Darksiders isn't dead, and new IP owner Nordic Games is committed to the franchise, according to series designer Joe Madureira. The publisher has also responded with its own threadbare statement,
UPDATE: In a statement sent to RPS, Nordic Games said, "With regards to Darksiders 3: of course we’ve always been busy in the background, talking to a lot of former team members about a continuation of the series, but we are not ready to announce anything officially. Joe Madureira is spot on in saying that DS is not dead and we are committed, though.”
“Before we can say something about the ‘how’ and ‘when’ of publishing/financing the sequel is concerned, we are still busy in properly figuring out the ‘who’ part of this large-scale project. All I can say is that we can and will not settle for second-best solutions in the case of Darksiders.”
Well, it's much better than a standard 'no comment' boilerplate. We're sick of those.
ORIGINAL STORY: Over on Facebook, Madureira responded to questions regarding the status of Darksiders, stating, "Darksiders-- DS is not dead!!! The new owner, Nordic seems very committed to continuing the series. As far as my involvement, I can't say at this point. Hopefully we will all have exciting news about the franchise soon!!!!!!"
Last we heard back in August, Nordic Games was still planning what to do with Darksiders.
