"Going to bid on Darksiders IP," Adams wrote. "Put 7 years of heart and soul into that franchise, and I think it belongs at home with its creators."
Vigil Games closed in January this year when THQ didn't find a buyer for the studio. Adams, Vigil's co-founder, went on to found a new studio in Austin, Texas under the Crytek umbrella. The new studio was founded within two weeks of Vigil's shuttering and the studio consists of 35 former Vigil Games employees.
Adams followed up the first tweet with another, largely stating the same thing but with the addition of PS3 and 360 hashtags.
Destructoid reports that Vigil co-founder Ryan Stefanelli confirmed Adams intentions with them.
"When the Darksiders IP goes up for auction, Crytek will be bidding for it," he told Destructoid. "Not much more to say since the rest is left up to courts and legal shenanigans, but we're all excited at the prospect."
When Polygon reached out to Crytek for clarification on the matter, the company's officials said that they are aware of his tweet but declined to comment.
