THQ teases Darksiders 2 DLC as Joe Madureira exits Vigil Games

"A new adventure awaits Death!"

THQ has teased new Darksiders 2 downloadable content with an image and the tagline: "A new adventure awaits Death!"

The image popped up on the Darksiders Twitter page over the weekend.

The news comes as comic book legend Joe Madureira, who has played an integral role on the Darksiders series, announced his departure from developer Vigil Games after seven years.

"So long @Vigilgames @THQ," he tweeted. "Thanks for all the memories! @Darksiders was definitely a career highlight. Keep on kicking ass I'm a fan for life!"

Madureira, who as creative director designed much of the Darksiders world, elaborated on his Facebook page.

"Farewell and best wishes to all my brothers and sisters at Vigil Games!" he said. "After seven long years and two hit games (Darksiders BABY!) I'm afraid the time has come for me to move on to new adventures.

"I could not be more proud of what we achieved, or the awesome people who helped build up this studio. I can safely say Vigil's future is in very good hands, so expect only awesomeness down the road. This feels surreal... I miss the place already."

In the short term Madureira, who is best known for his run on The Uncanny X-Men, will return to comics. He will talk more about "the next big thing" in the coming months.
