Analyst: THQ disappointed in Darksiders

Game fails to turn heads

A leading industry analyst has questioned the success of THQ's first release of the year, the new IP, Darksiders.

Signal Hill's Todd Greenwald told Gamasutra that Darksiders had failed to give any kind of results on the considerable investment they had put into it.

Greenwald said: "Darksiders didn't perform up to THQ's expectations, likely selling less than 1 million units despite heavy marketing dollars, 2-3 years of development costs, and was also subject to discounting just 2 weeks after its release."

Darksiders did have a difficult time though, being released in the first week of January alongside Sega's monster Bayonetta.
