View author's profile

THQ has announced several forthcoming sequels for their 2012 fiscal year, which runs from April 2011 ending on March 31st 2012.

According to Kotaku, the list of sequels were reeled off during an investor call by THQ CEO Brian Farrell, who mentioned four sequels to existing THQ properties including Red Faction: Guerrilla, Saints Row and Darksiders. The fourth was the Wii-exclusive De Blob.

THQ bossman Brian Farrell also told Kotaku that gamers should expect Red Faction: Guerrilla 2 to see release sometime around the publisher's fiscal year 2011, which ends March 31st 2011 and to look forward to "robust online gameplay" for the sequel.

Great to hear a possible saints row 3, hopefully it can be in a new area, and a new red faction but another darksiders, the first was incredibly boring and they just ripped off every other game they could think off. i suppose this will give them enough time to copy every game from now till then.

@5;

Pull your ignorant head out of your loose arsehole and think for a second.

Games get their ideas, from other things, it's part of life. Books do it, films do it, music does it. It's like saying, any FPS copied Doom, or Goldeneye.

If your that narrowminded, stupid, ignorant, and pathetic to think that they just stole ideas from every game possible, well fuck you, seriously.

A sequel to Darksiders doesn't shock me. Thank you GameInformer, guess there's supposed to be three more or something.

saints row 3 would be pretty good if they keep the same style as the first 2 and dont make it as glitchy as SR2.

Right on... totally agree.

Darksiders was awesome.

Besides, being a mix of games can be a bad thing, but darksiders did it well. who would want more than the mix up of the GOOD elements from GOOD games.... with has a Un-stolen and very interesting (maybe a bit whack) story line?

And @7
Grow up, man.
It's that guys opinion that they copied everything from somewhere else, no need to just bash him for it because you don't think so.

#7 - Talk about an over reaction, blimey.

Darksiders was as generic as they come, and it really was a carbon copy of Zelda, in Biblical clothes. The only thing in the game not from Zelda? The Portal gun. *face palm*

Hopefully they can shake things up for the sequel, and I am interested in seeing the impact that the presence of the other horsemen will have.

They should put 4 player co-op free roaming in SR3. Bigger map, more activities, more challenges, create your own customize gangs, and no more women clothing!!!

I liked Red Faction, and it's DLC story chapter was also excellent. I'd probably buy the sequel unless it gets absolutely slated in reviews.

Wild guess: Darksiders 2-4 will be the other three horsemen, with Death being the last. No complaints here, I'm enjoying the game just fine. Just curious how they'll be able to revamp a somewhat generic hack 'n' slash game into four distinct and worthwhile games.

@30: saints row was fresh and fun, it provides something that other games in that genre failed to do (such as GTA4)

It was great fun playing through in co-op, it doesnt take itself to seriously.

Saint's Row 3 should be amazing!! But I want Red Faction back in first person :( I don't like Guerilla, the old Red Faction games were some of the most kickass FPS games to date IMO and I still play RF2 from time to time on my 360.
