Ehh, I guess Crytek just has no interest in Darksiders franchise. Hopefully Crytek can get these guys to work on a brand new next gen title.

@Ritsujun Ok you don't need to troll it? I'm just saying Crytek wants to shelve it at the moment. They want the studio working on a different projects right now.

Darksiders is just one of those unfortunate Ip's that are being put away until further notice.

No one gives a darn about the Ducksuckers series anyway.

Well they have to own it before they could care about it.

So far noone has bought Darksiders or so I have not heard anything yet. There was another Auction coming at some point soon.

To be honest im just glad they got another job fairly quickly. Good for them. Even if they dont get to continue Darksiders right now, at least they've been invested in, and it might be a future project for them.

Only time will tell.

crytek was making a GOW like game for the XBOX right?

maybe this is what they will end up finishing or more like doing, i don't believe they had the talent to even start such a game but know they do ..

I don't see why they would let the franchise die,with the Cryengine the game could become so great.

1.4 million was still pretty good never-the-less.

Crytek,

No more Darksiders? Your dead to me! >:(

Crytek are the saviors in this. I have a new found respect for them, as they just hired like most'of the Darksiders team without interviewing them.

From a business standpoint, it just is too much of a risk. I'm a huge Darksiders fan, and I know the sales were pretty poor.

I know Crytek did a good thing and really hope they have something up their sleeves and branch out to the third-person genre instead of another first person game.

No!!!!!
BUY THE IP SONY! Get Ready at Dawn to make Darksiders 3!!!! PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE!!!
SlyFamous02  +   758d ago
This is good news now they can sell the IP to someone more competent because if Crytek is done with it, it will be as boring as the Crysis franchise.
Rask  +   758d ago
Crytek is interested only in generic shooters.
