Crytek USA looking to buy Darksiders IP


David Adams, the new CEO of Crytek USA, and founder of Vigil Games, is eager to purchase the rights to the Darksiders franchise.

In a tweet from Adams, he says that he’s going to place a bid on the franchise, citing seven years of heart and soul put into the franchise, and that the IP belongs at home with its developers.

Darksiders and Vigil Games could not find a bidder during THQ’s selling off of its assets in January, and the future of the series has been left in a state of limbo. However, a purchase from the game’s developer could guarantee the game stays true to its core foundations.

Darksiders II was met with critical positive reception upon its release. GTA Gamers will keep you posted if any confirmation on the series’ new home is made.
