Darksiders 2: Deathfinitive Edition could lead to Darksiders 3

Darksiders 3 might still be coming

Darksiders 2: Deathfinitive Edition, which recently launched on PC, is not the sequel people were hoping for. It’s a relief, however, that Nordic Games is doing something with the IP, and, it turns out, this remastered version is also the first step in resurrecting the franchise. 

"Darksiders 2 Deathinitive Edition was just the start," executive producer Reinhard Pollice has explained on the Darksiders 2 Steam community forum. "Since we acquired the franchise we were looking for options for doing a DS3. The remaster was just a way to get some spotlight on the franchise again, reactivate the community and have a better starting position for DS3."

Of course, any new Darksiders would have to be made without the original team, who have since gone on to join other studios. And that’s a shame, because Vigil proved to be an ambitious developer, and its second game in the Darksiders series was a dramatic improvement over its already enjoyable predecessor. 

Along with Darksiders, Nordic Games also acquired Red Faction, Full Spectrum Warrior and Destroy All Humans from THQ. 

Cheers, PC Gamer.

There are a lot of bad reviews for it on steam, supposedly its worse than the standard version very unstable. Even With 80% off i dont think its worth it.

Loved War and Darksiders but DS2 was pretty meh The entire story could have been a 30 second cutscene "this is what Death was doing during Darksiders." Didn't really care for Death either.
