European Wii U owners will not be able to purchase Darksiders 2 via the eShop digital store after March 31.The news comes via a notice on the eShop News page, which warns gamers of the software removal."The software will continue to be available for re-download if you have already purchased it," reads the notice pictured right (via Nintendo Life)."We apologize for the inconvenience," concludes the notice. No reasoning for the withdrawal is offered, nor is it indicated whether or not the title will ever return for sale via the eShop.
This appears only to apply to the EU eShop since, at the time of writing, there is no such notice on the US eShop News page.Current Crytek USA CEO and former Vigil general manager David Adams has revealed his intention to bid for the Darksiders IP. Adams oversaw the Darksiders franchise at former THQ studio Vigil, which was shut down on January 25 when the bankrupt publisher failed to receive any bids for the studio as it auctioned off its assets.
