Both the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game are out this upcoming Tuesday.

Now that the PC version is confirmed, we will be awaiting news on if the next-gen versions have a chance at being made. From Software has already stated that the game engine was built for next-gen consoles, so this announcement will most likely come later this year. Stay tuned for more on Dark Soul II as we will be making a special announcement regarding the game early next week.
