They are never gonna win that legal battle, the proof was in their game engine.

Silicon Knights, sometimes you got to know when to throw the towel in and call it a day.

You got to know when to hold'em, know when to fold'em, know when to walk away, know when to run. You never count your money when you're sitting at the table, there'll be time enough for counting when the dealing is done.

This has become sad.

Create a new studio without Dyack: "For or Against?"

Silicon Knights has been gutted so that they can just declare bankruptcy and escape from their financial obligations.

And now you can invest your money, without any guarantee into the "absolutely not connected" into Precursor's new vaporware project! Great idea!

Because them only making two shit games in the last 10+ years has nothing to do with it.

WTF are you talking about ? Microsoft didnt kill them , anyone else would pull the plug on something as silly as the whole clusterf*ck development of Too human , and yet they didnt and supported them till the end .

Hell activision had to pull it and force the release of X Men destiny after so much time of vapoware status .

The fault is 100% on Dyack and Silicon .

Suing a bigger company hoping to get some $$$, then getting counter-sued double what you thought you would get. AND you have to pay the attorney fees of the opponent. Millions that you can't easily pay. These are the kinds of blunders that lead to one devaluing one's own life.
