The screenshot below, which includes the words "Darksiders Linux" in the title bar, was posted alongside a comment that reads, "From our labs!"

Vigil Games was planning to add cooperative multiplayer, last two Horsemen to Darksiders 3

Vigil Games was planning to add cooperative multiplayer to a third installment in the Darksiders series had they retained control of the IP, former Vigil creative director Joe Madureira told IGN. The Darksiders games, along with more than 150 other titles, were acquired by Nordic Games in April at the close of the THQ bankruptcy auction. Prior to the purchase, Vigil had been brainstorming story and gameplay ideas for what could have been Darksiders 3, including the addition of the remaining two Horsemen of the Apocalypse. "It was always our hope to do a full four-player co-op game, with all four Horsemen playable," Madureira said. "It's possible we could have pulled it off. I would have liked to introduce Fury and Strife. I know many fans feel robbed that they never got to play the...

The future of Darksiders, Red Faction and THQ's other IP at Nordic Games

"I've seen bad experiences with trying to handle creative people," said Wingefors, self-described entrepreneur and owner of Nordic Games Group and Wingefors Invest. "So we don't have any internal developers and I don't intend to." Typically that wouldn't be a problem for a game distributor, but as of yesterday afternoon unofficially, and next month officially, Wingefors' Nordic Games will be the owner of more than 150 individual titles, rights to titles and video game franchises, each the beloved orphan of THQ's steady disintegration. It will be up to Wingefors and his business team in Austria to decide what to do with the likes of MX Vs. ATV, Darksiders, Red Faction, Deadly Creatures, Destroy All Humans, Supreme Commander, Titan Quest, and the list goes on and on. Does he plan to...

Crytek USA Corp. CEO announces intention to buy Darksiders IP

Ex-Vigil personnel now residing at Crytek intend to make a bid on the Darksiders intellectual property because it belongs with its creators, according to a tweet by Crytek USA Corp. David Adams. "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 Xbox 360 hashtags. D...
