Konami Working With Bloober Team On New Projects, One Rumored To Be Related To Silent Hill

Met­al Gear pub­lish­er Kon­a­mi and hor­ror game stu­dio Bloober Team are part­ner­ing up on future projects. Accord­ing to Bloober Team’s announce­ment, the “strate­gic coop­er­a­tion agree­ment” will include “joint­ly devel­op­ing select­ed con­tents and exchang­ing know-how.” Kon­a­mi gave a state­ment to VGC, say­ing the deal allows the two com­pa­nies to “pro­duce games from exist­ing and new IPs.”

It is a his­toric day for me and the cul­mi­na­tion of sev­er­al years of our work,” Bloober Team pres­i­dent Piotr Babi­eno said. “The fact that such a renowned com­pa­ny as Kon­a­mi has decid­ed to strate­gi­cal­ly coop­er­ate with the Bloober Team means that we also joined the world lead­ers in gam­ing and became an equal part­ner for the lead­ing play­ers in this market.”

Kon­a­mi boss Hide­ki Hayakawa also went on to add: “In the dig­i­tal enter­tain­ment indus­try, sig­nif­i­cant changes in the busi­ness envi­ron­ment are expect­ed in the future. We look for­ward to com­bin­ing Bloober Team’s and our respec­tive char­ac­ter­is­tics and strengths to cre­ate high-qual­i­ty contents.”

Sources told VCG that one of the projects is “Silent Hill relat­ed,” though no spe­cif­ic details were giv­en about the poten­tial project.

Bloober Team’s lat­est release was The Medi­um, which launched ear­li­er this year on Xbox and PC, but will be head­ing to the PS5 in Sep­tem­ber of this year. This is also not the first time rumors of Bloober devel­op­ing a Silent Hill game.
