Sadly, Darksiders is pretty much dead. The IP was one of the few assets that THQ was unable to successfully sell off.
Crytek did pick up a good majority of Vigil staffers – responsible for the Darksiders games – but left the series behind.
Rovio creative director Patrick Liu tweeted earlier this week: “No more Darksiders! Whyyyyy Crytek…”. Responding to this, Darksiders’ lead designer Haydn Dalton wrote:
“Tis true Pat…sometimes good things come to an end. That’s why you’ve gotta enjoy them while you can.”
And thus Dalton confirms what we all expected at this point: Darksiders is gone.
