Judging by the MGR demo, vanquish and bayonetta... this would be awesome! Doubt it'll happen but a man can hope.

I hope they do. Darksiders shouldn't die, it's a magnificent series.

Ninja theory should buy it instead.

I don't know who's gonna buy Darksiders, nor do I have thoughts on who I'd prefer. Maybe I'm a little disappointed THQ tanked and the future for the series looks grim, but I do know this - I would HATE to see Platinum games or Ninja Theory to buy it. Their games don't contain the vastness nor the epicness that the two games have established. They'd may as well not even bother if those would be the only two devs who'd want to buy it.

I guess if I had to choose, I'd like to see Naughty Dog take it. Why? Amy Hennig. That's why.

I so hope this is true, I don't want to see Darksiders go. The games were phenomenal, and did not get the publicity they needed. I agree with reaver11, it'd be hard to find another company that will be able to craft a story like Vigil has, but out of who I can currently think of, I'd much prefer it be picked up by Platinum Games... As opposed to others. *cough*Capcom*cough*
If it wasn't for the console exlusivity, Sony Santa Monica... I mean. God of War.
Maybe Visceral...? They crafted a good story with Dante's Inferno in my opinion, and would be another good choice.

Actually Platinum is well versed with making games like Darksiders, probably better than Sony Santa Monica since they have more experience, they did afterall create Okami.

I just hate what they did to Revengeance and how they made Bayonetta. Fun, but a severe lack of atmosphere. And Darksiders gameplay is similar to those twos gameplay, so go figure - this is how they handle hack n slash games :/
