Silicon Knights' Denis Dyack has declared that we'll be seeing a sequel or two to Eternal Darkness, the under-appreciated survival-horror title that remains one of our favourite GameCube titles.
"I am most often asked if we have sequels in mind for Eternal Darkness," wrote Dyack in his blog over at IGN. "The answer is: absolutely, yes. Although this may not be obvious to those outside of Silicon Knights, anyone inside the guild understands that there is really no other answer. When creating an original game we start by conceptualizing an entire universe. Once the universe is conceptualized we then tell a story within that world."
Dyack refused to elaborate further on what a sequel would involve however, meaning we're left in the dark about which consoles will play host to any new games in the series (though it's fair to assume that one or more of the next-gen machines are likely choices). Nevertheless, any new release in the franchise is sure to generate a considerable buzz - the original Eternal Darkness remains a bit of a cult classic amongst GameCube owners, and you can read why in our review, penned almost three and a half years ago by a youthful Mr Matthew Keller.
Meanwhile, Dyack is currently working on Too Human for the Xbox 360, which we thoroughly enjoyed playing at E3.
