Silicon Knights Fights Back - Disputes Nintendo Rumour

Silicon Knights Fights Back - Disputes Nintendo Rumour on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Earlier this week unconfirmed reports suggested Silicon Knight's collaboration with Nintendo had ended, but the studio dispute this.

The rumour suggested that the pair had been forging a sequel to the fan-favourite GameCube classic, Eternal Darkness, but it had to be cancelled due to legal issues and finances within the company.

According to CEO Denis Dyack, speaking to GamesIndustry, there have had to be a handful of staff unfortunately laid off, but there isn't any truth in the Nintendo side of things.

As to the rumor about Nintendo, it is not true and has no basis in fact. We are scaling back to a core group and focusing all our efforts on future opportunities.

So as it stands, who knows just what is coming from the famed studio. Could Eternal Darkness 2 be on the way to 3DS or Wii U near you?

Hooray! I know many folks will be thrilled to hear this. Smilie

Sucks how people lost their jobs but I am GLAD to hear that it's atleast still POSSIBLE for an Eternal Darkness 2!!

It is not wise to speak on subjects you do not know all facts about, nor is it smart to judge a game based on looks alone. PSN: Nintendo_Gamer 3DS: 4296-3029-7422

ED2 is still on in my mind, I've never doubted that.


ED2 is in design for WiiU on the evidence of recently uncovered patents.

I heard about the patent filing last year, unless you're referring to some other patent. If I recall, Nintendo re-trademarked the name in like November.
