    A Nordic Games representative told Rock Paper Shotgun that the company isn't yet ready to announce a new entry in the series, but that it's exploring putting together a team for the project.

    "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," they said, "but we are not ready to announce anything officially."

    The rep also said Nordic "will not settle for second-best solutions" in the case of Darksiders. "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."

    Former Vigil Games creative director Joe Madureira, who is also well known for his work as a comic book artist, recently said that Nordic "seems very committed to continuing the series".

    The Nordic rep added: "Joe Madureira is spot on in saying that DS is not dead and we are committed."

    Nordic Games acquired the Darksiders rights during THQ's bankruptcy sale in April 2013, along with a number of other properties.

    At the time, Nordic Games CEO Lars Wingefors said the company had been approached by parties interested in developing new entries in the franchises it had acquired, but that he was in no rush to put out "a shitty sequel".

    A number of staff from former Darksiders studio Vigil - which THQ failed to auction off - were recruited by Crytek and are now employed at its Austin, Texas-based studio.
