Silicon Knights Shuts Down

Developers everywhere do some shady things and until it’s blasted all over the internet, you don’t know about it, but Silicon Knights are on their way to being the next big news in shady developments. Their offices have been cleared out and a lot of gamers are wondering if it has something to do with the fact that the “spiritual successor” for Eternal Darkness is on its way out but there is just no way to tell for sure right now. The first few questions that you can ask as to why a company would be doing this are: is it because they are out of money, is it because of a game being made, or is it because they were bought out by another developer?

In this case, it seems that it is more down the road of that they ran out of money and are just shutting down for a while or because of the millions of dollars they lost altogether. I don’t think that this is a situation where the company is going to be bought out by another one or that the company is just moving. It’s confirmed that they lost multi-million contracts and deals and if a company was waiting for a contract or two to save where they are sitting, then they are already behind. I don’t think that Silicon Knights was going to become a top developer anytime soon but with the recent news of Eternal Darkness and the successor, this was one of the last things that I saw coming.

News of gaming developers is coming out of everywhere and as an active gamer, I never want to hear about a game that is not going to make it, let alone a developer so yes, this is sad news, but it’s not like a developer that is actually flourishing is failing out. More on this is sure to come soon.
