Darksiders II might be on the way to the PS4

Is THQ’s second romp through the apocalypse current-gen bound?

It just could be, as a leaked (or just posted early, however you want to look at it) Amazon.com listing has shown. The listing, picked up by website AllGamesBeta, shows a Darksiders II: Definitive Edition for the PS4 and with a nebulous street date of December 31st, 2015. Along with that were posted a few other titles like MX vs. ATV Supercross Encore Edition and The Book of Unwritten Tales 2, all with the same placeholder release dates.

Re-releasing games onto current generation consoles has been pretty common here in the early goings of the PS4/Xbox One era, and it isn’t too unlikely that a similar fate might be in store for Darksiders II. The Death-starring sequel to the very well-received original was critically praised, and a remake might be just what the doctor ordered to get the series fresh in gamer’s minds before a new sequel arrives.

Of course, there’s nary a rumor to suggest that new publisher Nordic is doing anything with the franchise in terms of new stuff, but if a re-release turns out to be true, then we just might be in store for more adventures in the burning Earth after all.

  1. Surely Darksiders II has been out for that long and gone through that many sales that pretty much everyone who wants to play it has by now.

  2. You would think, and yet… I’m just guessing at that they want to see if there’s any interest before committing to another one.
