Over the past few days, it has looked like a grim future for the development studio of Vigil Games, but it looks like there may be hope after all for the recently turned down studio.
According to a report from DSOGaming on Friday, Sony Santa Monica has apparently expressed some interest in the crew over at Vigil Games.
"We have a lot of admiration for the talented team at Vigil and 'Darksiders,' great epic game, amazing people.
"To all THQ employees and developers, WE ARE HIRING, please tweet back at us if you are interested. Please RT or pass this along, thank you," Santa Monica said.
This is an interesting development as many had thought the studio would be done since no company has picked them up.
Now this does not mean the projects that were underway at Vigil will be continued at Sony Santa Monica, but it's a step in the right direction for the people who were recently laid off due to now company picking them up.
THQ's Haydon Dalton confirmed that the company did have a third installment in the series planned with a new feature being added, but the unfortunate events of Vigil not being purchased resulted in the end of that happening.
"There was a shimmer on a slither of hope, that at one point, there'd be a 'Darksiders III': 4 Player Co-Op; It rode off into the sunset today," Dalton said.
