Darksiders 3 was released last year to mixed reception, with some reviewers really liking it while others pinned the game down as being ‘laclustre’. Despite not being a smash hit, it was still a financial success and we all know what that means – more Darksiders games.
According to a panel listing for the E3 2019 Coliseum schedule, a new Darksiders game will be announced at E3 and it promises to take the franchise in a “fresh direction”. The panel will take place on June 13 and is titled Darksiders: Action Adventure Evolved.
The panel’s official description reads,
A discussion about the inception of the Darksiders universe and where it’s headed next. This panel will coincide with the E3 2019 unveil of a brand new Darksiders game that takes the franchise in a fresh direction. This is a panel discussion about the art and business of creating and maintaining an action adventure franchise rich in-game and corporate lore.
Where exactly that ‘fresh direction’ leads is anyone’s guess. It could be anything from a new genre for the franchise, or a game that will add a twist into the lore of the game that centres around the Horsemen of the Apocalypse and a war between Heaven and Hell.
At least we won’t have to wait too long to find out more about the new Darksiders game.
