Silicon Knights Hasn’t Ruled Out Eternal Darkness Sequel
On GamesIndustry, Dennis Dyack, the top Maple Leaf over at Canadian developer Silicon Knights, is said to be open to the possibility of a sequel to the company’s GameCube critical hit, Eternal Darkness.
“I don’t think it is too much to ask,” Dyack said in response to whether or not the developer might revisit the game. “Certainly we love Eternal Darkness. It’s a project that’s near and dear to our hearts.”
Of course, that’s not much in the way of confirmation that a new Eternal Darkness is coming. In fact, I wouldn’t bet on it. I mean, this is the company that said last year they’re going to finish their Too Human trilogy—which we all know is just not going to happen.
Silicon Knights has hit some trouble recently. In October, they laid off over half of their staff, only a few short months after receiving a grant from the Canadian government that was intended to help secure jobs. And, of course, X-Men: Destiny was hot garbage. So there’s that.
And that’s not even touching the issues the company’s had with Epic Games.
So, yeah. Sequel to a GameCube game. Sure.
