After all – what could be better than putting their beloved property in the hands of a studio with actual talent and passion? Or reviving the last good game that Konami put its name on?
Unfortunately, those rumors finally did get Konami’s attention, and they felt obligated to actually address them when talking to Rely on Horror:
“We’re aware of all the rumors and reports but can confirm that they are not true. I know it’s not the answer your fans may want to hear... It’s not to say we are completely closing the door on [Silent Hill], just not in the way it is being reported.”
Konami has been hard to put a pin on in recent years, surviving thanks to its sports games and pachinko machines and occasionally putting out a game, but they seem to have stalled pretty significantly on anything else. They’re a bit like Valve, if instead of Steam, they had gambling.
Either way, Silent Hills isn’t coming to us from Konami. Sad, but true.
