Last week when Precursor Games teased its crowd funding campaign for a spiritual successor to Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem, we reached out to Silicon Knights to find out how it was connected to the new studio. Today, we received a call from Mike Mays, chief financial officer at Silicon Knights who answered some of our questions.
As reported last week, art assets from Silicon Knights were sold to Precursor Games. Mays told Game Informer a different story. When employees were laid off, they had the option of purchasing art. Denis Dyack did not buy any, but others now at Precursor Games did.
