Working On "One Of Its Most Requested Titles"
Silicon Knights, the Canadian developer in the grip of massive layoffs and publishing woes after a couple of misfiring titles, has announced that they're working on revamping one of their classic IPs for a new generation. Speaking to Kotaku, Silicon Knights confirmed the rumoured job losses, but came out swinging with the following exciting tidbit.
"The company is currently refocusing and returning to its roots, working on one of its most requested titles for the next generation."
So, what could this mean? Silicon Knights will have to own the rights to the IP in order to switch publishers, meaning that the smart money is on them acquiring rights to Blood Omen: Legacy Of Kain from Square Enix - who have past form in selling off properties that they don't plan to develop. Eternal Darkness 2 would also be wonderful, but they'd need to wrestle with Nintendo or make a pledge to develop for the Wii U. We'll keep you posted.
