Vigil’s acclaimed Darksiders II is slated to be unavailable for digital download in Europe come the end of March. The Nintendo Channel states that the title will no longer be available on the European Wii U eShop from March 31.
For those who have already purchased the title, the feature to re-download the game will remain available, but no new purchases will be possible. The reason behind this sudden development remains unknown and open for speculation at the current time.
Vigil games is now defunct, and the Darksiders franchise is currently in limbo following the closure of THQ. The series is still pending any prospective buyers, so perhaps this absence from the eShop will smooth over once the franchises sees some ownership stability.
