Yesterday, we reported that THQ's time was up and the company's studios were being sold off to the highest bidders.

One of the shocks of the process has been the fact that nobody has come forward to purchase Darksiders II studio Vigil Games.

However, it would seem that there are interested parties out there. Platinum Games head Atsushi Inaba tweeted (translation by Kotaku's Brian Ashcraft):

In THQ studio and IP selling off auction, Darksiders is unsold? [We] wanna buy it...on the cheap...

This of course could be a comment made purely in jest, but just imagine what it would be like to see a Darksiders III made in collaboration with Platinum Games...
