Nordic games, not a name I am particularly familiar with, (which worries me) has been confirmed as the winning bidder on the now defunct THQ publishers remaining IP, which included most prominently for me,  Darksiders.

The first two games, made by Vigil, namely Darksiders 1&2 I thought were fantastic, now that the original developer Vigil is with Crytek and Darksiders is with….somebody who is not Vigil, the future is deeply uncertain. A new game will no doubt be made, but will it be good enough to carry the name?
