THQ’s corporate office, Vigil shut down; Platinum Games tweets interest in Vigil
The clock has officially run out on THQ (and by extension, Vigil Games). With the publisher’s assets auctioned off to the highest bidder, executives distributed a memo to all employees yesterday effectively shutting down the company. A small number of employees will continue to work for THQ to aid the transition of assets to their new owners and employees to their bosses.
While Vigil went unsold during Tuesday’s auction, the developer (and the rights to the Darksiders franchise) may have a new owner soon. Atsushi Inaba, a producer at Platinum Games, has tweeted that he’d love to add Vigil to the Platinum family:
“In THQ’s studio and IP selling off auction, Darksiders is unsold? [We] wanna buy it…on the cheap…”
It’s important to note that this isn’t a formal offer to buy the studio (or even an informal one), but the Darksiders series has a lot of fans that would love to see Vigil continue their work.
