Fantastic news. These guys deserved to keep working, and Crytek actually seems like a good fit for them.

Glad they're finding jobs, but Crytek... I dunno. They're under EA, so why am I supposed to be happy about this again? Oh, right, the jobs. Happy for them, sad for us.

EA didn't buy them, NYC_Gamer? So I can be happy for us too?! :D!?

Alot of people were moaning about Vigil not getting bought up but its cheaper to just build a new studio and get the ex employees from Vigil instead of purchasing the Vigil studio name with all the employees.

Good news.

Should be interesting to see what they put out. Considering the freedom, they may possibly have.

I'm happy that Vigil workers have found new jobs
Great talent + great engine = :)

How does Crytek have the money for this? Cryengine 3 or something?
NYC_Gamer  +   847d ago
Crytek does have military contracts
Pandamobile  +   847d ago
They've released several successful games, have a top tier engine that they license, do contracts for military and other serious game initiatives, and probably some other stuff on the side.

Interesting..

I was wondering that too because they have at least six studios now yet they only released three games in ten years, soon to be four.

Oh wow. Didn't expect that.

Good to know Vigil employees have somewhere to go. Crytek feels like a fitting place for them, doesn't it?
QuantumWake  +   847d ago
Well thank you Crytek for giving them a new home. Can't wait to see what they develop.

Cheers! :D

Hope Crytek gets the rights to Darksiders aswell, that way we can have a Darksiders 3 game made by ex-Vigil employees
