Konami Might Have Two Silent Hill Reboots in Progress
Konami might have two Silent Hill reboots in the works, a new report from Video Games Chronicle says, and The Medium's Bloober Team might be handling one of them.
VGC's Andy Robinson said separate sources confirmed that Konami has been trying to find a developer for one Silent Hill reboot for a while now and finally outsourced it to a "prominent Japanese developer." However, other sources suggest Konami wants more than one reboot for the series, one faithful to the original games and the other approaching it from a different angle.
That's where Bloober Team might come in. The speculation of Bloober's involvement comes from a new interview Bloober's CEO, Piotr Babieno, gave with GamesIndustry.biz. Babieno told GIBiz the team is working on a new and exciting action-horror game:
[It's] another horror IP, and we’re doing this with a very famous gaming publisher. I can’t tell you who. I can’t tell you what the project is, but I’m pretty sure when people realize we’re working on it, they will be very excited.
VGC's sources say at least one Silent Hill game should be revealed this summer. All this follows a year of Silent Hill development rumors and cancellation rumors. Whatever the case, it seems likely Silent Hill creator Keiichiro Toyama won't be involved, as he's hard at work on Bokeh Studio's inaugural death-game title.
