there will be no darksiders III. crytek doesnt want them making more darksiders. they are however letting them create a new IP that they themselves design from the ground up. so expect something but not darksiders. we have no idea what that something is but it will be "radically different"

best of luck with the new Ip though

Fine. They don't need the Darksiders IP to make a Zelda/Metroidvania game. I bet the new IP isn't one of those, but they can always revisit the genre in the future.

Just like Free Radical (now Crytek UK) and TimeSplitters.

It's probably a continuation of that Crawler project they were working on.

Still have to play Darksiders but I probably won't enjoy them so I'm looking forward to their new IP.

Wish I could have played through Darksiders. I had the free version downloaded on PS3 but my PS Plus membership ran out before I could play it.

Not hate, just get really bored with them. I've tried to like them but it never comes to me. Zelda's music is fantastic though.

Darksiders was never really that good anyway.

i had fun and thought the 1st one somewhat challenging on harder settings its also the BEST game to break your friends pleb console with thanks to the enemy spawn glitches

Away with you. :evil:

Well that's kinda sad to hear. I am currently playing through the first Darksiders and loving it. Got it free on PS+ and like it enough to plan on buying both 1 and 2 on PC.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! The end of Darksiders was such a dick tease.

We'll never get Darksiders 3 with 4-player co-op like it was planned to now. :(

#25 Posted by Cherokee_Jack (32198 posts) -

I don't understand this demand for co-op.

It might have been cool if you like that sort of thing, but wasn't Darksiders fun as a single-player game? Without the ending, would you really say "This game would be way better if 3 of my bros were solvin' puzzles with me!"

#26 Posted by with_teeth26 (6187 posts) -

at least the series ended on a high note. 

wonder what the new IP will be

#27 Posted by PatchMaster (6013 posts) -

Disappointed, but it's understandable.

 

Guess I'll just be positive (if that's allowed in SW) and anticipate their new IP.

#28 Posted by BattleSpectre (6227 posts) -

Never played a Dark Siders game so can't pass judgment on that, but i'm interested in this new IP they speak of..

#29 Posted by ChubbyGuy40 (26185 posts) -

Cherokee_Jack

I think we need more co-op games. Stuff that gives us good multiplayer content instead of generic horde crap. An action-adventure game like Darksiders with co-op has potential IMO.

Yeah, like I said, it could have been good. I just think the backlash against Darksiders 2 for not having co-op was really weird and unfair.
#31 Posted by PatchMaster (6013 posts) -

I'm sure it's only a matter of time before someone makes a Borderlands-esque game with Darksiders style combat. Too bad it won't be Vigil :(

#32 Posted by ristactionjakso (5730 posts) -

That's to bad. I wanted DS 3.

I hope the new IP they make, earns them a surplus of money so that one day they can make a DS3.

#33 Posted by AM-Gamer (4033 posts) -

Sell the ip to Platnum so I can finish the series , I want to play as the other horseman.

Wait...who backlashed against 2 for that reason? That's stupid.

What's so terrible about this? How do people expect to progress the industry if dev teams are constantly forced to making sequels and spinoffs?

Because like it or not, without sequels, the industry wouldn't be moving either.

Need a fair share of new, and a fair share of familiarity.

My point is, the industry is already saturated with sequels.
#38 Posted by zeeshanhaider (2603 posts) -

Yup, a GoW style game on CE3, now that's what I'm waiting for.

Literally first time I've heard anyone say that

well bet its another fps, considering cryteks a one trick pony. honestly, they throw away timesplitters and put free radical to work on crysis 2 mp and then homefront 2......honestly i think someone needs to slap Cervat Yerli.

To think I thought Crytek having the TS franchise was a good idea. :(
#43 Posted by zeeshanhaider (2603 posts) -

All you guys are acting up as if Crytek owns the Darksiders IP while that's not the case. It's obvious whatever the new studio do would be a new IP.

#44 Posted by Stringerboy (7085 posts) -

I'm very disappointed. Loved Darksiders 1 and 2.

#45 Posted by dobzilian (2490 posts) -
A unfinished series. Noooooo...
#46 Posted by Supabul (3863 posts) -

And I was hoping Darksiders 3 would be about Strife and Darksiders 4 Fury

Crytek is letting them do their own project. They aren't forcing anything on them. If what they wanted to work on was an FPS, so be it.

But keeping Crytek's strategy in mind, it could as well be F2P.

To be fair, Darksiders was a running saga building up to some kind of climactic final battle against the series villains...which we now might not ever see.

So yeah, it's a tad disappointing. Also, the second game did make some pretty nice leaps away from the first, and each Horseman's gameplay styles could easily have been completely different, so the series need not have stagnated. Ah well.

Might as well ask Sony Santa Monica to make Darsiders 3 since they also hired ex-Vigil devs, may be they will hear your plea. :roll:
