The lights are on
The ex-Vigil staff at Crytek USA may get a chance to keep working on the franchise they created in their former lives under the THQ banner. Crytek will be bidding on the Darksiders intellectual property when it goes up for sale.
Crytek USA head David Adams tweeted, “Going to bid on Darksiders IP. Put 7 years of heart and soul into that franchise, and I think it belongs at home with its creators.” Destructoid confirmed the company’s interest with Vigil co-founder and Crytek USA principal designer Ryan Stefanelli, who said, “When the Darksiders IP goes up for auction, Crytek will be bidding for it.”
Vigil and the Darksiders franchise looked for a while to be the most tragic loss in the fallout of THQ’s bankruptcy and dissolution, but it looks like there may be hope yet for some of those who made the games and the fans who would love to see more.
That is great news.
AWWW YEAH!!! GO BACK TO WHERE YOU (Darksiders franchise) BELONG!!!! :D
I'm really glad to hear that. Was hoping someone would pick up the series and it's even better that it's ex-Vigil staff trying to get it.
Yes please! I need Darksiders 3 in my life!!
I hope they get it. I want more Darksiders!!
I've never M. Bison "YES"ed harder in my life.
YESYESYESYESYES. Darksiders 3 with 4 person co-op MUST HAPPEN.
This is amazing news! I was really really hoping someone would grab the IP, and the fact that it might be the original devs?! AMAZING. Any word on when it will go up for auction?
this makes me really happy and it gives me hope to see the franchise continue, I loved the darksiders games
This is some wonderful news. I hope all goes well with the bidding, and they get their property back.
Such amazing news! Come on Crytek, open up that check book! Hopefully they start working on Darksiders 3 if they win the auction.
Hopefully it gets picked up and a new game is made. I really enjoyed the 2nd game and would like to see more.
