All we have for you this time is a rumor and a hope, but for action-adventure fans, it could be just the thing to look forward to. Darksiders, the apocalyptic (literally, as you play as one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse) video game IP developed by Vigil Games, has fallen into uncertain territory since the dissolution of its publisher, THQ. Darksiders was one of the many properties bought by Nordic Games.
This could have meant the end for the series, but its former creative director, Joe Madureira, came out today saying it is “not dead” and Nordic is “very committed to continuing the series.” While he isn’t sure he’d be involved with a third game, he joins fans in hoping for “exciting news.”
Of course, since he isn’t involved with the series currently, we can’t take this as confirmation of a Darksiders III. However, since he says Nordic Games is interested, we’ll take it as a credible rumor. Since Darksiders appeared on the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC, and Darksiders II was for the Xbox 360, PS3, PC, and Wii U, we would definitely expect the hypothetical Darksiders III to reach the Xbox One and PS4.
While we wait for something more concrete, share your impressions of the series and your hopes for what a future game would involve.
