When THQ went down, I hoped Darksiders would find a home ASAP. And although it wasn't one of the first IPs to go, it seems there's a serious bidder.
It's Crytek USA. According to studio CEO David Adams, who founded Darksiders developer Vigil Games, by the way, Crytek is going to bid on the successful franchise. Here's what Adams said on Twitter :
"Going to bid on Darksiders IP. Put seven years of heart and soul into that franchise, and I think it belongs at home with its creators."
Vigil and Darksiders have been floating out at sea since THQ started selling off their assets in January. Fortunately, Crytek opened up an American office – led by Adams and 35 other Vigil team members – and now it seems the series could be coming home. That'd be great, 'cuz I want a third title ASAP. If you didn't play last year's excellent Darksiders II , do yourself a favor and play it. It's just so much fun.
