Darksiders ‘Is Not Dead’, Says Creative Director

According to creative director Joe Madureira, we may not have seen the last of Darksiders. Though his involvement with the potential sequel to Darksiders 2 is still uncertain, he’s confident Nordic Games is planning on continuing the series. 

“[Darksiders] is not dead!” Madureira said on on Facebook. “The new owner, Nordic seems very committed to continuing the series. As far as my involvement, I can’t say at this point. Hopefully we will all have exciting news about the franchise soon!”

The Darksiders IP was first owned by the now defunct THQ,which met its demise last year. Nordic Games acquired the rights to the series, along with Red Faction, MX vs ATV, and several other titles. Even though Madureira’s comments might hold some weight, Nordic Games isn’t exactly a developer. A proper studio needs to be approached, or assembled in order to kick start development on a new entry.
