This is where EA will try to strike to get IP's on the cheap.

Anybody but EA, Activision, or Capcom. I hope Ubi, Sony, Sega, or 2K buys the leftover IP rights.

Gothdom2831d ago

hmm, I forgot about 2k. I think they would continue the Darksiders series the way it should be done.

I'm hoping Red Faction doesn't go away for ever... Those games have all been great fun... yeah some are better than others, but at least they were different from eachother.

There seems to have a trend in the RF series. I myself have always liked it though. Some more than others, but you know that always happens.

RF 1 = awesome
RF 2 = average
RF 3 = awesome
RFA = average

I'm kinda surprised ea didn't pick up saints row. I'm glad they didn't tho.

DeadlyFire2831d ago

I question does this mean Saints Row is still up for grabs as well as other ips not listed. As most of the articles I have read only list studios and 5 IPs actually being bought. Nothing about the individual ips from the studios.

Only ones I see confirmed are:
Evolve - Take Two
WWE License - Take Two
South Park - Ubisoft
Metro - Koch Media
Homefront - Crytek
