Developer Silicon Knights are ‘Definitely Alive’

By   /   3 years ago

Developer Silicon Knights are “definitely alive” and hopefully still kicking, even though the studio took a ride downhill last year.

Speaking with Polygon, Silicon Knights’ chief financial officer Mike Mays said that the studio was still alive but would not say where they were currently located or on what projects they are working on.

Previously, the studio had to close down its offices, downsize its staff and even sell most of its equipment. The studio’s former president Denis Dyack also left to form Precursor Games and was one of the buyers of Silicon’s equipment.

“Silicon Knights was selling off extra assets to laid-off employees and we, along with others, purchased some of them,” said Precursor Games CEO Paul Caporicci when asked. “Like so many others who have been laid off in this difficult economy, we are simply trying to turn a tough situation into something positive. This helps give us an opportunity with Shadow of the Eternals to give the gamers something that they have been wanting.”

In May 2012 Epic Games filed a $4.45 million lawsuit against Silicon Knights which they eventually won in November 2012. Silicon Knights was then ordered to destroy all copies of ‘Too Human’ and the awful X-Men: Destiny.

Precursor Games is currently working on Shadow of the Eternals, a spiritual successor to cult survival horror title Eternal Darkness.
