Darksiders is "not dead," creative director assures fans

Joe Madureira, creative director for the first two Darksiders games, has assured fans that the series will continue.

While answering fan questions on his Facebook page, he stated the following: "[Darksiders] is not dead!!! The new owner, Nordic seems very committed to continuing the series."

Nordic acquired the Darksiders franchise when it won the THQ auction in April 2013. The Swedish company now also owns the rights to Red Faction, MX vs. ATV, Supreme Commander, and Full Spectrum Warrior, among others.

Madureira couldn't confirm whether the game was in development yet. "As far as my involvement," he said, "I can't say at this point. Hopefully we will all have exciting news about the franchise soon!!!!!!"
