Darksiders II lead developer Haydn Dalton’s made it clear that the future of the franchise depends on how well its upcoming game performs commercially.

Speaking to Strategy Informer, Dalton conceded that the studio’s future was dependent on Darksiders II sales.

“Absolutely [the future of Darksiders is dependent on how this sells]. We’ve got ideas for what we can do within the Darksiders universe, and it’s a huge universe. We’ve got ideas for different types of games as well. We’ve got a lot of mechanical things that are the boil and are ready to go depending on how this sells.

“With the focus on DLC we want to sustain the amount of time people can spend playing Darksiders.

“Hopefully within that time we’ll find how it’s been received, how people are liking it, so a lot of our future as a games studio will be dependent on how this goes.”

Darksiders II releases on August 14 in the US and August 21 in Europe for PS3 and Xbox 360. A Wii U version is also in development.
