i have looked around many websites for the answer to this but still nothing to say whether or not the second game to the too human trilogy is going to be released, i loved the first game and when i saw some announcements that the game was actually a trilogy it got me thinking... but the real question is was too human the end of the trilogy for silicon knights or with the carry on this fantastic story line to rise of the giants??
" I'd love to see them take everything from the original and try to improve it. I think it could be an Assassin's Creed-type situation where the second is much better than the first. "Maybe, but it's a much easier to get a second chance when your supposedly not very good (but actually very good) first game sells ~8 million copies.

I remember first hearing about Too Human though. The concept alone has so much potential. I'd just love to see it done well.
I thought Too Human was amazing. So naturally I hope they come out with a second one. But, Silicon Knights is working on the next X-Men RPG which looks like it could be awesome.
Also, people tend to not really realize what Too Human actually went through before it came out. How many platforms it was developed for, how many different gameplay styles it had.
Too Human was a really rough diamond. All it needed was more shape, and a lot more polish for it to really shine. It also needed to be longer. I beat the damn game in 8 hours, and that is just disgusting for an RPG.
There is a wealth of potential in the setting, and the characters (while pedestrian) served their roles well. I particularly enjoyed the SK take on Hell, but the damn cliffhanger ending and the promise of MOAR probably put a lot of people off, as did the combat. Bottom line? I hope that SK gets another crack at Too Human. They're a damn good studio and if Ubisoft Montreal got a second chance with AC2 (not deriding the first title, I thoroughly enjoyed it), then SK definitely deserves it if only for the pedigree behind that studio.
Too Human was handled so damn poorly that it will most likely never get a shot at a sequel. Just too much stupid. Dyack especially was horrible: He was overly defensive, he kept making insane promises, he focused too much on talking about what the future games would be like instead of what the first game would be like, etc. Hell, I remember him saying that his favorite class WASN'T IN THE GAME BECAUSE HE WAS SAVING IT FOR THE SEQUEL. That's just a new level of durrr. This is the game that people should look at when they consider making their game into a series of games right from the get go. Learn from this trainwreck, and don't do what Silicon Knights did.
I feel bad for Silicon Knights. Too Human had such a rough dev cycle and then the Internet exploded all over it. The final game wasn't great, but it was solid and had some really cool ideas. Had it been removed from all that drama I think more people would have liked it., but just having it come out and not be total garbage is a victory given all the complete revisions it went through.
" Frankly I'm surprised they haven't announced their closure. Too Human is the kind of failure that can end a studio, especially after the time and money that got sunk into it along with a mountain of hype. "They've been propped up by a seizable loan from the Canadian government.
I hope so. The original wasn't as bad as the haters made out.
It was unfortunate that many people jumped on the "Too Human is garbage" train as they thought it was the cool thing to do. While the release wasn't perfect it didn't deserve all the finger poking. Albeit Dyack's performance on GAF didn't help.
The fact it took them nearly a decade to make Two Human and are now doing a licensed X-Men RPG should be all the information you need to know. They are most likely simply trying to get some money in order to do things they want to do. So, I suppose you can never discount a Two Human sequel but it won't be happening anytime soon and will likely hinge on the success of this X-Men RPG.
The game reviewed pretty poorly, and general player reactions were not much better. With Silicon Knights working on the X-Men RPG, I don't see a new Too Human anytime soon. That said, Dennis Dyack loves that series like it's his baby. If they can get some good traction with the X-Men RPG, they could use the positive PR and money to try and get another Too Human going.
