Another day, another misquote. And this one does look like it's a problem for the media and not for the person - in this case THQ president Jason Rubin - saying the words.
In an interview with The Verge that we covered yesterday
, Rubin said: ďDarksiders III
is very interesting but I think I can get that team to make other very interesting games." We didn't bother too much about it given that any president is going to say that one of his teams is going to go on and make interesting games. Other sites decided this quote meant that Darksiders III
is in jeopardy.
Mr Rubin took to his company's website rather than to the media itself to clarify:
"A quote from a recent interview I did has been reported out of context by a number of news outlets. The quote implied that I am not enthusiastically behind the Darksiders
universe, and that THQ has made decisions not to continue the Darksiders franchise. This is simply untrue. My quote "I can get the team to make other interesting games" was intended in the context of having different teams within this incredibly talented studio work on new original IP, as well as continuing to support the Darksiders
"I enjoyed the original game when it came out, and one of my first tweets as President of THQ was "Best part of my new job at THQ? When the Darksiders II playable suddenly drops on my desk... @thq". Since that tweet I have been playing a lot of Darksiders II
and it is far better than the first. I'm incredibly excited about Vigil and the Darksiders
franchise. Keep your eyes peeled on Monday for an awesome new trailer that brings the world to life in a way you havenít seen before!"
