Nordic Games has announced that they have teamed up with Gunfire Games to bring us the Darksiders 2 “Deathinitive Edition,” which is essentially a remake of Darksiders 2 for Xbox One and PS4.
Since Gunfire Games is almost entirely composed of ex-Vigil Games developers who worked on the Darksiders games, it makes sense for Nordic to consult this small dev team for the remake. Nordic Games has mentioned that if they continue with the Darksiders franchise, it would need to be with the help of past Vigil Games employees to keep with the spirit of Darksiders and maintain the vision that the original creators intended for the series.
Although a remake of our beloved Darksiders 2 is nice an all, this has caused yet another surge of fans to inquire as to whether a third installment will be made. Many speculate that the reason for this next-gen remake is to prepare for Darksiders 3, which has yet to be confirmed. Fingers crossed!
