Vigil co-founder bidding on Darksiders IP

After THQ crumbled into dust, a few franchises were left homeless. One of these was Darksiders - along with developer Vigil Games - which now looks set to fade into the ether. That is, unless Crytek USA CEO David Adams has his way.

New studio Crytek USA is a direct result of the THQ auction, with the Turkish company snapping up the Homefront license, and - seemingly - an assortment of former Vigil staffers. This includes Adams, co-founder of the original studio, and a man who dearly loves the Darksiders franchise.

At the time of purchase, Crytek announced that its new, Texas-based office "would not" develop any new Darksiders titles, but Adams plans otherwise.

Going to bid on Darksiders IP. Put 7 years of heart and soul into that franchise, and I think it belongs at home with its creators.

Darksiders is one of the remaining THQ titles facing a second auction this month, with initial bids due in by April 1st. Final bids must be submitted by April 15th, which means Adams may have as little as two weeks until he finds out the future of his baby.
