In conversation with Eurogamer today, Nordic Games Group owner and CEO Lars Wingefors, which recently picked up the Darksiders, Red Faction, Summoner and other franchises from the THQ auction for $4.9 million, spoke about about wanting a studio with the right track record for Darksiders 3.
“We are not a developer. We should not create a sequel. We need to find the best creative team to look into a sequel. We will look into various options to make sequels. In the last 24 hours we have been approached by people who seem to know that product very well. However, if those discussions lead anywhere, I don’t know.”
“Without saying we have been in contact with Crytek USA, I’d love to do something with them if we can find the right set-up. If they can prove they can make a worthwhile sequel, why shouldn’t we talk? I have a great respect for those guys. They made very good games. But I’m sure they have a full agenda. Making games takes time.”
Wingefors felt that Crytek USA “are the best-suited people in the world to make a sequel, that I’m aware of. But if someone else has a better set-up, they should step forward. We take one day at a time. I’m sure we’ll get the chance to speak.”
