Darksiders 2 downloadable content continues to roll out, but series creative director Joe Madureira is leaving Vigil Games, the renowned comic artist announced on Facebook today.

“I'm afraid the time has come for me to move on to new adventures,” he said. “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.”

Madureira teased news about “the next big thing” in the “coming months,” but it’s unclear if it will again involve video games.

Just a few days back, the official Twitter account for Darksiders teased this image with the tagline: “A new adventure awaits Death!”
