PlatinumGames wants to buy Darksiders

"If it was cheap," says PlatinumGames producer Atsushi Inaba.


Metal Gear Rising and Bayonetta 2 developer PlatinumGames wants to buy the Darksiders IP, which was unable to make a sale at yesterday’s THQ IP and studio auction.

Darksiders seriously didn’t sell at THQ’s studio and bulk IP sale? I want to buy it… if it was cheap,” said PlatinumGames producer Atsushi Inaba in a tweet.

Following today’s announcements, Darksiders franchise lead designer Haydn Dalton tweeted: “There was a shimmer on a slither of hope, that at one point, there’d be a Darksiders III: four-player co-op; It rode off into the sunset today.”
