THQ will sell off remaining IP such as Darksiders

GE: "A majority of THQ's most-popular IPs have found new homes. There are some franchises, however, that have yet to be auctioned off." (PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

The sale begins on April 1st... some dark humor there.

I really want Sony to pick up Darksiders.

That IP would be a great extension to their IP list, as opposed to being buried underneath what they already do.

Platinum Games, Sony Santa Monica, Team Ninja, Kojima (At Least for the story and cut scenes, with Platinum to do the combat), Visceral Games, Capcom or maybe Ninja Theory.

The problem is, that game didn't sell we'll enough when it was on multiple platforms. I can't imagine it would do very well as an exclusive. Even though it would be cool to see.

I would kickstart the Darksiders 3, if developers decide to.

Vigil themselves have already been brought in by Crytek.

The Darksiders IP, however ... that is up in the air.

I think someone will, but I'm more interested in one of these console companies to pick up the developers themselves. They seem like good developers who need a new start and a little guidance in order to step up to an amazing level.

I'd be glad if any of Nintendo, Sony or MS pick them up, but I prefer Nintendo pick them up and put them on the Zelda teams.

I forgot they did Titan Quest... was a great PC game (one of the better Diabloesque games by far).

Hopefully some publishers/developers pick up some of these as really enjoyed quite a few of their games throughout the years, some of which I didn't remember they did until seeing this.

Darksiders was one of the best new IPs this gen and doesn't deserve to die.

Darksiders and Darksiders 2 are some of the best games i played this Gen. I really hope they get picked up.

Hopefully whoever buys Lot 5 makes a Destroy All Humans HD collection for Vita.

Developers I think will do the Darksiders franchise justice and better:
Naughty Dog
Retro Studios
Team Ninja
Gearbox(lol, NO!!! :p)

platinum games would be a perfect fit.

Retro is a subsidiary of Nintendo and seeing as people flipped out about Bayonetta 2 coming out for the Wii U, something tells me people would freak even more if Darksiders was exlusive to Nintendo.
BlackWolf  +   790d ago
I just hope Darksiers finds a good home. It's a brilliant series that deserves more time to shine. I'll be happy if a competent dev team picks it up.
Soldierone  +   790d ago
They have some shooters in there that could get some milk from another company. I actually liked the first Full Spectrum Warrior.

Juiced is another one that could easily compete with NFS under the right developer.
ironfist92  +   790d ago
I hope Red Faction and Darksiders gets great sequels, instead of being unbought and forgotten.
e-p-ayeaH  +   790d ago
What gonna happen with Metro Last Light?

Red Faction needs a home somewhere its sad to see it go away.
ScytheX3  +   790d ago
Metro LL went to Deep Silver so theyll be publishing that now, as for a PSN release completely up to them now. still 4A games as developer so dont think quality will suffer.
RogueStatus28  +   790d ago
Nintendo not only because the guys at Vigil are huge Zelda fans but it would make sense from a gameplay perspective. Also Death would make an appearance in Smash Bros.
stragomccloud  +   790d ago
Really hope Nintendo buys the IP and they get Platinum games to collaborate with Vigil~
stuntman_mike  +   790d ago
I bought Darksiders 2 for £7 on PSN a bargain at that price (i'm sure the company doesnt cost much more lol). excellent game really needs to be snapped up by someone.
