GameCube classic Eternal Darkness almost certainly has a sequel on the way, according to Denis Dyack, director of developer Silicon Knights.
Dyack has revealed in hisblog that the three-game approach the team took to the forthcoming Xbox 360 game Too Human was always a possibility for Eternal Darkness. Every time the team designs a game, he says, it is intended to tell a story within a larger universe and that other stories are still there to be told.
This means that Too Human's - and now perhaps Eternal Darkness' - story will arc over three self-contained chapters. "We want each game to be a complete experience on its own, the major plot lines will be resolved at the end of each game," said Dyack.
Commenting on Too Human, he added: "Without giving too much away, I can tell you that the theme of each installment will be 'discovery,' 'revenge' and 'enlightenment,' respectively."
The prospect of an Eternal Darkness title appearing on the Xbox 360 is exciting indeed. Here's hoping the team finds time to squeeze it into its very busy development diary soon.
