Very compelling evidence presented at the first 3:45 mins.
Here’s a pastebin of the evidence: Silent Hill Rumor Timeline - Pastebin.com
Sounds very plausible to me…and considering the close relationship MS have with Bloober Team, I’d bet it’s an exclusive!
What do you think? I’m super excited!
If Silent Hill ends up an Xbox exclusive after years of smoke, that’d low key be funny as fuck. Bloober’s a good fit. Either way, Xbox exclusive, PlayStation exclusive, multiplat, it would just be nice to see Konami use their IP again.
It would be similar to DMCV. I remember one dude on RE that apparently was supposed to be legit and he said there was no word about Xbox. And then it actually was Xbox that had tj game debut at their show, lol.
Silent Hill coming to Xbox at all would be a nice surprise, especially after the ongoing rumors that SH was PS exclusive and done by a team of theirs.
Is there even a possibility that it actually is a PS exclusive by Bloober or doubtful? I keep reading that Bloober “has” to make three games for Xbox. But where is that from?
Gotta say, those are adding up to a rather compelling theory. I think they are right. Also interesting is that the info from the Polish stock exchange seems to suggest MS might now own the IP. I don’t think the ‘global publisher’ they are referring to there can be Konami since it cites them as being ‘on the world leaders in gaming’. If I were a stockholder and heard that language and it ended up being Konami, I’d be furious and felt rather misled.
That said, not seeing where this would tie into MS. Could very well be referring to Sony.
the only tie with ms that I think might be there is that microsoft supposedly has a 3 game deal with bloober, and that all these hints and evidence pieced together points to it being the game they are doing after the medium, which would be game number 3 in the microsoft deal. Now we dont actually know (as far as I know), if this 3 game deal thing is actually real, but it has been ‘common knowledge’ as something that has happened for a long while now. And secondly, assuming this 3 game deal thing is real we dont know if it was for 3 games from bloober at somepoint, with the possibility of another game being made between the 2nd and 3rd games, or if it was for the next 3 games.
Even if it is a real thing (the 3 game deal), there is nothing suggesting those are 3 consecutive projects necessarily. I do wonder about the Sony/SH rumors though as not only did Konami directly say they were false but those rumors also had one of the key ppl on team silent leading the project and iirc that person recently bailed to form their own new studio. There has also been talk lately of MS buying access to IP’s, which might fit into this.
This is interesting too. Remember how MS was said to be shopping for a Polish studio and most thought it was either Techland or Bloober? Then the other day we had Techland rumors swirling…but now Techland explicitly says these rumors are false. Maybe leaves more room for Bloober acquisition talk?
