New Darksiders and Destroy All Humans games look set for E3.
Internet sleuths aligned an image showing THQ Nordic's E3 lineup with comments made by the company's boss to deduce the titles the company is set to announce.
During THQ Nordiq's ill-fated 8Chan AMA, an image was uploaded by an employee of the company showing a list of games to be shown at E3 in June. On the list was Destroy All Humans and Darksiders: Genesis.
Twitter user Afro_Gear took a screenshot of this image back in February.

In discussing its E3 plans with AllGamers, THQ Nordic teased it had two unannounced games to reveal at the show. It described one as a remake and the "long-awaited return of a galactically beloved game/franchise", and the other as a "new vision of a beloved game/franchise". Destroy All Humans and Darksiders certainly fit those descriptions, respectively.
Destroy All Humans has been dormant since 2008's Destroy All Humans! Path of the Furon. This new remaster may be designed to prime the franchise and fans for a new mainline entry in the series, as THQ Nordic did with Darksiders.
Speaking of Darksiders, news of a new title in the hack and slash series comes half a year after the release of Darksiders 3. Could this new Darksiders be a spin-off in a different genre?
Expect more on 10th June.
