Darksiders II remaster meant to create 'better starting position' for Darksiders III


Definitely not #Darksiders2

Although it doesn't really add anything new, I really enjoyed playing through Darksiders II again with the new Deathinitive Edition. But it appears as if the remaster is being used for a higher purpose -- re-igniting interest for Darksiders III.

According to a post from a developer by way of the Steam forums, "Deathinitive Edition was just the start." The post goes on to state, "we were looking for options for doing a DS3. The remaster was just a way to get some spotlight on the franchise again, reactivate the community and have a better starting position for DS3."

It sounds like all is going according to plan so far. I'm a big proponent of more Darksiders, and I've love to see the story conclude one day. It would be a long time in the making, but if it happens at all, that's fine with me.
