THQ Nordic announced today that they are working on the next entry in the pseudo-biblical apocalypse franchise: Darksiders.
“As promised, we have taken our time to ensure that this next Darksiders will be everything action-adventure gamers and especially Darksiders loyalists could dream of and more,” said Lars Wingefors, Co-Founder and Group CEO, THQ Nordic AB.
THQ Nordic is working with Gunfire Games to bring Darksiders 3 to life. The team at Gunfire Games is largely made up of the creators of the original Darksiders.
“The Gunfire team brings an intimate involvement with every aspect of the Darksiders franchise since its inception,” said Reinhard Pollice, Director of Business and Product Development, THQ Nordic. “There is simply no team better qualified to create Darksiders III, beginning with our unpredictable and enigmatic hero FURY – a mage who is considered the most powerful of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse!”
Darksiders 3 is slated for release on PS4 sometime in 2018.
