If the rumors are true, THQ Nordic plans to announce new Darksiders and Destroy All Humans! games at E3 2019.
During THQ’s scandalous 8Chan AMA earlier this year, a company employee posted a screenshot of games the company allegedly planned to bring to E3 2019, including Destroy All Humans! and Darksiders: Genesis.

That a new Destroy All Humans! game is in development is wishful thinking – the fourth and most recent entry in the series, Path of the Furon, launched way back in 2008. But a recent discussion between THQ Nordic and GamingBolt gives the rumor a little more base.
Speaking to GamingBolt, THQ says it will bring two unannounced games to E3. The company describes one as a “new vision for a beloved franchise” and the other as the “long-awaited return of a galactically beloved game/franchise.”
That sounds like a new Destroy All Humans! game, alright.
“A new vision for a beloved franchise” likely describes a new Darksiders title, but it probably won’t be a mainline entry in the action/adventure series. Darksiders III, after all, only launched in November 2018. Additionally, each mainline entry uses Roman numerals in the title. The name “Darksiders: Genesis” suggests a departure from the core series. Perhaps it’s a mobile game. Maybe it’s a cart racer. Who knows?
Neither Sony nor Activision will have a major presence at E3 this year. Bethesda and Ubisoft will be, however, and here’s when you can watch the Xbox press conference.
