Legendary game studio Konami and Bloober Team, the developers behind horror games like Scary classes, mediumand Blair Witch, officially announced a “strategic cooperation agreement.” This new game development contract has fans returning to rumors that there is a new Silent Hill game being released amid tons of rumors.
Earlier this year, it was reported that Bloober Team is hard at work on a horror game with a well-known publisher, and today’s announcement has finally revealed exactly which one. According to the Annals of Video GamesKonami said it is “delighted to work with Bloober Team and other highly regarded development partners to produce games from existing and new IPs”.
While all signs point directly to a new Silent Hill game from Bloober Team, there have been reports that Konami has outsourced IP to a well-known Japanese developer. It’s still plausible that Bloober Team could be working on a second Silent Hill project alongside that rumored one.
There have been a lot of rumors surrounding Konami, including that they are looking to outsource more IPs like Metal Gear Solid and Castlevania. It also adds weight to the 2020 rumor that there appear to be two new Silent Hill games being released for the longtime publisher.
Only time will really tell if fans will return to Silent Hill anytime soon. Until then, there are plenty of other horror games to explore, like the flood of recent Resident Evil games dominating the genre.
