Darksiders is a pretty cool franchise, I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with Darksiders 2 and I have enjoyed the very gameplay mechanics that existed within the game. Darksiders 2 was my first and only experience with the franchise and I was sad to know that there was no point in time in the forseeable future that we would be seeing a new entry in the franchise. This all come about as part of publisher THQ's closure. While I don't believe any of us thought the franchise would die out and it would live on in our memories it seemed unlikely the franchise would ever receive a Darksiders 3 as the franchise got thrown into limbo. In the case of a new Darksiders game it may be closer then expected, apparently Nordic games the new owners of the Darksiders franchise are now in talks with Vigil games to develop a new entry in the franchise. At this point in time there is nothing to confirm but hopefully in the future we will know something, hope lives.
Here is the statement by a Nordic Games representive:
“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. [We] will not settle for second-best solutions.”
- Nordic Games Representative
Hopefully we will see something soon and it would have the same greatness of Darksiders 2, hopefully soon.
