Silicon Knights closes office & sells assets, but remains alive

http://www.oxmonline.com/silicon-kni...-remains-alive

I find this hard to believe, given Too Human's poor reception and the recent court order to destroy all unsold copies of SK's Unreal Engine 3 games. I'm sure it will only be a matter of time before Silicon Knights bites the dust.

This is one odd piece of news

http://www.polygon.com/2013/5/9/4316..._source=feedly

So some of the guys from silicon created a new studio, is now making a spiritual successor to a game the former studio created, let alone they bought some of Silicon knights stuff, and they cant be held liable for Silicon knights debts unless epic files another lawsuit in court.

Be interesting to see what they will do next. Maybe another Too Human, as I lived that game. One of a select few that did.

Too Human, when it comes down to brass tacks... was awful. Had a semi-decent story, one that I would like to see completed, but in a better built game.

I need to get my hands on a copy of Xmen Destiny so I can complete that. Got Too Human though, haven't played it yet.

Hopefully the new company works out for them and all those people who were laid off can find work or have found work.

Think many have. Cousin of mine used to work there, he left almost two years ago for Ubisoft Toronto, SK's been in a state of dystrophy for a long long time. Even before the Epic scuffle.

Oh god ya. There is a surprising amount of game jobs out there if you've got skill.

Didn't they make the Legacy of Kain series ? I loved the first one on PlayStation. Kain reminds me of the Witcher...

Silicon Knights was most recently responsible for Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain, Eternal Darkness, Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes, Too Human, and X-men: Destiny. For the most part they have a pretty solid track record and it's a shame to see them die off, but Precursor is supposedly crowdsource funding a spiritual successor to Eternal Darkness, the best game of SK's library, and Denis Dyack is still in charge of it, so all is right with the world.

Get it cheap. When it came out my nephew rented it for PS3. I got 90% of the trophies within 3 days. Not much replay value other then the X amount of kills achivements.


Ontopic-Tough love,I can't recall an awesome game these guys have made in years. Lets hope the new stuido make a new Legacy of Kain game. That game series was awesome.

Crystal Dynamics (Tomb Raider) is in charge of the Soul Reaver Licence and I think they will be creating the next installment in the series may it be Legacy of Kain or Blood Omen themselves.

My bets on Eternal Darkness

All I need on x-Men destiny is to beat the game on the hardest level (I Think). I screwed up the trick to just replay the last level for the achievement.
