The once mighty developer Silicon Knights, which gave us Eternal Darkness, just laid off nearly half its workforce. Word is that plans fell through with a would-be publisher, so the company had to let go of 43 people.
A Silicon Knights spokesperson says “the company is currently refocusing and returning to its roots, working on one of its most requested titles for the next generation.”
Of course, that sounds like raw PR speak, and could mean absolutely anything. Still, interneters not too distracted by their hate of SK founder Denis Dyack are variously hopeful for the returns of Legacy of Kain and Eternal Darkness. Square Enix owns the rights to the former of those properties, and Nintendo the latter, which makes those hopes all the less likely, and all the more juicy.
