According to some reports, Silicon Knights has cut its workforce. Silicon Knights, developer of Too Human and X Men: Destiny, has gone from 97 staff members to just 25, say some insiders. The company, based in Ontario, Canada, has not given any official response to these reports.
1Up was told that “Silicon Knights has had massive layoffs. They are now down to a core staff of 25 people.”
In July, Silicon Knights had received $3million CND from the local government as the company had been expected to grow by 80 staff members to work on new projects.
However, the average review scores and reception that both Too Human, and more recently, X Men Destiny received may have had a financial impact on the firm.
