passion with the world in the form of streaming my games on twitch.tv - www.twitch.tv/terrorhertz and making YouTube videos about all the games I enjoy. I'm also a budding games journalist here :)

My gaming journey began in the Christmas 1992 when aged 6, I got my Sega Mega Drive with Sonic One and World Cup Italia 90. Since then I have played and own pretty much every console since then, just check my collection video on my YouTube channel.

Now days I mainly play PC games and got into the PC side of things when I started playing Everquest in 2005. This game opened my eyes to the mmorpg genre and since then have played most MMO's of which World of Warcraft was my most played. Right now I'm playing and streaming DayZ and FIFA with a few other games thrown in here and there. I'm a games journalist and write weekly articles and monthly reviews and previews whilst also uploading 3+ videos weekly to my YouTube channel where you can find loads of awesome HD gaming videos - www.youtube.com/terrorhertzhd

I've worked as a hardware/software technician for Apple the past 4 years and really enjoy working with computers. I have built/modded/overclocked PC's since around 2007 and it's a massive interest of mine. My other hobbies include video editing, carp fishing, golf and playing guitar.
