It's looking increasingly unlikely that we'll ever see a proper sequel to Darksiders II. That said, the license for that property is still up for sale, if any publisher wants to snap it up.

According to Gamasutra the new studio will consist of 35 developers which represent the “brightest development talent in the industry,” some of whom formerly worked for Vigil Games. A representative from Crytek USA even went as far to say that the new studio represented a “new start” for the team behind Darksiders and Darksiders II.

Crytek is one of the fastest growing game corporations in the world with subsidiaries in its home nation of Germany, Ukraine, Hungary, Bulgaria, Seoul, Nottingham, Shanghai and Istanbul.

Vigil Games existence was cast in fresh doubt last week when the studio surprisingly went unsold at THQ’s much-published liquidation auction, but it’s good to know that at least some of the dev talent from that studio is being kept together at a new outfit a stone’s throw away from their former home.

We look forward to the first game from Crytek USA with great interest.
