Although not quite going as far as confirming that Darksiders 3 is officially in the works, series creative director Joe Madueira has told fans on the his Facebook page that the series' new rights holders, Nordic Games, looks to be committed to continuing the franchise.
Nordic picked up the rights to Darksiders early last year when THQ put its properties on sale as part of its bankruptcy process. The fledgling publisher paid a number of other properties, including Supreme Commander, Red Faction and MX vs. ATV for the incredibly low price of just $4.9 million, and looks intent on making use of its purchases sooner rather than later.
It's been almost two years since the last Darksiders game, which recieved strong praise from the gaming media and performed reasonably well commercially.
When asked about his involvement in any potential new game in the series, Madueira said:
As far as my involvement, I can't say at this point. Hopefully we will all have exciting news about the franchise soon!!!!!!
It's probably fair to say that, based on the amount of exclamation marks, he's excited about the prospect of a new installment!
