Konami and Bloober Team have entered a strategic partnership - XboxEra

KONAMI , one of the world’s largest game publisher, and Bloober Team, have signed a strategic cooperation agreement. It will include jointly developing selected contents and exchanging know-how.

It is a historic day for me and the culmination of several years of our work. 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. – comments Piotr Babieno, president of the Bloober Team.

As part of the agreement, the partners declared cooperation in the development of contents and the exchange of know-how.

We have been providing unique entertainment content and ways to enjoy it through the use of information technology. 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. KONAMI – comments Hideki Hayakawa Representative Director, President Konami Digital Entertainment

Konami Digital Entertainment, which is the core company of Konami Group, develops entertaining content for mobile, console and card games. The company is known for global franchises such as eFootball PES, Metal Gear, Silent Hill, Castlevania, and Contra, as well as the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game series.


This is the worst timeline.

As a person who has not been impressed by any Bloober game, I’m absolutely gutted that Konami chose them to make Silent Hill but the other side of me is really happy for them.

They’ve tried to improve on every game that they’ve made and I think that’s commendable.

I hope it all comes together this time and they can finally make an excellent game with this IP if it’s true.


Not if you want Silent Hill on Xbox

Also, does this mean all the…“vetted” insiders were wrong?


I’ll await their 6 month bans with bated breath


My faith in Bloober Team to deliver a quality experience would make r/atheism cringe.

Well this time they have “big publisher” money behind them so maybe remain hopefully.

I personally have never played a Silent Hill game and won’t start now, but I’m willing to give Bloober the benefit of the doubt on making a decent game.


So let me get this right: When an indie dev with no track record makes a trailer consisting only of asset flips the silent hill community hypes themselves into a frenzy and makes up the stupidest conspiracy theories. But when reality strikes and a solid dev gets a project and a new Silent Hill is made the community melts down?



To be fair the conspiracy about BlueBox involved Kojima.

Anyways great for Bloober Team. I’ve read some time ago that they were hiring/searching for a combat designer. I just wonder how high the budget is for this game.

bloober has released its last two games in GP. Will Microsoft have going to try to release this too?

I only played the “essential” SH games, which are 1-4 , and only semi recently. 1 was awesome with it’s low poly atmosphere. It’s probably the scariest game on PS1. ​2 is a masterpiece. If you were ever only going to play one. It has to be this one. It’s “gaming as an art form”, as some would call it. SH3 I felt was okay/decent… Kinda overrated. Anyone putting it up with 2 is overselling it. And finally 4 has a lot of good ideas but man does it fall flat on its face.

I feel a lot of SH love comes from 2. People always hype this series up like it’s legendary but 2 is the only game that fits into that (1 is really great too just not what I’d say legendarily great). People want another SH2 to happen and the pain of losing Silent Hills after what we saw in PT maybe reaching that level scarred many deeply. I guess this is what led to the rabid fanbase desperate for it to come back.

Frankly I don’t care about Bloober making it or not. If it’s good I’ll play it, if it’s crap, well, I’m content with the ones I played already.

Salt is lovely


Not Playstation exclusive or being made by Kojima. And just like that the ridiculous hype is over and Silent Hill is back to being the middling franchise its been for 15 years.

Just sprinkle it everywhere lol. We will now see people not caring about the franchise again.


man… as a big fan of Silent Hill im having mixed reactions to this news…

now there is a big chance for SH to come back… but by Bloober Team ?


Who else can make a silent hill right now?

I liked the medium. Hoping that bloober makes a good game. It must be really bad for the studio all this bad reception after the announcement.

Red Barrels, but boring fans would only be satisfied with Kojima. Tango would also be a good studio but Playstation fans would collapse.

Bokeh Game Studio or Koei Tecmo

The Medium was very good and the only bad thing with it was Marianne not shutting up more.

Word to @ProgStopper who also had the same complaint lol.
