THQ Nordic and Gunfire Games have announced that a third Darksiders game is currently in development and will release sometime in 2018 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Similarly to previous games in the series, Darksiders 3 will be an open-world action-adventure with a focus on exploration and environmental puzzles, and will feature the familiar hack and clash combat the series is known for.
Set around the same time as Darksiders 2, the new game will let players take control of new protagonist Fury, following his quest to destroy the physical manifestations of the Seven Deadly Sins.
The game’s development studio, Gunfire Games, is made up of multiple ex-Vigil Games employees who worked on the previous Darksiders games. The studio was formed in 201 and has worked on Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition and the VR title Chronos.
“After countless rumors, a major catalogue acquisition, and even a corporate re-brand, the team at THQ Nordic is thrilled to finally confirm plans for Darksiders III,” said Lars Wingefors, Co-Founder and Group CEO at THQ Nordic AB.
