Posting on the Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition Steam discussion board, Nordic Games executive producer said the high-definition re-release was "just the start."
He continued: "Since we acquired the franchise we were looking for options for doing a Darksiders 3. The remaster was just a way to get some spotlight on the franchise again, reactivate the community and have a better starting position for Darksiders 3."
Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition was developed by Gunfire Games, a studio staffed "almost entirely" of people who worked on the first two Darksiders titles at original developer Vigil Games.
"Naturally (and extremely excitedly!), there will be a large-scale project based on Darksiders, but for now it is very important for us to take care of the existing games and make those available to a broader audience," the company said in a statement.
"Bringing Darksiders 2 to current gen was a logical step for us and the team at Gunfire Games know their trade inside-out, so we easily and quickly had lots of ideas that we wanted to realise for this specific edition."
