One of the team from Nordic Games, the company than acquired the rights and most of the developers of the Darksiders franchise, have commented on Steam about the possibility of a true sequel.
To their credit Nordic have been very activate on the Steam forums, chatting with fans and keeping them all updated on what fixes are being worked on.
In one of the discussion Nordic member MegalomaniacNG commented that, “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.”
It isn’t the first time the company have confirmed that they are interested in doing a sequel, but thus far nothing concrete has been announced.
The release of the Darksiders II: Deathfinitive Edition (review coming soon) has seen some controversey, as the upgraded edition was offered to owners of the Franchise Pack on Steam for free, while people who bought the core Darksiders and Darksiders II games on day didn’t, leaving them feeling like despite Nordic saying they wanted to give the new edition to “loyal” fans for free they, as loyal fans, were being overlooked. To counter this Nordic offered that anyone who could prove they own Darksiders II and the season pass or all the DLC included with the season could Email them and claim a free upgrade.
As a huge lover of Darksiders II the possibility of finally seeing a sequel excites me greatly.
