Silicon Knights resurrecting its "most requested" IP for next-gen

Legacy of Kain or Eternal Darkness? Place your bets...

Dennis Dyack, founder of Silicon Knights and crusader for a one console future, has said his studio is returning to its roots to work on its "most requested" IP.


Speaking to GamesIndustry, Dyack indicated the game in question is being developed for the next batch of consoles.

"We're really excited and we're working on our next generation stuff. We're working on an IP that's our most requested and we're really excited about that," he said.

"We're going back to our roots. I'm really looking forward to a point in time when we can talk about it."

Silicon Knights' track record has been patchy of late. After spending years in development limbo Too Human was released in 2008 and received a tepid reception. Its last title, X-Men: Destiny, was a disappointment to say the least.

The studio is most famous for developing Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain for the PlayStation and Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem for GameCube. It may be that the "most requested" property Dyack is referring to is one of these.

Last week a rumour circulated suggesting Tomb Raider developer Crystal Dynamics is already working on a Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver reboot.
