If at first you don’t succeed try, try and try again.
Nearly a year and half after the official collapse of his studio Silicon Knights, IGN reports that Denis Dyack has formed a new company – Quantum Entanglement Entertainment.
And its first project will be Shadow of the Eternals, the game he has failed to crowdfund on two previous attempts, leading to Dyack launching a scathing attack on the press in the process.
Dyack insists that the company will be more than just a game dev and will also create TV shows and movies. He refers to the merging of the three as ‘the singularity’ and that’s the idea that will govern the studio’s focus.
Dyack will serve as CCO of Quantum Entanglement with TV pair Jonathan Soon-Shiong and Paul Rapovski named as CEO and COO respectively.
"A lot of the television that you’re seeing is really bleeding into a lot of the things that we do in video games," Dyack said. "A lot of the things that you see in film are bleeding into a lot of the things that we do in video games. I wanted to do something that was a lot more than just video games.
"(We’re) looking at it from a film and television side. We’ve got more going on that we’re just not ready to talk about yet."
In 2012 Silicon Knights lost a legal battle with Epic Games regarding breaches of the Unreal Engine licensing agreement, resulting in a court order to destroy unsold copies of X-Men: Destiny and Too Human.
