After THQ went down, everyone wondered what would happen to great franchises like Darksiders .
Last year, the new owners – Nordic – said they fully intended to keep the IP alive, but they couldn't offer any further information. Now, we get a hint that perhaps Darksiders III could be in the works soon…
The clue comes from the creative director for the first two titles, Joe Madureira, who posted the following encouraging statement on his Facebook page :
"[Darksiders] is not dead!!! The new owner, Nordic seems very committed to continuing the series."
Nordic snagged quite a few THQ IPs in a $4.9 million auction last April. The company also owns Red Faction , MX vs. ATV , Full Spectrum Warrior and others. As for whether or not Maduriera will be involved with the third Darksiders :
" …I can't say at this point. Hopefully we will all have exciting news about the franchise soon!!!!!! "
Darksiders II was one of the absolute funnest games of the previous generation. If you haven't played it yet and you enjoy action/RPGs, you should definitely give it a shot.
