The webpage for Geoff Keighley's E3 Coliseum just leaked the existence of a new Darksiders game on its schedule page. The reveal is set for Thursday, June 13 in a special Darksiders panel.
The new Darksiders game will be announced at the Darksiders: Action Adventure Evolved panel which will talk both about the history of the Darksiders franchise, and its future. This is also the first mention of a new Darksiders game since Darksiders 3 was released last year.
Here's a full description of the Darksiders panel at the E3 Coliseum where the new game in the series will be revealed:
"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."
Darksiders 3 received a 70 on Metacritic, which is fine, all things considered. However, the Darksiders series as a whole has struggled to escape comparisons to other action-adventure games, particularly the 3D Legend of Zelda titles.
Still, the Darksiders franchise has its fans, and a new Darksiders game proves THQ Nordic is still interested in keeping the series running. The new Darksiders will be one of 80 games THQ Nordic currently has in development.
