I only have one thing to say about all of this:
If South Park get's fucked up with uplay I won't buy the game. Not even on a sale for 5 bucks or whatever.
My own suspicion is that the Universe is not only queerer than we suppose, but queerer than we can suppose.

Dictated but not read.
This is bloody depressing, a great company made some crappy choices and now the remains are being fed to some crappy sharks that can barely swim right.
There goes any chance of decent sequels.
Really nice that both Warhammer fantasy and 40k is under the same roof now. Also i wish blizzard would buy Vigil games and continue the 40K Dark Millenium mmo. Or atlest that some good mmo company will buy the Dark Millenium licence and continue with it.
Maby Games Workshop will give sega Dark Millenium to, one can hope though sega/creative assembly have no mmo experience.

I wonder what happens to IP not bought up. Can people try kickstarter campaigns to fund a sequel or finish development of incomplete games?
No one should be glad that Sega bought Relic. Sega is a shit company that likes to go on copyright infringement sprees and ruin people's youtube channels for no damn reason.
The Warhammer games won't improve at all, you can count on that.
I'm not an expert in this, but the games will still belong to whatever bank is running the financial bankruptcy side of it; they're likely to just be shelved in the hope that some developer comes back to buy them in the future. The company can issue a legal notice of discontinuance, or can simply abandon it. After a certain amount of years have passed without support games can become abandonware - and freely distributed but people still can't pick them up and then start selling a sequel because the IP itself is still copyright.
Just noticed the errors on my post I had alot of bugs with Dead island not to mention with multiplayer only one person could officially pick up quests and track them leaving the other players in the dark, there were alot of things I did like but its was hard not to feel somewhat let down
And taking that mentality to Saints row even if the third didnt live up to alot of fans expectations the 4th one def wont just my opinion
If everything I do is wrong then by god ill do it right
Seeing Vigil get shuttered like this really makes me sad. Darksiders was an amazing IP with a great story and fun gameplay. I hope some of the people at Vigil are able to stick together and start up a new company, or hit Kickstarter or something. Great team, great talent and I wish them all the best of luck.
Also, the Dark Millennium game was being developed by Vigil, wasn't it?
I'm just hoping for someone to pick up the Warhammer 40k license and that they will continue the Dawn of War series. I think Relic was the studio that did those, so SEGA buying them is just good, because they are the publishers for the Total War series. I also know Creative Assembly are working on a Warhammer Fantasy RTS title, so I have my hopes up.

Creative Assembly is making a Warhammer Fantasy RTS. I'm quite confident that it will be pretty good, seeing as how they've been doing Total War games for over a decade. SEGA is their publisher.
I just want Darksiders to survive...
