Yesterday rumours were about that Silicon Knights had cut staff numbers. Well, Silicon Knights have confirmed there have been layoffs but not as much as the 75% of staff that some were saying.
Mike Mays, Chief Financal Officer of Silicon Knights confirmed the layoffs and said that staff numbers were now “just under 40”. The layoffs were due to a project that got cancelled which “resulted in us having too many people so we had to do a layoff.”
Silicon Knights had recently completed work on X Men Destiny. Another staff member commented in a separate interview saying “the company is currently refocusing and returning to its roots, working on one of its most requested titles for the next generation.”
Silicon Knights were developers of ‘Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain’ & ‘Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem.’
