Silent Hill rumours reignite as The Medium developer teams up with Konami
Bloober Team has signed a development deal with Konami and you don’t need any insiders to tell you what that might mean for Silent Hill.
Konami hasn’t confirmed that Bloober Team is working on a new Silent Hill, but it’s hard to imagine any other reason for the two revealing a ‘strategic cooperation agreement’.
Announced on Bloober Team’s website, the deal will involve ‘jointly developing selected contents and exchanging know-how’.
No specific games or franchises are mentioned but given that Bloober Team has previously said they’re working on an existing horror IP from ‘a very famous gaming publisher’ it’s hard not to jump to conclusions.
There are long-standing rumours pointing towards Bloober Team’s involvement in Silent Hill but never any proof, so it’s still best not to take it for granted. Especially as some rumours suggest there are actually multiple Silent Hill titles currently in production.
For example, website VGC claims that a ‘prominent’ Japanese development is already working on a new Silent Hill game, with the implication that that will be announced first.
There’s nothing to suggest Bloober Team couldn’t be working on multiple different games for Konami and indeed the official announcement does seem to imply more than one project.
The bigger concern for fans of the series is whether Bloober Team are up to the job, as Layers Of Fear and Observer have plenty of detractors and we certainly didn’t think much of the recent The Medium.
Konami was due to take part in E3 2021 but dropped out at the last minute, which suggests that they do have announcements that are relatively close to being made public, but there’s now no clue as to when they might be revealed.
