Joe Madureira hints the story could continue prior to upcoming E3 events
Darksiders creator and former Marvel guy Joe Madureira posted a Q&A to his official Facebook page, where he hinted that Darksiders could make a triumphant return in the not too distant future.
Madureira posted the comments on his facebook page earlier this month to test the waters on generating some hype on a potential return for a third installment of the franchise. With E3 coming up next week fans could soon see if Nordic Games plans to go through with an installment to the series, or even have a background story ready for re-lease on the next Horseman to take up his reigns.
"[Darksiders] is not dead!!!" he wrote, with liberal use of the exclamation mark. "The new owner, Nordic seems very committed to continuing the series. As far as my involvement, I can't say at this point. Hopefully we will all have exciting news about the franchise soon!!!!!!"
!!!! What do you think, up for another Darksiders? Which of the four horsemen could you see yourself playing as this time around?

Gameinformer interviewed Nordic Games' product development director Reinhart Pollice at the last Gamescom, and asked if it would be possible to continue the series without Madureira's involvement. Pollice said that while it would be possible to continue the series, since it's already been defined, ideally he would like to work with Madureira if they did decide to start working on a third entry.
As part of the final round of the THQ auctions last year, Darksiders was acquired by Nordic Games, which also purchased the rights to more than 150 games at the time.
The second and latest installment in the series launched in 2012 on PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii U.
