Amidst the smoke, rubble and blood that was the THQ auction , one curious property remains unsold. Many are left wondering…why?
Darksiders 2 was a great game. This is sad news.
Someone from Naughty Dog tweeted to them saying there were opening in their studio. That would awesome to see these guys go there. Besides, I was hoping to see Darksiders 3 feature Strife.
#3 was supposed to have all the horsemen and 4 player co-op.
That sucks... This is the one I was hoping would find a home... Damn...
Well lets face it, it never sold very well.Obviously people aren't clamoring for it as much as people thought they would.People keep saying it is a great game but the buyers obviously don't seem to think so.
...especially when SEGA bought Relic Entertainment for like 27 mil and I've never even heard of that.
Relic is mostly a PC developer with a few console titles under their wing. It was a no brainer someone would pick them up and Sega is a perfect fit as already has Creative Assembly games (another predominant PC rts dev). Other than Blizzard, Sega now has one of biggest RTS markets out there (totally different types of games, but strategy still)--arguably bigger actually as Sega releases much more often and with more variety.
Aww, no wonder I've never heard of them. Not a PC gamer at all. Thanks for the info!
I think they also made the latest warhammer 40k game. which wasn't nearly as good as their pc games.
even Homefront got picked up...
FPS. Surprise surprise.
Crytek have been making Homefront 2 for a year now, I think they bought it so that there would be no name disputes down the line, as they paid $500 000 for it which happens to be the minimum bid that was allowed (also shows no one else was after it).
Darksiders had some of the best exploration I've seen this gen, as well as one of the most badass characters I've ever played as. Loved the story, loved the ending, loved the brutal boss fights. This is depressing.
Sony pick these guys up i want them and SM to work on DS3 now !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Platinum games has supposedly expressed interest in the franchise. Yes, please.
I'm still not sure if it was a joke or not... but everyone should want to pick it up if it's for the same general prices as the other studios/franchises. Especially knowing that darksiders, very recognizable and is owned by many people as it's been distributed at a very cheap price/free for a while now.
Well if true Platinum has let the studio die to grab just the rights to the title. So they could take it in a completely different direction than what fans are used to seeing if they do pick it up with none of the original talent on the team.
this is sad Darksiders 2 was a really good under rated game I hope someone pick it up I think Square or 2K would be good publishers
