In an interview with GamesIndustry.biz, Piotr Babieno, CEO of Bloober Team, gave more details on the company’s plans and anticipated that his team has been working on an existing terror IP alongside a “very famous publisher”.
After the success of The Medium, the Bloober Team already seems to have a card up its sleeve to continue investing in games of the genre, and everything indicates that its future plans are already very well laid out and should cause a certain furor when they surface. All this because recent rumors indicate that the studio may be ahead of a long-awaited Silent Hill reboot, which is gaining more and more momentum among the community.
“We’ve been working on another game project for another year, another horror IP, and we’re doing it with a very famous publisher,” said Babieno. “I can’t tell you who. I can’t tell you what the project is, but I’m sure that when people realize that we are working on it, they will be very excited.”
Recently, it was confirmed that the Silenthill.com domain was purchased, coincidentally around the same time that Akira Yamaoka, composer of The Medium and Silent Hill, stated that he is working with the Bloober Team on a horror game that fans will enjoy. enough to know what it is.
Two studios working on Silent Hill reboots?
According to VGC reports, Konami talked to Supermassive (Until Dawn) to produce a Silent Hill reboot, but the negotiation ended up being unsuccessful. As such, insiders in the gaming industry believe that in addition to the Bloober Team, “a prominent Japanese developer” has already signed with the publisher to restart the franchise, with an announcement to be made later this summer.
Thus, it is possible that two companies are currently working on a reboot of Keiichiro Toyama’s classic horror saga, but while nothing concrete is announced, all information should be treated as rumors.
