In the past couple weeks, gamers had experience the bankruptcy of long-time videogame publisher THQ, seeing a lot of popular franchises being auctioned off definitely made fans of the purchased series happy to see that their favorite games continuing.
Unfortunately, the Darksiders series' developer Vigil Games has yet to be bought, but a recent interview between Game Informer and THQ president Jason Rubin said Vigil has another game in the works code named: Crawler.
In the interview, Rubin was asked which games he thinks will succeed under new supervision. The president replied by using Vigil's Crawler as an example, which has apparently "dropped most jaws" and confuses Rubin why nobody was willing to bid for the team and the title...
"When the teams got together recently to show each other their titles, Crawler dropped most jaws. It is a fantastic idea, and truly unique. The fact that nobody bid for the team and title is a travesty. It makes no sense to me. If I weren't barred from bidding as an insider, I would have been there with my checkbook. I'm sure that's little consolation for the team, but that's a fact."
However, if the game is as good as Rubin makes it out to be, then why hasn't anyone purchased Vigil or the title? Rubin believes the answer is found in the fact that Crawler is a new IP, and that the developer has just come off releasing the fantastic Darksiders 2, thus making a long time lapse between Vigil's next release...
"Having just finished a product, Vigil was farthest from release of their next game, and we were not able to garner any interest from buyers, despite a Herculean effort. Additionally, they were working on a new IP, which meant even more risk for a buyer."
