A “contemporary route” for the Darksiders sequence is coming.
Because of a panel itemizing for the E3 2019 Coliseum schedule, we now know to count on a brand new Darksiders sport will probably be unveiled at E3 and guarantees to take the franchise in a “contemporary route.”
Set for Thursday, June 13, a panel titled “Darksiders: Motion Journey Developed” will probably be held at 10:30 am PT. The panel’s official description reads:
