Joe Madureira who was the director of Darksiders have teased a new game. The title is in development at Madureira’s Airship Syndicate, a studio he formed after the demise of THQ and Vigil.
Madureira took to twitter to share the following tweets:

The sketch you see is of Simon Belmont from Castlevania, which according to Madureira is just something he did recently. However, he is excited to share what he is really working on. His tweet gave the impression that the sketch isn’t related to his new project, I don’t know why but the first thing I noticed was his whips.
That’s because one of the four horseman of the apocalypse is Fury, who also uses a whip as a weapon. It’s a long shot, but could this be a reference to Darksiders? That’s not all, in the second tweet, you can see a massive sword which resemble the War’s Sword from Darksiders. This again points to something Darksiders related.
Darksiders is now the property of Nordic Games and it’s possible the company will consider third party development for Darksiders 3. For that purpose, who fits better than Airship Syndicate who have worked on previous Darksiders games.
For now, we can only speculate but we will know for sure what the new game is on Thursday. So check back with us later for more on the story. You can also let us know of your take on the tease in the comments below.
