Darksiders owner Nordic Games has entered discussion with former Vigil Games members about the prospect of developing a third Darksiders title, but isn't yet ready to say how or when the game may come together.

"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," Nordic told Rock Paper Shotgun. "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."

Nordic's comments follow a tease from creative director Joe Madureira yesterday, who said that he hopes to see "exciting news about the franchise soon".

Nordic picked up the rights to Darksiders last year following THQ's collapse, later releasing a compilation of the original two games. Vigil Games disbanded in January 2013, with many employees going on to work for Crytek USA.
