Wow, and Take Two was one of the few publishers who didn't already have an Austin, TX developer

Wow, that really sucks for Vigil. I guess those guys could try applying at Retro since they're just down the road, but the Darksiders IP going on without them is sad.

Vigil is dead. Their lead combat designer just tweeted asking if anyone was looking to hire.

Aw snap
I wonder what happened to Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy. I've been hoping that it pops up on PSN as a pS2 classic

But didn't Darksiders II bomb sales-wise, and word of mouth was from gamers pretty bad? 1 good game followed by 1 disappointment doesn't make them any attractive buy I'd guess.

It had shipped 1.4 million back in November which THQ described as below expectations although I think their expectations at that point were "oh dear god please save this company"

Has anything been said about Devil's Third? I know it's been halted for a sec now, but last I heard THQ still held the IP in search of a buyer.

Okay, so based on the reports from Manveer's twitter, we have:

- Ubisoft acquires South Park: Stick of Truth and THQ Montreal
- Take2 acquires Turtle Rock's project
- Sega acquires Relic
- Koch Media acquires Volition
- No one wants Vigil

Is that it right now?

Tragic, I hope you know that I am grateful to you for fixing Darksider's combat. Practically the reason I bought the game.

Hopefully whoever decides to carry that franchise on doesn't completely abandon what you put into it.

Devil's Third hasn't been associated with THQ in a while. Last thing we heard was that Valhalla partnered up with Doobic for some kind of PC/mobile version.

Volition under Deep Sliver/Koch Media is better than EA.
