A lot of folks were feeling a little sad that no one picked up Vigil Games, makers of Darksiders
. They do some good work, and you'd think someone would've bought that IP for what was probably a relatively inexpensive asking price considering what the other IPs went for.
Well, good news as Crytek announced
they are opening a Crytek USA Corp in Austin and it's the new home for the Vigil staff. No word on what they will be working on, but Crytek's really come through both in purchasing Homefront and now giving the people at Vigil a job.
It's great to see some good news come out of this and I bet the folks at (former) Vigil Games can now breath a big sigh of relief.
