Despite a lukewarm critical reception, developer Silicon Knights is keen on completing the planned Too Human trilogy. "We intend to finish the trilogy but no comment beyond that..." Silicon Knights boss Denis Dyack told Industry Gamers.
Released on August 19, 2008, Too Human ended the month of August with sales under the 200,000 unit mark. According to the NPD Group, Too Human achieved sales of 168,200 units during its release month. Too Human was the eighth best-selling title of the month.
Dyack added to his vague statement regarding the franchise's fate. "You know, there's very public litigation around that," he said, referring to the ongoing battle between Silicon Knights and Epic Games. Silicon Knights claims it was forced to rebuild the game's engine due to Epic licencing the Canadian developer 'less than complete' code for Epic's Unreal Engine 3.
The case between Silicon Knights and Epic Games has been given the nod to go in front of a federal jury, though some claims in the case were dismissed by court. After the trail was pushed to a federal jury, a statement from Epic Games noted that the company "remains confident that it will be fully vindicated at trial."
