Konami forms partnership with Bloober Team, sparking Silent Hill rumours
Konami announced this morning that it’s signed a “strategic cooperation agreement” with Bloober Team, which confirms that the two companies will work on developing games together.
Bloober Team's most recent title was The Medium, and is best known for developing horror titles like Blair Witch and Layers of Fear, while Konami has one of the most influential horror IPs with Silent Hill.
The Partnership: Today's news has sparked rumours about a potential Silent Hill game, with Konami telling us that it's "excited to work with Bloober Team and other highly regarded development partners to produce games from existing and new IPs."
Konami also mentioned the following IPs in the press release that Bloober Team issued to the public:
- Metal Gear
- Silent Hill
- Earlier this year in February, Bloober Team CEO Piotr Babieno informed GI.biz that the team was working on a horror title with a well-known publisher.
- VGC reports that Konami could be working on two Silent Hill projects, with one being outsourced to an unnamed Japanese studio and then another one with Bloober Team.
P.T.'s Ashes: Silent Hill was last seen as a playable teaser called P.T., which released on the PlayStation Store in 2014, but was ultimately cancelled when Konami had a widely publicised fallout with Hideo Kojima. Could the franchise be about to return from the ashes, and can Bloober Team bring it back to its former glory?
