    I just hope whoever will make Darksiders 3 and 4 (not sure if there will be more) will not fuck up this great game.

    CAN WE ALL AGREE THAT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING HERE IS WHEN/WHAT SEGA WILL DO WITH RELIC/THE MOST IMPORTANT IP IN THE GAMES INDUSTRY RITE NAUW?

    I think noone but Vigil games will make DS3-4 if they ever get the opportunity to make them, but unsure where they landed in all of this.

    Dare one hope Activision takes on the herculian task of making a success full WH(40k) game, or would it then be too obvious all the things they've copied to WoW, Starcraft, etc? Wait what am I saying, Blizzard invented elves, orcs, tyranids and made the first mmorpg ever. :alien:

    Volition is not only Saints Row. They hold the rights to the whole Red Faction and Freespace franchise as well.
    And Let's not forget that Saints Row 4 is due for release this year.

    Sega proly made the best deal here tho..Company of Heroes 2 is ready for release in March and expected to be a huge success

    Also hoping for a new Homeworld game from Relic :D

    They are probably the largest independent distributor in Europe - there are too many games to mention that they have distributed and they are all very big releases, but to name one for you they are the distributing partner for GW2 in Spain, France and the UK.

    Seems like platinum games is showing interest in buying the Darksiders franchise.
