Crytek not interested in Darksiders 3

Crytek has explained that, while it has indeed acquired Vigil Games' staff, it's not particularly interested in Vigil Games' ... games. Basically, don't go expecting Darksiders 3, because Crytek's simply not interested. The team's working under Crytek USA boss David Adams, and Darksiders isn't part of the plan. 

"We didn’t want to continue with Darksiders 3, since that doesn’t fit with our strategy. It’s not like we set the team on a specific game concept," CEO Cevat Yerli told GamesBeat. "They’re actually going to work on what David and the team identifies as what they want to do.

"Right now, they just know what the strategy of Crytek is and the framework we need to satisfy, but none of that drives what the game is about."

It's a shame Crytek's not interested. Darksiders 3 running in CryEngine would probably be quite the spectacle, and I dare say the company could do with more than first-person shooters in its stable of properties. Still, I guess there's always hope, so long as Vigil's team is alive somewhere. Sigh.

There's a max Rupee glitch in Hyrule Warriors

9,999,999 Rupees in Hyrule Warriors. Yeah, I could go for that. The game's community has been working tirelessly to figure out a newly discovered glitch that involves slaying a giant boss (King Dodongo, Gohma, etc.) with a w...more

Hyrule Warriors' play-as-Ganon mode looks broken and awesome

In the next and seemingly final piece of DLC for Hyrule Warriors, we'll be able to punch bosses in the face as the biggest boss of all, Ganon, in his own separate mode. I'm eager to let my anger out on the Imprisoned, that j...more
