The mastermind behind Darksiders and Darksiders II has left the studio he help found, leaving behind a team that will need to seek new avenues of inspiration.
Joe Madureira leaves Vigil Games today, stating that he couldn’t be more proud of the legacy helped forge at the company.
Said Madureira in a Facebook post:
Farewell and best wishes to allhttp://www.gamesthirst.com/wp-admin/post-new.php my brothers and sisters at Vigil Games! After 7 long years and 2 hit games, 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.
We wish Mr. Madureira all the best with his future endeavors.
