Sony Online Entertainment has confirmed to Next-Gen that the company is "in talks" with Vanguard: Saga of Heroes developer Sigil Games, although it's unclear if an acquisition will come from the discussions.
An official forum post by Vanguard: Saga of Heroes executive producer Brad McQuaid stated,
"SOE is in discussions with Sigil regarding the future of Vanguard and Sigil Games in Carlsbad. Talks are going well and first and foremost, our primary concern right now is what's best for Vanguard and its community. We want to ensure that this game and its community have a healthy future. The specifics that we work out over the coming days will all be with that single goal in mind."
A rep for SOE, which published Vanguard, confirmed that the forum post is legitimate.
