The executive director of Platinum Games, Atsushi Inaba, said he would be interested in purchasing the license, but only “if it was cheap”. The studio behind Darksiders, Vigil Games, has not been picked up by any company as of yet. Needless to say, the studio’s future is at stake, and the employees jobs.
“Maybe you can imagine what it feels like when you read the list of who bought what only to discover your name is not on the list. Why? Did we do something wrong? Were we not good enough? Were we not worth ‘anything?’ Imagine that,” he said.
“Vigil was filled with people that I would put up against the best in the industry. People that made my work better, people that made me a better designer, and people that made me a better person. And now they are gone. Their seats are empty.”
