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 ?!

PockyKing1314d ago (Edited 1314d 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.

Ezz20131314d ago (Edited 1314d ago )

yeah either them or sony santa monica

i will be happy with both

rpd1231314d ago

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

WildArmed1313d 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.

showtimefolks1314d ago

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

LOGICWINS1314d ago

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

sinncross1314d 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.

stragomccloud1314d ago

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

stragomccloud1313d 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.

rdgneoz31313d 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 :<

Roccetarius1313d ago (Edited 1313d 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.

isarai1314d 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!!!

Mouktouk1314d ago

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

egidem1314d 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_2pacalypse1314d ago

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

MattyG1314d ago

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

DasBunker1314d ago

I read that with the RE merchants voice.
