Konami to begin The Silent Production Team...

Recommended Posts

This seems like very exciting news. Konami could very well begin work with in-house made Silent Hill games, plus other types of games, as the name for their new group of hired devs sounds like they are meant to succeed Team Silent, who of course worked on the first four (and best) entries in the franchise up to 2004 before disbanding. Basically, they broke up before Konami leased the IP to mostly third parties from other regions outside of Japan before the series became dormant around 2015.

So it seems these other projects Konami announced a year ago are just to kind of test the waters. Yet of course, few people have displayed any gratitude that Konami revived the series to begin with, citing the commotion with Hideo Kojima, the awful HD collection, or their pachinko obsession. But I have kind of accepted that any new games are probably going to be inferior to the old ones. But then I evidently feel like this with RE and Capcom as well, with Capcom making things oh so confusing.

Anyway, here is the Push Square article that has further details on this news.

Well, I recall they had a showcase a little over a year ago, where they announced three games to be outsourced, had a series of vague trailers, and talked about each one briefly, plus a new movie and online interactive series. They are still awaiting release, with the exception of Ascension, the interactive show which started a few weeks ago. That's already available to join, but it is universally hated.

I think their next goal is to make games with their own team, so their projects will probably be very far off.
