Joe Maduereira, the Creative Director of Darksiders and Darksiders 2, has left Vigil Games. Maduereira explained to fans that it was time to move on to “new adventures” in a recent post on Facebook, saying that the studio was in good hands and had awesome things coming down the road.
“Farewell and best wishes to all my brothers and sisters at Vigil Games,” said Madureira. “After 7 long years and 2 hit games ( Darksiders BABY! ) I’m afraid the time has come for me to move on to new adventures. I could not be more proud of what we achieved, or the awesome people who helped build up this studio. I can safely say Vigil’s future is in very good hands, so expect only awesomeness down the road. This feels surreal…I miss the place already.”
The comic book writer/game developer also told fans that his upcoming projects include “banging out a bunch of comics”. While Vigil has yet to announce any future plans for the Darksiders franchise, their recently released Darksiders II got great reviews from critics.
