Shadow of the Eternals Teased: Successor to Eternal Darkness
Being developed by Precursor Games and not Silicon Knights.
Last year, when X-Men Destiny was released to universally bad reviews, several employees began coming out about what was happening at Silicon Knights (long story short: Denis Dyack’s insanity during the Too Human phase was just the start). But one interesting revelation was that the company was diverting resources meant for Destiny to work on the sequel to Eternal Darkness.
That project never got very far though. Now, however, IGN posted a teaser trailer for something called Shadow of the Eternals, developed by Precursor Games. It’s billed as being “from the creators of Eternal Darkness”, and the developers will be announcing a crowdfunding campaign for the same on Monday.
Whether the studio is related to Silicon Knights or is composed of former stalwarts is unknown. We’ll to wait till Monday for more information on just what Shadow of the Eternals really is, beyond that it could be a successor to Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem.
