Crytek intends to buy Darksiders IP in April THQ auction

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Peter Grimm  

Crytek has announced its intention to purchase the rights to the Darksiders franchise when it goes up for sale along with the rest of the late THQ’s unsold assets next month. 

The news comes courtesy of a tweet from David Adams, head of Crytek USA. The move is not too surprising, considering Crytek USA is made up of ex-employees of series creator Vigil Games, which was shut down after not getting sold during THQ’s initial bankruptcy auction.

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

This was reiterated by Vigil co-founder and Crytek USA principal designer Ryan Stefanelli, who told Destructoid, “When the Darksiders IP goes up for auction, Crytek will be bidding for it. Not much more to say since the rest is left up to courts and legal shenanigans, but we're all excited at the prospect."

THQ stated last month that it expects the remainder of its assets will be sold off before the end of May with final bids expected by April 15. While that means nothing is finalized yet, fans of Darksiders should be relieved to know that its creators want to keep it from fading away with THQ as initially feared.
