Darksiders Genesis dev says Strife first-person shooter would be “a no brainer”

While speaking with Nintendo Everything, Darksiders Genesis developers Joe Madureira and Ryan Stefanelli have brought up another possible idea for the franchise: a first-person shooter. In fact, Madureira said that a new title in that genre featuring Strife would be “a no-brainer.”
Thus far, three main Darksiders games have been released that feature different characters from the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: War, Death, and Fury. Only Strife hasn’t been given his own starring role, though he’ll be properly introduced for the first time in Darksiders Genesis.
Stefanelli mentioned that “for Strife to get his own standalone game, at the very least, it’s going to have to be a first-person shooter of some sort.” Madureira also said that “the Darksiders franchise always makes bold moves,” before adding:
“I think it’s possible. Why not? If it makes sense for that game and that character and there’s a market for it, I think THQ’s probably crazy enough to try it. I will say they’ve been super supportive and will try it if it sounds cool. That is literally how this game (Darksiders Genesis) came to be.”
