Vigil Games have admitted that the future of the Darksiders franchise will be determined by the success of the upcoming Darksiders II.
"Absolutely [the future of Darksiders is dependent on this this sells]. We've got ideas for what we can do within the Darksiders universe, and it's a huge universe," Lead Developer Haydn Dalton told Strategy Informer. "We've got ideas for different types of games as well, we've got a lot of mechanical things that are the boil and are ready to go depending on how this sells.
"With the focus on DLC we want to sustain the amount of time people can spend playing Darksiders. Hopefully within that time we'll find how it's been received, how people are liking it, so a lot of our future as a games studio will be dependent on how this goes."
Darksiders II will release on PS3 and Xbox 360 on August 21st.
