With the recent release of Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition for consoles and PC, publisher Nordic Games has taken to the Steam forums for the game to say just that -- Darksiders 3 is still very much on the cards. And cryptically hinting that work on the sequel could already be underway.
But that could just be me reading the quote more than a few times and inserting my own wish for this to be true. Mainly because the Darksiders games were awesome, and a third entry would not only finish and continue the story, but it would also fill the distinct lack of Legend of Zelda-style games that aren't Legend of Zelda.
Here's the post:
Darksiders 2 Deathinitive Edition was just the start. Since we acquired the franchise we were looking for options for doing a DS3. The remaster was just a way to get some spotlight on the franchise again, reactivate the community and have a better starting position for DS3.
Which kind of sounds like it's happening. And when you factor in that the Deathinitive Edition was developed by Gunfire Games, led by original Darksiders developer and Vigil co-founder David Adams, things are looking up for the four horsemen of the apocalypse.
