In 2011, Silicon Knights began working on a new game for a next generation console. The studio had early Wii U development kits, which made it safe to assume that they were working with Nintendo on Eternal Darkness 2 for Wii U. Silicon Knights once had over 100 employees but was forced to decrease its number to 40. The studio is in another position where layoffs are their only option, which apparently made Nintendo cancel Eternal Darkness 2 – at least for now.
That’s too bad
WAHAHA! too bad! Ah well better games out there guys!
No. There ayrn’t. Curse you for your blasphemy.
No dan is right there are better games out there.
No, there isn’t. Die heretic.
No, there isn’t. Die heretic.
Well, Ed for the gamecube does have 92 on metacritic.
and if metacritic told you to jump off a cliff would you do that too? reviews are crap. Play the games yourself and judge.
I have played ED and it was fantastic so go forth and die.
I did play the game and it deserves a 100 in my opinion, so your point is?
Didn’t know there was an E.D. 2 in progress haha.
That was such a good game D: …I want the sequel
That’s messed up. If Nintendo were to find a different developer to create that game…
you seem a bit obsessed with them
yea dude it would be ok if they made an ice climbers game but Eternal darkness isn’t that old
I still have my Gamecube copy. ; /
Would it be wise for Nintendo to purchase the company and include them as apart of their 1st Party development teams or is that too farfetched?
So…it’s not farfetched? Or are you saying it isn’t wise?
Damn that sucks!!!
Son of a motherfuckin fuck, that was the main reason why I wanted a Wii U. (Well, one of the main reasons)
You know, assuming it was being made at all, I mean.
Out of all the possible games to cancel, they had to cancel THAT ONE?
Do they live in a hole or something where they don’t realize how important games like Eternal Darkness are? Hole-y crap.
Both parties can learn a lesson from this:
Nintendo, BUY SILICON KNIGHTS NOW AND JUST MAKE THEM YOUR INEVITABLE NEXT FIRST-PARTY COMPANY.
And Silicon, ALWAYS STICK WITH NINTENDO FROM NOW ON. AT LEAST THEN YOU WON’T BE MAKING CRAPPY GAMES LIKE X-MEN DESTINY OR TOO HUMAN AND GET CAUGHT UP IN UNNECESSARY UNREAL ENGINE 3 LEGAL BATTLES.
eternal darkness is crap…. get over it!!!!!!
What do you really have against Eternal Darkness? This is no place to talk shit about this game and tell people to get over it, you know. :/
erm its a blog where you can air an opinion… dont like it? tough darkness fanboy. I bought it and was one of the worse GC games I ever bought. They left Nintendo so tough!
When do I ever said I’m a fanboy? I’m only just saying because there may be some people who gonna leave some hates reply to you, Daniel.
Clearly Nintendo doesn’t think that Silicon Knights is worth buying or financing Eternal Darkness 2.
“Silicon Knights began working on a new game for a next generation console. The studio had early Wii U developer kits, which made it safe to assume that they were working with Nintendo on Eternal Darkness 2 for Wii U.”
Now how the hell do you know that Silicon Knights was working with Nintendo to make Eternal Darkness 2?
Did it ever occur to you that maybe that they where making a different game?

They should had never left Nintendo in the first place.
this! They will be punished and thrown on the streets haha
And the source for this story is?
Let’s be realistic right now, Nintendo knows there is a large group of gamers just begging for a sequel, but is it large enough to justify a full fledged game? I’m not sure. I personally assumed we would see an HD remake first on Xbox 360, followed by a sequel if that remake did well – that hasn’t happened yet.
And yes, I know Eternal Darkness was on the Gamecube, but Silicon Knights haven’t done anything for Nintendo since the Gamecube era and has instead work on Microsoft’s console. And during this era, they’ve only made two games, the okay “Too Human” and the critically abysmal “X-Men Destiny”. Considering these recent “flops”, would we really want a sequel from them? Maybe if they got some serious support, but with the string of layoffs and court issues – I just don’t think they have what it takes to make the blockbuster Eternal Darkness 2 we all had hoped for.
Let’s just hope if they do close shop, they are bought out by a strong 3rd party (or even a company like Nintendo) and that their franchises are developed by a more stable company.
Well Nintendo owns the patent for the sanity effect and I don’t remember but I think they own Eternal Darkness as well.
This is terrible news. I’ve been waiting for this game for years.
