Darksiders is not dead, says series' creative director as he drops hints for Darksiders 3

Joe Mad says Darksiders owners Nordic Games "seems very committed to continuing the series."


Darksiders II

The creative director for Darksiders and Darksiders II, Joe Madureira, has hinted that the series may live on.

Answering questions from fans on his Facebook page, the comic book artist turned his attentions to THQ's Horsemen-based adventure. "[Darksiders] is not dead!!! The new owner, Nordic seems very committed to continuing the series," Madureira exclaimed.

Nordic scooped up a bevy of THQ properties in a $4.9 million job lot auction back in April 2013. Alongside Darksiders, the Swedish company now owns the rights to Red Faction, MX vs. ATV, Supreme Commander, Full Spectrum Warrior, and more.

Is Maduriera working on Darksiders 3, then? "As far as my involvement, I can't say at this point. Hopefully we will all have exciting news about the franchise soon!!!!!!" In May last year, Madureira spoke about the original vision for the third Darksiders title.

The last entry in the series--for now, at least--was Darksiders II, which was released back in 2012. If the series was to return, it almost certainly wouldn't be helmed by its original developer Vigil Games. After THQ went bankrupt, Crytek acquired key staff to form Crytek USA.
