Rumoured New Silent Hill Projects Are Not “Gambling Games”

Though the leaker doesn't know if they're still in development.

Konami’s absence from the industry as a developer of actual video games (that are good, so Contra: Rogue Corps doesn’t count) is one of the saddest things audiences have had to endure in recent years, with the company instead choosing to focus its business on slot machines. Recently, however, a ray of hope shone through, when industry insider DuskGolem – who goes by AestheticGamer on Twitter – reported that two new Silent Hill games were in development.

Now, they’ve taken to Twitter again to give some clarifications, starting off with something that many would be glad to hear. Though Konami recently announced Silent Hill slot machine, the two new games relevant to this leak are no “gambling games”, and Konami was allegedly reaching out to proper video game development studios for both projects.,

That said, DuskGolem went on to say that there’s no assurance that the games might end up getting released. Clarifying that they have no knowledge of the inner workings of Konami, they said that they found out about the two games from two people who worked at two of the studios that were approached by Konami- though neither of those teams ended up getting the job. DuskGolem also clarifies that this information is two years old, so there’s no knowing if the new Silent Hill projects are still in development.

As is always the case with unverified leaks, it’s best to take all this with a grain of salt for now- it wouldn’t be the most surprising thing if Konami did indeed cancel both projects (though I certainly hope that’s not the case). Either way, stay tuned to GamingBolt, and we’ll keep you updated in case we hear anything else.
