Yesterday, artist Joe ‘Mad’ Madureira took to his Facebook page to announce that Darksiders is not dead. The creative director and writer of the original Darksiders game posted:
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!!!!!!
After much fan speculation Nordic Games, who bought the rights to the Darksiders franchise from THQ in April 2013, released their own statement to clarify all the rumours.
