Crytek USA Looking To Buy Darksiders Rights

Posted on March 29, 2013 by Les Major

Fans of the Darksiders series may still have hope yet as Crytek USA looks into buying the franchises rights. Crytek USA is company made up of past employees of Vigil, the studio who created Darksiders in the first place. I definitely hope Darksiders ends up back with it’s creators so we can see the natural intended progression of the series.

Final bids on Darksiders and several other THQ series such as Red Faction and Homeworld are due by April 15th. MX is also being sold seperately like the previously mentioned titles while two bundles of additional titles are being sold together such as Destroy All Humans! and Summoner that make up the internal bundle.

While we’re on the topic, I really hope Red Faction gets picked up! The Geomod engine is a fantastic tool which I’d assume would come included in the sale. I couldn’t get enough of Red Faction: Guerrilla!
