Too Human suffered from a fairly difficult development period, and received a bit of a critical beating upon release, but the game retains a cult following. According to Silicon Knights boss Denis Dyack, there is still a possibility that a sequel may see the light of day.
“I think as long as Silicon Knights is still around there is still hope,” he said, talking to Industry Gamers. “You know, in some ways Too Human got a bad rap, and there are all kinds of details. A lot of what happened with Too Human is going to come out in the court case, which is May 14.”
The court case Dyack is referring to is Silicon Knights legal dispute with Epic, after Denis Dyack accused them of not providing enough Unreal Engine support during Too Human’s development.
“Bottom-line, and this is pretty public, we went through hell last generation by trying to adopt the Unreal Engine,” claimed Dyack. “It hurt us so dramatically that it affected us a lot, all the way through. You know, we’re hoping to fix that this gen. We’ve suffered a lot, that’s all I can say.”
