A lot of people are going to just brush this off by saying Darksiders is dead as a franchise now and such, without giving them a chance. It's better than EA or Activision getting it by far. While Nordic Games doesn't have an amazing track record, I think they have the potential to continue the franchise, along with some of the other franchises they own now.

At least it's still alive in some form is the way I see it. I absolutely love Darksiders, and whilst I loved the second one, the first one was a smaller and more targeted game, with a better narrative. I'd bet that it would cost them less to make a third game like that, rather than going for bigger and bigger like Darksiders 2 tried.

Well it is great news they're continuing the series, but if the next DarkSiders isnt as well made as the first two or doesnt stay true to the series then it was better off dying with Vigil Games

Im skeptical he isnt phrasing it like they are gonna finish it but more like a statement. This is a C tier publisher with neither the man power nor the money to give this a proper sequel. If you look at their list of published and developed games you will see that.

The franchise is dead because now a below average publisher owns the rights

majiebeast1132d ago (Edited 1132d ago )

Yeah its about on par as if Gameloft got the rights. Worst case scenario happend Gearbox got Homeworld and some unknown publisher bought a shit ton of IP's for legacy sales(5-15$ bargain bin games for years to come)

All these IP's are in the casket except they havent been put under the ground yet.

Wow, way to keep the spirit alive guys. Great attitude to have for gamers. Publishers and developers love to hear that, as I'm sure the indie scene would too. Maybe I should copy and paste this to every indie dev out there and say "don't bother, these gamers don't think that growth is possible and thus you just don't have what it takes."

You've done a service to gaming today.

I enjoyed Darksiders 1 and 2, so I'll be optimistic about its future. I kind of wish someone else would have picked up the franchise, but I'll reserve judgement.

Nordic games was called JoWooD, anyone with some knowledge of last decade's B and C tier PC games should have known, the Darksiders series is indeed dead.

KongRudi1132d ago

Nordic Games bought up JoWooD and Adventure Company, and it's properties, it's a new company not the same, I think.

The devs NG are working with is different I believe.

The Farm 51 seems to have some talented people. Did some outsourced work on The Witcher games before they've grown enough to start their own stuff.

Will be interesting to see how Deadfall Adventures turns out in June.

Hopefully, they manage to put together a few studios who can follow up Darksiders success.
Seems they plan to try atleast. :)
