The next-generation of consoles were thought to have missed out on what could have been "Crawler" and "Darksiders 3," but it seems as though Crytek has come to save what was nearly lost.
According to a report from Polygon yesterday, THQ president Jason Rubin tweeted out some good news to most folks from Vigil.
"Great news for Vigil, at least the core team. Thanks to Crytek for saving as much as they could of a fantastic team," Rubin said.
CEO of Crytek USA Corp David Adams said he is very excited to be a part of the newly formed studio and is ready to get started.
"I'm thrilled to be a part of the newest Crytek studio, which will boast some of the brightest development talent in the industry.
"The studio's launch represents Crytek's commitment to delivering diverse and high quality content to players everywhere," Adams said.
Crytek's CEO, Cevat Yerli, also jumped in the ring talking about what they are looking for the studio to accomplish.
"Crytek has always enjoyed a special relationship with gamers and business partners in North America, so establishing a permanent presence in the US was a natural step.
"We are extremely excited about the work that we will be undertaking from our strategic new location in Austin, with David Adams and his team of 35 experienced developers.
"We believe our CryEngine technology will enable the team we assemble to create unparalleled new gaming experiences," Yerli said.
