Too Human dev confirms cuts, working on next-gen title

Silicon Knights has confirmed recent rumors of huge cuts at the studio, though it’s not quite as bad as originally reported. Instead of the believed 70+, the Too Human developer has laid off 45 with “just under 40” still at the studio.

In a piece in the Financial Post, Silicon Knights CFO Mike Mays says the firings may be temporary; the studio is in the middle of negotiating contracts for new projects and, if successful, hopes to rehire its staff.

As for what the studio is up to on the development end, a company rep has provided a proper tease to Kotaku: “The company is currently refocusing and returning to its roots, working on one of its most requested titles for the next generation.”
