Crytek Wants To Bring Darksiders Back Home
After THQ fell out a few months ago and all of its assets were put up on auction, many found new homes under new developers and publishers. Darksiders was not one of these titles, for a few obvious reasons. Despite being decent titles, the Darksiders franchise found it hard to make itself seem unique, and with sales of the sequel not reaching close to expected figures, it would be a tough task to buy the franchise an turn it onto something that could eventually make some money.
But that’s what Crytek are planning on doing. In fact, Crytek USA wants to bring the title back to those who know how to work with it. You see, after Vigil Games fell with THQ, Crytek hired most of its developers, meaning that a purchase of the Darksiders franchise would keep the game in the hands of the people who created it. However, is this necessarily a good thing?

It’s not a done deal yet, but having the franchise return to developers who struggled to make it unique after two attempts seems like a step to the side rather than forward. Sure, Darksiders 2 was a vast improvement over the first, but even then it had its flaws. Are gamers really that excited for a possible third entry?
Well they’ll probably be getting it anyway, as it looks like no one else really wants the Darksiders franchise. The remaining THQ assets, including Homeworld, will go up on auction for the last time next month.
