Gunfire Games is an American video game development studio founded by David L. Adams in 2014.


Gunfire Games originated from the bankruptcy of publisher THQ in 2012, and subsequent liquidation of that company's assets, including Vigil Games. Some workers Vigil began work on a new game Hunt as studio Crytek USA, under Crytek, but due to financial issues at Crytek the project halted.[1] Subsequently, David L. Adams and key members of the teams at Vigil Games and Crytek USA formed Gunfire Games (2014) independently, initially with seven staff, which rose to around 60 persons by 2017.[1]

Early work by the studio included several VR games for both the Oculus Rift and Samsung Gear VR, as well as a remaster of Darksiders II (Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition).[1]
