After the THQ fire sale a few days back, the unfortunate news was that there weren’t any bids for either Vigil Games or for the Darksiders franchise. This led to all Vigil Games employees being laid off immediately. Fortunately it hasn’t taken long for many of them to get back on their feet. According to Polygon, Vigil Games co-Founder David Adams has been hired on as the new CEO of Crytek USA Corp. Crytek is best known for the Crysis series. Adams had this to say about his latest gig at the new studio.
In addition to Adams, 35 employees have been hired on to join the team, all of which are former Vigil Games team members. Great news for the team and we wish the best of luck to them. As of now, the Darksiders franchise still is in a bit of limbo and the chances of a Darksiders III happening will have to wait, pending the sale of the IP. It is also worth noting that there was no mention of the new IP Crawler. Stay tuned as more news breaks.
