Silicon Knights lay-offs and debunked rumors
Hardly surprising, Silicon Knights has confirmed that a few of its staff members have been let go. Denis Dyack confirmed to GamesIndustry that “Silicon Knights has unfortunately had to lay off a small number of people. We are scaling back to a core group and focusing all our efforts on future opportunities”. Well that sucks, but what about the Nintendo rumor?
When we put up the rumor about Nintendo pulling out of a deal with Silicon Knights, it was just that. A rumor. So when Denis Dyack denied the death of Eternal Darkness 2 stating “as to the rumor about Nintendo, it is not true and has no basis in fact”, I wonder if he should have clarified what part. As far as I am concerned, this means Eternal Darkness 2 is in fact a thing. Hooray!

So, is it that you have poor taste and actually like Too Human and Xmen Destiny? Or is it just that you're so blind you're willing to overlook those games because they once made a good game a full decade ago?
Yeah, Eternal Darkness was 10 years ago - forgot that part, did you?
"They once made good games, what's to say they can't once again?"
Don't give me that crap about how they could totally come back and be great again. When has that happened in the history of videogames? No, not when did you want it to happen, when has a developer who have been regularly been making some of the worst games ever suddenly redeemed themselves instantly? Still waiting on that supposed time when Rare will turn around and be great again. How did John Romero do on redeeming himself after Daikatana?
The closest this has ever come to happening, ever, is Sonic Team. And even then. nobody could possibly call Sonic Generations as good as Sonic CD.
You are being irrational. Silicon Knights suck, they will always suck, and there is absolutely nothing salvageable there. Move the fuck on.
i've noticed that SK's good games were on the gamecube, hopefully they can bring that over to the wii U... but if they fuck up Eternal Darkness 2, I hope they crash and burn even harder
They once made good games, what's to say they can't once again? With enough focus, they can do it.
Honestly I'd rather Nintendo bought the IP from them and hand it off to a better studio at this point. Even at their best Silicon Knights' games were always hugely flawed. Have you played Eternal Darkness lately? It hasn't aged well at all. Twin Snakes was great but they already had the foundations of a great game to work with.
Fuck man, what I wouldn't give for another Eternal Darkness game.
Amen to that.
Because people other than you like Silicon Knights and want them to succeed despite their setbacks?
I approve of this
Too Human was marred because it had to switch engines and start over from scratch, X-Men Destiny was a licensed property and those are norotoriously hard to make a "good" game out of to begin with. I know it's been a long time, but they did the remake of Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes and Eternal Darkness. Eternal Darkness especially, because they made that game on their own accord (never mind the fact it's origins were a N64 game), but it shows that they have the talent somewhere in there when left to their own devices and their own scheduling.
If the studio must be closed, let Eternal Darkness 2 survive and let it be the swan song. Otherwise, let the studio live and give it a chance to redeem itself.
Its confirmed Hooray! And will now be made by a telentless studio adept at making awful games, only now with deep personel cuts....
Why is that a good thing again?
I hope the people who got laid off land on their feet and who knows Epic may take them. They could learn something so they could do more damage to Silicon Knights
I see wat u did thar
Though sad to hear about jobloss, a ray of light in the eternal darkness is always welcome
A happy day indeed!
