During a recent Q&A with fans on his Facebook page, Madureira said, “DS is not dead!!! The new owner, Nordic seems very committed to continuing the series.

As far as my involvement, I can’t say at this point. Hopefully we will all have exciting news about the franchise soon!!!!!!”

The Austrian computer game publisher, Nordic Games GmbH also acquired the remaining properties still owned by THQ, including Red Faction, MX vs. ATV franchises, Supreme Commander, Frontlines, Stuntman, Juiced, Full Spectrum Warrior, Destroy All Humans and few more.

The publisher has yet to announce any formal plans for the future of the series.
