Darksiders Creator Teases New Game Announcement With New Studio

Joe Madureira, the creator and director of the Darksiders games, formed Airship Syndicate following the collapse of THQ and Vigil Games. He and his new team is preparing to announce something.

Madureira tweeted out the image you see above writing, "Looks like there's a storm coming," alongside hashtags like #DyingToTellYou. He followed up that tweet saying that some kind of announcement will be happening in the next few days. Those tweets were on Friday, February 20.

Madureira and other former Vigil members like Ryan Stefanelli, who served as producer for Darksiders II, announced the formation of Airship Synidicate back in September of last year. You can read an interview with Madureira and Stefanelli about the formation of the new studio by heading here.

Additionally, this doesn't appear to have anything to do with whatever Madureira and Airship Syndicate are working on, but he recently posted this very cool Castlevania tribute piece.

Our Take
Some are speculating the image is teasing something related to Battle Chasers, the comic book series Joe Madureira made a name for himself with, but never actually completed. He abandoned the series in 2001 after nine issues to pursue a career in video game design. Frankly, I am up for whatever from Madureira and Stefanelli. I'm a big fan of Darksiders and am excited to see what that creative team does next.
