Darksiders creator Joe Madureira and Vigil co-founder Ryan Stefanelli have confirmed a Battle Chasers game and a new comic are in the works at their new studio Airship Syndicate.

Speaking to Polygon, Madureira and Stefanelli wouldn’t provide details on the the game, but did divulge it will be an adventure RPG with player-controlled Battle Chasers characters such as Calibretto, Garrison and Gully.

“Even though the game mechanically is going to be very different from Darksiders, I think we’re still really going to be doing everything we can to make sure that the dungeon exploration side of the game is soaked with lots of fun adventurous elements,” said Stefanelli.

Madureira said he wants to give the comic an overhaul in both visuals and story, as his personal style has evolved over the years.

The comic is without a publisher or release date as of yet, but Madureira is considering three-issue arcs with the first taking up where the first series left off in 2001.

At the moment, the studio is looking into funding for the Battle Chasers game and it is currently slated for PC and consoles. A tablet version under consideration.
