From left field, Nordic Games with the win! Hopefully they can do the franchise justice and improve on the awful storyline (read: Massive Fetch quest) that the second game ended up being. I loved the interesting story of the first, but the second one failed to capture my attention in the same way.

dark siders, red faction are now owned by nordic games
i hope they handle those games properly or make it better....

maybe in the future nordic games will become a well known publisher along side ubisoft, activision, ea, take two, etc ^_^

Don't know why you got disagrees. I would like to see how Nordic handles them too, especially Red Faction. Who knows? Maybe they will turn out better.

I guess now former Vigil just didn't care to keep working on Darksiders.

except they manifested interest on developping it . And how could they even show they care ? They dont even exist anymore with madureira gone , and the studios scattered in pieces , with only some hired over crytek .

It's Crytek and the publishers that dropped the ball here

It was such a cheap price though, I guess bigger companies just didn't see enough promise in the franchise?

Just dont screw this game by making it a 4 player co-op i want the other horsemans to have there own story standalone.

I guess on the bright side, at least it didn't go to FPS trolls, I mean major publishers that would ruin it.

Nordic hasn't done much, but there is still that glimmer of hope that they do something great with it. AAA has to start somewhere.

Kinda surprising not to see bigger devs going for Darksiders, its a very solid franchise in a dying genre.
WeskerChildReborned  +   828d ago
I guess the Big devs are busy on their own projects or they just didn't have interest with Darksiders.

Hopefully Nordic can keep the Darksiders Franchise going but atm i don't know what to expect cause i never heard much frm the dev.

Nordic looks like the kind of company that buys ips for cheap, relatively speaking of course, and resales them for much higher. 4.9million for the Darksiders franchise is nothing and they will undoubtedly make that back and then some when they resale the ip.
