Denis Dyack is excited about developing a “most requested” IP
Denis Dyack is the head honcho over at Silicon Knights, creators of Legacy of Kain, Eternal Darkness, and Too Human who in a recent interview with GamesIndustry mentioned that they are revisiting an old IP of theirs. Specifically it is an IP that is “most requested” and looking through the list, we can narrow it down. Legacy of Kain is rumored to be in development at Crystal Dynamics so it probably isn't that, but shouldn’t be completely discounted as Silicon Knights has played a support role in developing games before.
Too Human on the other hand was a flop, despite having some interesting mechanics and space Vikings. So could that mean we are getting a sequel to Eternal Darkness? Maybe for the Wii U? It would make more sense as Eternal Darkness was a Nintendo exclusive and the Wii U is the only next generation hardware we are officially aware of launching in the next year or two. Let’s all just pray that no matter what happens we never have to play another game like X-Men: Destiny. That would be something we can all agree would be awesome.
Super-excited with these news!!!
I sincerely hope that's going to be relly a NEW game, not another of those "HD remakes"...
And please, Silicon Knights, don't make Eternal Darkness a poor Gears of War clone, like some ex-survival horror franchise is making right now ¬¬"
played them NEED MOAR!!!
awww, but I really wanted a Too Human 2....
*looks at Amnesia and Dead Space*
While Eternal Darkness was a flop, Nintendo funded the project so any losses hurt Nintendo more than Silicon Knights. Only saving grace for Nintendo was gaining the rights to the Sanity system.
In Too Human's case, Slicon Kingihts funded the majority of the project over the 10 years and almost ended up causing the company to shut down due to the low sales. They got various funding from other companies but not enough to cover the losses the studio gained from making the game.
im all for eternal darkness 2, been dying for a proper survival horror games
....and the WiiU being the first next gen console has what to do with that at all?
Sean said Too Human was a flop, and that discounts it. Eternal Darkness was a far bigger flop, and so that should discount it as well. I am being consistent, Sean isn't.
Considering that Eternal Darkness was a Gamecube exclusive and that Nintendo published it, it makes sense to put on the Wii U...
Also, when did Sean say Eternal Darkness sold better than Too Human? Sean implies that Eternal Darkness was better than Too Human. You might want to be more consistent buddy.
Whether it's Legacy of Kain or Eternal Darkness, it would trigger the same Daniel Bryan-esqe response http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FbskLwnegbs
"the Wii U is the only next generation hardware we are officially aware of launching in the next year or two."
What the fuck does that have to do with anything?
Also, Sean, might wanna get a bit of consitency. If Too Human was a flop, Eternal Darkness was a complete and utter bust. Too Human sold almost twice as many copies as Eternal Darkness.
The potential for an Eternal Darkness 2 would be very interesting. They could make it for all systems but only Nintendo owns the Sanity Effects which helped make the first game great. Most likely it would be only for the Wii U which would be great for the console and interesting to see what gets done with the Tablet for potential sanity effects.
I'm up for a sequel to any of those titles, though Eternal Darkness II would be at the top of my want list. And yes. No one wants another X-Men: Destiny.
I'm all up for Eternal Darkness II.
It'd be nice to play with those sanity effects again.
holy fuck balls
While I'm aware it's an unnecessary sequel, this would probably be the best news all year. Come on Sillicon Knights, give us that pleasure!!!!!
By Mantorok, ED2 would be glorious!!
FUCKING DO IT!!!!
