Vigil Games Lives On In Gunfire Games


Darksiders developer Vigil Games unfortunately went down with the rapidly sinking ship that was THQ. Many of the employees went on to work at Crytek, but with the recent issues that company has had the founder of Vigil (who was the head of Crytek USA), David Adams and several ex-Vigil employees have left Crytek to form their own studio called Gunfire Games.

Adams cited among other things lack of good communication between Crytek and his studio was a motivation for his departure.

"Forming another independent studio was something that I thought about because of what was going on. It got to the point where people were starting to leave… When you make a game, one of the most important elements of that is the people you work with. You could get 12 of the best developers in the world and put them into a room and they may not make a good game."

Adams said continuing the Darksiders series is definitely an option that Gunfire Games is looking into. That being said, something would have to be worked out between Gunfire Games, and Nordic Games, who currently own the Darksiders property.

Any talk of continuing Darksiders is a good thing, that was one of the more fun and original series of the last generation of games and it shouldn’t just be locked away by some company that probably has no idea what to do with it.
