Crytek opens new US Studio, takes on Vigil staff

"Maybe you can imagine what it feels like when you read the list of who bought what only to discover your name is not on the list. Why? Did we do something wrong? Were we not good enough? Were we not worth ’anything?’ Imagine that," Vigil’s Ben Cureton posted on NeoGAF after finding out that the Darksiders studio would not be picked up at THQ’s liquidation auction.

However, the newly-formed Crytek USA promises to take some of that talent, offering "a new start" for members of that team.

Crytek USA will be located in Austin, Texas, and will be the first US development studio for the company best known for Crysis. David Adams, former co-owner of Vigil, will head the team. A Crytek rep toldGamasutra that Crytek USA is "like a new start for [the team at Vigil]," and that it will be home to a team of "35 experienced developers."

Vigil had already started work on its next project, codenamed "Crawler," when parent company THQ collapsed. According to THQ’s Jason Rubin, the prototype "dropped jaws."

Although Crytek is not formally absorbing Vigil or the Darksiders brand, it did pick up another asset from the THQ sale: rights to the Homefront franchise. The company is currently working on Homefront 2.
