Silicon Knights to Expand Operations; Too Human Rumored for Release in May

Silicon Knights is looking to expand their Niagara, Ontario offices as part of a newly announced plan to jump-start the ailing, formerly industrial economy of the region, according to the Welland Tribune.

The studio is planning to add 80 new employees to its current workforce of 165. The boost is part of a plan called nGen, meant to establish a "new-media incubator" to reinvigorate the Niagara economy and retain skilled citizens from leaving the region for more lucrative opportunities elsewhere.

Silicon Knights' Too Human (X360) is scheduled for release on May 6 according to this week's GameStop newsletter, ending an infamously lengthy development period reaching as far back as the PlayStation era. The new release date sets Too Human just one week after Rockstar North's Grand Theft Auto IV (PS3, X360).
