THQ Nordic today announced that hack-n-slash action adventure Darksiders III is currently in development for PC, PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, and is slated for release in 2018.
“As promised, we have taken our time to ensure that this next Darksiders will be everything action-adventure gamers and especially Darksiders loyalists could dream of and more,” said Lars Wingefors, Co-Founder and Group CEO, THQ Nordic AB.
The company also announced that it is working with the team at Gunfire Games, which is largely comprised of the original creators of the Darksiders franchise, on the development of the long and highly-anticipated project.
“The Gunfire team brings an intimate involvement with every aspect of the Darksiders franchise since its inception,” said Reinhard Pollice, Director of Business and Product Development, THQ Nordic. “There is simply no team better qualified to create Darksiders III, beginning with our unpredictable and enigmatic hero FURY – a mage who is considered the most powerful of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse!”
This news is fantastic as the Darksiders series has always been an outstanding series filled with memorable locales, imaginative characters, and a robust battle mechanic. Now that Fury has been unveiled in all her glory all that remains to ask, where is the final Apocalyptic sibling?
