Too Human developer Silicon Knights is to publish its own titles in the foreseeable future according to industry site GI.biz.
The Canadian developer has received CAD $3 million in government funding and will use the cash to self publish its games, hire 80 new team members and upgrade company tools.
“This is going to benefit Silicon Knights in ways that are profound and long-lasting,” said Denis Dyack, company president.
“With Ontario government support, we are better-positioned to further develop the eighth art of video games. This will enhance our competitive edge within the highly-competitive video game market, help us become a self-sustainable, self-publishing entity, and allow us to enter lucrative global markets.”
As for the games themselves? Well, Dyack wasn’t too keen on mentioning what the studio is up to.
“In our industry, you have to be very careful never to announce anything until the right time. We can only say it’s a next generation title and a high production value game. That’s all we can say.”
Silicon Knights last title was the rather disappointing Too Human, its next title is a new X-Men game which is being made in partnership with Activision.
