“I’m a big believer in that life prepares you for things, but what I wasn’t prepared for with the Epic litigation was all the damage it caused around me,” Dyack said on this month’s episode of IGN Unfiltered. “Silicon Knights was over 200 people, massive job loss, huge job loss in Niagara. Niagara is a very small town. There wasn’t a lot of tech [companies] there. It was devastating. The impact on the families and all the people that were affected was pretty devastating for me personally. That I wish wouldn’t have happened, but it happened. For me, I’ve been through a lot, but that was a surprise and I wish I could have done better.”
