Even though I never finished the first Darksiders game I still enjoyed it. It's just a shame that no one was interested in actually purchasing the company that made it. Even more sad that a shitstain like Homefront can be bought...
Still, I'm happy to hear that Platinum Games want to pick it up. That could be a great combination and I would certainly buy the game. Hopefully most of the people that created the original two games will get jobs, and quickly.
SEGA getting the Warhammer license could be fucking awesome, especially if they give it to The Creative Assembly!
I've kinda convinced myself that Crytek bought Homefront to avoid any weird licensing issues with another buyer, given that they'd started making the sequel in CryEngine. You've gotta think the brand is more a curse than a blessing at this point.
Following THQ’s sale of the majority of its assets yesterday, the one question that remained is what will happen to the franchises not included in this week’s auction. In a new interview with Game Informer, THQ president Jason Rubin has now confirmed that those titles will be sold off as well.
“There will be a separate process to sell off the back catalog and IP,” Rubin said. “That process will take place in the coming weeks.”
Exactly when that process will take place hasn’t been revealed, nor have any of the specific titles that might be included. THQ franchises not in this week's auction include Red Faction, de Blob and Destroy All Humans!. The sale could potentially also include Darksiders, which remains unsold after yesterday’s proceedings.
