Dennis Dyack of Too Human developer Silicon Knights has confirmed that the Ontario-based developer has had to let some people go, "scaling back to a core group" moving forward.

In November the studio let 45 workers go dropping the head count to about 40. Dyack says the Nintendo rumours are "not true and has no basis in fact". Silicon owes Epic $4.5m.

Chief District Judge James Dever III has dismissed Silicon Knight's key testimony in a lawsuit aimed at Epic Games, which has dealt a serious blow to the developer's case. The court lambasted expert witness Terry Lloyd's damage estimates, calling Lloyd "not qualified" and his testimonial "unreliable and speculative".

The testimony which was dismissed by the court was a six part cost breakdown on theoretical lost income due to Epic for allegedly failing to "provide a working game engine" for Too Human. Epic was accused of "sabotaging" Too Human for the sake of Gears of War.
