Vigil Games lives in Crytek USA!

Great news for ex-Vigil Games employees, Crytek (makers of Crysis) bought them and have moved the ex-Darksiders developers to Austin Texas as part of an all-new Crytek USA studio.

This is really great as it will allow those talented developers who created the outstanding Darksiders franchise to continue working and hopefully create another great American franchise for the German publisher.

This follows an auction from THQ in which they sold off a majority of their assets as part of their Chapter 11 Bankruptcy case; however for some odd reason Vigil Games and the Darksiders franchise were not scooped up.

It’s unclear whether or not Crytek also picked up the Darksiders franchise or just the developers, hopefully both.

THQ president Jason Rubin tweeted, “Great news for Vigil, at least the core team. Thanks to Crytek for saving as much as they could of a fantastic team.”
