According to a job advert, Darksiders 2 developer Vigil Games is looking to recruit for a possible FPS project.
A gameplay programmer is required by the studio, with applicants having to "previously held a senior programming position on at least one shipped AAA console or PC title (preferably an FPS)". A plus is "prior experience working on an FPS title," as well as "deep knowledge (professionally or as a gamer) of FPS mechanics and gameplay".
We're sure the fate of this project depends on the commercial success of the soon-to-be-released Darksiders 2. Financially-troubled publisher and owner of Vigil Games, THQ, is undoubtedly dependent on how the sequel performs in the market. THQ president Jason Rubin has stated previously he'd like to see Vigil apply their talent beyond Darksiders.
