Though the reveal was leaked this morning by an early Amazon Listing, THQ Nordic and Gunfire Games have now officially announced their upcoming title, Darksiders III. The next entry in the Darksiders franchise will, in fact, release sometime in 2018 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The first details and trailer were revealed by IGN, as Darksiders III is their IGN First title for May.
This entry will take place “around the same time as the events of Darksiders 2, which was released 5 years ago, and will follow Fury’s quest to destroy unique physical versions of the Seven Deadly Sins.” Also mentioned in the IGN First article is that many ex-Vigil Games employees who have worked on the previous two games will be returning, including the Game Director and Executive Producer. Gunfire Games was founded in 2014 and worked on Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition and Chronos.
As mentioned previously, Darksiders III is the IGN First for the entire month of May, meaning there will be a ton more coverage throughout the next few weeks. For now, just enjoy your first look below, and stay tuned for much more on Darksiders III.
