The lights are on
Back in April, Nordic Games walked away from the second THQ intellectual property auction $4.9 million poorer, but dozens of properties richer. Included in the publisher's haul are Darksiders, Titan Quest, and the console distribution rights to two Double Fine digital titles (Costume Quest and Stacking). We caught up with business and product development director Reinhart Pollice at Gamescom to talk about the publisher's plans.Included in our conversation is hope for Darksiders fans, an explanation of the ongoing conversation with Double Fine, and the company's view on selling off pieces of its acquistion. Be sure to read up on Nordic Games, the properties it acquired from THQ, and our reaction to the purchase.

I hope if they do Darksiders, they do it right. If they can't do it right, I'd rather let it go down with THQ.
Darksiders 3 please.
As long as Darksiders ends up in a good home, I'll be happy.
These guys sound like they actually know what they're doing, plus it's nice to hear they've actually got fans of the IPs in their management.
The first Darksiders was a really good, underrated game. I don't really like where the second went. It was okay, a 6 or 6.5, but I think it tried to do a little too much and ventured too far from what made the first great. I'm really hoping for a 4 player co op 4 horsemen game for 3 if it comes out.
They said all the right things, but I never heard them commit to a Darksiders 3.
darksiders needs a good developer who can bring good games with a new engin while keeping the soul of the serie. i really hope it happens, i love this serie and i own both games. i dont know why japanese developers such as platinum, konami or namco didnt jump on this license. whatever they do with it, please just give us a follow up, im tired of broken ending that leave u with more questions than answers and with an unsatisfied feeling.
Very simple to say. Make Darksiders 3 then make the 4th co-op. Finish the story first theeen add co-op. Remember there are 4 Horseman. So finish the story
Not entirely surprised by Tim Schafer opening his mouth before even talking to these guys. I like many of the games that he creates, but he's a lot like Gabe Newell when it comes to opening mouth and inserting foot.
Want Darksiders 3, loved the first 2.
Darksiders was alright.
Still it was waaaay to easy to compare to the best action games out there. After a while it just becomes a chore to beat.
All I can say is that these guys better not destroy the Darksiders franchise. Those games are beast and it would be a shame to see the franchise scrapped.
