Fresh from GDC, there are two news updates regarding Too Human and Silicon Knights today. First up is a quick video interview with Denis Dyack done by Gamespot. In this interview, Denis gives a little bit of info about all three games Silicon Knights has (or is about to have) in development. We all know about Too Human and the as of yet unnamed Sega project, but the third unannounced game is open to much speculation. Pay particular attention to Denis's comments about the time SK believes a game should be shown.

And after paying attention to those comments, also take a look at the comments from MGS's Shane Kim regarding the status of Too Human.
On Too Human

When asked about the status of Too Human, Kim would not confirm a release date or release year. Kim's comments lean toward a potentially bigger delay to Too Human than expected.

"The game is coming along," Kim said. "It's coming along. We recently saw it. We'll have more to show on it soon. We did it an injustice last year at E3. We showed it too early. Some games take longer than others to develop, and since we have so many great games coming already, it's OK for some to develop slower than others. We already have a lot of games this year."

Really, I think that in Silicons Knigths they are unable to finish games without big delays. I'm starting to think that their other proyects will have to be delayed for the next generation, and I mean for the generation that will come after PS3, X360 and Wii. :lol

Yup. It'd be stupid to try and launch a new IP at the same time as Halo (and GTA).

Too Human would make more of a splash in spring or summer 2008.

This will give them plenty of time to insert various lead pipes for head cracking. A Too Human game without lead pipes is no Too Human game at all.

It'll be next springs game. This year was crackdown and next year will be Too human.

The question I wonder is if they game is still set to be a trilogy.. or if they'll just push it into 1 or 2 parts.

There's absolutely nothing in the body of the interview that would lead you to believe the game is being delayed until next year. Doug is a fool.

If it's a trilogy we'll be playing the final installment on our MicroSonyTendo holo-decks.

Edit: I think the "We already have great games this year" comment points to something,

"Already" as in what has been released to date. Too Human was supposed to come out last fall. He's talking about that delay.

Silicon Knights wouldn't be showing off the game in a couple weeks if it wasn't coming out for another year.

And now I think we know why Nintendo cut them loose. It wasn't some "Nintendo wants to make smaller less epic games" horseshit. It was the fact that they spend a bunch of money and produce nothing.

2012. That's when the final game of the trilogy will be released (on the next-gen Xbox). I wonder how much money this project is eating up.

I think this is right on. I don't think they'd show the game now if it's pushed to 2008.

Was Twin Snakes the last game SK released?

If you ask me, the whole Too Human fiasco is ridiculous. Your game can only become so popular and lucrative. Compare SK to other dev. studios that pump out very successful games, at least once a year or so (none come immediately to mind, but I'm sure you know what I mean).

I think, if you have sales, you can release a small amount of games and be successful.


i.e. Blizzard, Valve, Nintendo (kinda-although you have lots of games there), Id. Silicon Knights, arguably has only had one quasi successful (sales) game. When you have a long development cycle you have to have a megahit. Id and Valve arguably have engine cash, not to mention sales success. Nintendo is Nintendo. Blizzard has monthly revenue streams and sales cash. SK relies on a sugar daddy. One Sugar Daddy dumped them, will Microsoft? Tim Schaefer got cut loose for a far less investment.

I think I remember it from as far back as 1997.

Either way, my favorite looking of all the Too Human games was the GAMECUBE's Ninja with that fat guy.

Maybe there will be an Eternal Darkness 2 on the Wii? :lol
