Gunfire Games’ Darksiders 3 released roughly one year ago and after supporting it with DLC, it seems the developer is moving on to bigger things. On its official website, the developer hiring for a combat designer to create combat that’s worthy of a “top of class AAA game”. Whether this is for Darksiders 4 or a completely new game is unknown.
What we do know is that the game will be developed on Unreal Engine 4. Though this is the same engine that Darksiders 3 uses, it wouldn’t be too odd to see Gunfire Games sticking with it out of familiarity (as seen with its Souls-like shooter Remnant: From the Ashes). Other requirements for the position include working with design leadership to “design, implement and polish compelling combat experiences”.
One must also be capable of creating combat that’s “compelling and balance” along with iterating and polishing the same. Given how important the combat sounds to the game’s vision, it could be a while before we see or hear anything concrete about it. If Darksiders 4 or even Remnant: From the Ashes 2 is in development, it’ll be interesting to see if it arrives for current-gen consoles or directly on next-gen.
In the meantime, Airship Syndicate’s Darksiders Genesis is out this week for PC and Google Stadia. Unlike its brethren, it’s an isometric hack and slash action title that place before the first game.
