Nordic Games made a killing yesterday when they purchased substantially all of the remaining THQ properties aside from Homeworld and Drawn to Life. This means they own the Darksiders franchise so should we be expecting more in the pipeline?
In an interview with Eurogamer, CEO Lars Wingefors said they won’t be developing it but they want a developer with a great track record.
Vigil Games is no longer but some of the original team members created Crytek USA. They had a desire to bid for it but in the end, lost out to Nordic. That doesn’t mean Crytek USA can’t develop Darksiders 3. Wingefors said:
“Without saying we have been in contact with Crytek USA, I’d love to do something with them if we can find the right set-up, If they can prove they can make a worthwhile sequel, why shouldn’t we talk?”
Nordic also realizes the money THQ used to have to spend on these franchises. They’re a financially viable company who plans on making the most of the properties they bought. They plan on doing the same for Red Faction.
