Back in January, THQ sold off many of its existing studios and game franchises, but several of our favorite franchises and studios went unsold, including Darksiders and its developer Vigil Games. Since then, many members of the Vigil team have joined with Crytek to form a new US Studio. However, this still left the Darksiders franchise on the sideline without a home.
It has since been revealed that THQ will sell off the rest of its properties this coming April. Bidding will run from April 1st until April 15th. Darksiders and Darksiders II are packaged in the same lot and presumably whomever purchases the two titles will gain the rights to the series moving forward. This will be the first step towards any hope or dream of a Darksiders III ever existing. Only time will tell, but I’m personally crossing my fingers that Crytek considers making a bid for the two games since it does make the most sense and would give the most hope for a Darksiders III in the future.
