Gutted. Very sad. A wonderful, underrated studio, I think - hope their staff find new positions swiftly.

I'm REALLY surprised WB Games didn't pick these guys up (or Volition, for that matter) I had envisioned Vigil probably going to work on some of the DC Comics properties outside of Batman.

How did they not get bought? Darksiders 1 was great. I am currently going through Darksiders 2 and it has been a great ride so far as well.

Some talented folks worked down at the Austin studio, I really hope they find good work soon or saved up enough cash to enjoy a sabbatical in the city.

I was honestly expecting them to be one of the hotly combated studios.

Wow, that sucks.

I hope they all find homes elsewhere, like Retro Studios who is a quick ride away.

Wow that sucks. Darksiders 1 is excellent and I'm currently enjoying Darksiders 2 very much. What a shame, would've loved to see more of them in the future. :(

DS2 has it's problems, but it was a VERY solid action-adventure game, with a great combat engine, and wonderfully chunky comic book aesthetic.

This blows big black booty butt cheeks, man

FUCK
Just take it with you.
