Konami’s miserable presence in the gaming industry these last few years has been depressing to see for all the fans of its many beloved properties, but recent months have seen several leaks and rumours swirling around that have suggested that some of those properties might be on the verge of coming back. Many (if not most) of these are supposedly being made with external developers though, so what’s actually going on with Konami’s internal development teams?
Well, something is definitely going on. Interestingly enough, Ikuya Nakamura – a Konami veteran who’s been involved with pretty much every Metal Gear Solid title in a number of different roles – has mentioned in his Twitter bio that he’s currently working on a new, unannounced game (via Reddit). According to his bio, Nakamura is serving as the game’s writer and designer. Nakamura’s last game was Metal Gear Survive, so it should be interesting to see what he’s been working on since then.
Some leaks have suggested that a Metal Gear Solid revival is in the works, with Konami planning on licensing out some of its biggest IPs. Leaks have also strongly suggested that multiple new Silent Hill games are in the works, one of which might be being developed by The Medium and Layers of Fear developer Bloober Team.
