Decorated graphic novel illustrator and Darksiders designer Joe Madureira posted a few words to his Facebook fan page
recently decrying that the adventure RPG franchise is not dead and buried:
Darksiders-- DS is not dead!!! 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!!!!!!
European publisher Nordic Games aquired the Darksiders franchise rights during the THQ bankruptcy sale and has expressed interest in making more games in the series, but not confirmed anything.
