In between good critical success, and news that Darksiders 2 is make or break for Vigil Games, allegations have come about that some ex-Vigil employees who worked on the game haven’t received their due.
UI designer Xander Davis made a compelling case on Twitter, stating, “If I hadn’t said anything, nobody would’ve even noticed. Who reads credits anyway? No one. I know it probably doesn’t even matter. But you know, what? I read them. It matters. After the hell that I went through, after giving Vigil everything and more, like so many others, after doing my job and doing it well and leading with no support, in record time… once I saw the credits, I simply couldn’t stand to let that pass.”
He goes into more detail about all the work he had to do and how he felt he was treated afterwards.
Vigil Games general manager David Adams responded to the allegations, saying, “When we were forced to reduce staff due to the cancellation of a project, we worked hard to ensure every single person effected by the layoff received their credit in the game. We did not include individuals whose employment terminated for any other reason, for example, being let go for documented poor performance.”
