Crytek USA wants to buy Darksiders IP
New CEO and former Vigil founder David Adams says he plans to bid on the franchise; "I think it belongs at home with its creators."
New Crytek USA CEO David Adams, who founded Vigil Games, wants to buy the Darksiders franchise from THQ. Writing on Twitter, Adams said the IP should stay with its makers.
"Going to bid on Darksiders IP," Adams wrote. "Put seven years of heart and soul into that franchise, and I think it belongs at home with its creators."
Vigil Games and the Darksiders series found no bidder during the THQ auction in January and thus the studio was closed and the future of the franchise left in limbo.
Some resolution came to light later in the month, when Crytek announced the formation of an American office led by Adams and 35 other Vigil Games developers. At the time, however, Crytek said its new North American office would not develop any new Darksiders games.
Darksiders II launched this summer behind a positive critical reception.
