Wow. For some reason I think that if the series sold way more he wouldn't have left.

I hope the franchise continues. Who would like to see a more realistic looking Darksiders? Sort of more God Of War style? (2 completely different games, but people seem to tie the both, as did I for your reading pleasure :)

I suppose a realistic looking one couldn't hurt, as you can't try to imitate another artists work.

I'm pretty sure all the artwork he did while under contract belongs to the company and I am also sure that he didn't create everything by himself. So considering artwork Darksiders III should be safe.

Darksiders wouldn't have been so good without him. Love his art style. Battle Chasers anyone?

They kind of do it to themselves.

Darksiders just with the name/title alone, blends in with the other dishonored and killzone and other Death games.

They all look so similar at first glance, that I don't blame people. It wasn't until somebody mentioned Darksiders was like Legend of Zelda that I even looked into it. Never played it and probably won't but it's their own fault even if the game is good.
