A Return To Darksiders Being Explored By Ex-Crytek USA Developer

War

In speaking with Polygon during a recent interview, Crytek USA’s former CEO David Adams revealed that a return to the Darksiders franchise is being explored.

Adams and six other members of Crytek USA’s core development team — who had previously worked on past Darksiders titles while at Vigil Games — left and formed a new independent studio, Gunfire Games. This was around the same time numerous reports began to surface about Crytek financial woes, loss of staff and other issues.

“Forming another independent studio was something that I thought about because of what was going on, Adams told Polygon. “It got to the point where people were starting to leave.”

Death in Darksiders 2 (2012)

Gunfire Games is looking towards it’s next big project while it works on establishing its new studio. A new Darksiders title is one of those possibilities and they have already spoken to Nordic Games, the studio that bought the rights to the series during the bankruptcy auction for THQ back in 2013.

“That is one of the options we are exploring,” he explained. “But we don’t want to jump into something immediately. We want to weigh our options.”

I for one would love to see Darksiders 3 hit the new consoles and PC one day; the story of the Horseman of the apocalypse and the destruction of mankind was an interesting one. Not to mention the games were fun to play as well. Hell a remastered collection of the first two games would be ideal for bringing in new fans and garnering even more interest in a third.

Data: 93% of Homes in Australia Own a Dedicated Video Game Console (Since 2012)

RGN Analysis

According to a new report (the fifth one of its kind) Australia has been found to host 93% of its homes to a dedicated video game console. This statistic emerges in reaction to 2012 data which has been released showing a huge leap from 2005’s 78% ownership ratio. It’s not just younger generations embracing the digital medium either, for the first time in the country there has also been an increased active engagement seen in older demographics such as ages 30s and 40s.

There’s also an increase in discussion between literature and other forms of entertainment growing alongside the video games industry in Australia, citing a higher percentage of active and engaged minds in consuming information with a Professor at Bond University named Jeff Brand making the following statement, “this is analogous to a kind of literacy for the twentieth first century.” according to Dr. Jeff Brand.
