Darksiders designer Joe Madureira that the fantasy action series was not dead, and it seems like he was talking sense. IP owners Nordic Games have responded by confirming that they are working on reviving the franchise, though it might be a while before we see it return.
Speaking “With regards to Darksiders 3: of course we’ve always been busy in the background, talking to a lot of former team members about a continuation of the series, but we are not ready to announce anything officially. Joe Madureira is spot on in saying that DS is not dead and we are committed, though.”, Nordic released the following statement.
“Before we can say something about the ‘how’ and ‘when’ of publishing/financing the sequel is concerned, we are still busy in properly figuring out the ‘who’ part of this large-scale project. All I can say is that we can and will not settle for second-best solutions in the case of Darksiders.”
So, things are looking pretty promising for fans of the franchise in the long-term. We'll keep an eye out for any further updates.
