Darksiders is a series of action-adventure video games based around the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse from the last book of the New Testament of the Bible, called the Book of Revelation.
The series was developed by Vigil Games and published by THQ, the latter stating there would be a series of games. Darksiders was released in January 2010 with Darksiders II being released in August 2012. In February 2013, however, THQ was forced to sell its remaining assets after filing bankruptcy with the Darksiders franchise being purchased by Nordic Games in April 2013.
The new owner proceeded to create a forum page that asks fans for their thoughts on the first two games, so as to get a clear idea of what people would like to see in a new game. A producer of Nordic Games, Reinhard Pollice, stated that "One thing is for sure: The tale of the four horsemen is not over !".
On 12 August 2016, Nordic Games announced that it had changed its name to THQ Nordic.
