Vigil Had Hoped to Make Darksiders III

OnlySP writes: Sigh, today’s a rather gloomy day in the gaming industry. Long time publisher THQ has been shut down, its assets sold and auctioned off to all new publishers, but one, one very important developer was left behind to die with THQ. Vigil Games.

who you guys think should buy it ?!

PockyKing1277d ago (Edited 1277d ago )

Keep changing my mind on this ha. Can't decide who I'd like the IP to go to, I just hope there's another Darksiders sequel some day because really enjoyed Darksiders II.

Ezz20131277d ago (Edited 1277d ago )

yeah either them or sony santa monica

i will be happy with both

rpd1231277d ago

I don't care, as long as they stay true to the style and gameplay that Darksiders has already.

WildArmed1277d ago

Likewise, I was hoping Vigil would be kept on for Darksiders. It is their child after all, it's hard to establish a new IP this gen. Not to mention a H&S RPG IP.

showtimefolks1277d ago

i see one of the console makers buying this. i hope its sony but i doubt it

LOGICWINS1277d ago

Actually, I can see Sony being interested in buying it.

sinncross1277d ago

I would personally be ok with Sony and incorporating them into SCEA. Working alongside the likes of Naughty Dog, Santa Monica etc would be great for everyone.

I think the sort of expertise Vigil can bring to the table will in fact expand Sony's American division as opposed to Vigil being eaten up.

stragomccloud1277d ago

Even Sony's devs don't really work together though.

stragomccloud1277d ago

I can't believe I got so many disagrees. It's true though. Despite all being under Sony, their developers more or less work independently. They are also given an enormous amount of freedom which is why the games lineup is so diverse.

rdgneoz31277d ago

@stragomccloud Look at the credits for some Sony games, you'll see several other Sony devs and a few other devs listed. They may do their own thing, but they helped each other out at times with concepts or different tech ideas.

I guess this is one of them moments in life that just sucks. I was really hoping for someone to pick up the Darksiders IP from THQ...even if that someone were EA.

I loved the first Darksiders (War was awesomely badass) and hoped for a sequel. Darksiders 2 came along and it was also awesome...can I hope for a third one...please??

I'm more disappointed about the Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millennium that they were working on being lost :<

Roccetarius1277d ago (Edited 1277d ago )

Platinum Games would be the only ones to do it justice. No exclusive company should buy this, that means Nintendo, MS and Sony.

It should be available to all.

Personally i liked the first game better, because i didn't like some of the features DS2 had.

In all fairness, I really thought Warner Bros. would be a great fit for Darksiders.

isarai1277d ago

Yeah, now that i think about it this would be a damn fine fit. I think Square might be a good canidadate aswell though, they've been doing a pretty good job as a publisher lately

4 player co-op...SOMEONE BUY THEM RIGHT NAAAAAOOOOW!!!

Mouktouk1277d ago

I'm sorry but Darksiders is definitely not the kind of game where multiplayer may work.

egidem1277d ago

As much as multiplayer is the norm these days, there are some games that are just better left off as single player games and lose some balance the moment multiplayer is introduced e.g.: Dead Space franchise.

I'd rather have Darksiders remaing single player instead.

da_2pacalypse1277d ago

I'd buy it. I'd buy 10 copies if they announced it right now.

MattyG1277d ago

Platinum games said they'd buy it for the right price.

DasBunker1277d ago

I read that with the RE merchants voice.
