In two press releases, Konami and Bloober Team today announced their association. This collaboration aims to create new content
Published today, these two press releases remain largely silent. Konami believes that “significant changes are expected in the entertainment industry in the future”: therefore, he thought it wise to create a partnership with Bloober Team. Together with other video game players, Konami and Bloober Team will work on existing and new franchises. Furthermore, Konami explains that this partnership with the Polish studio does not prevent them from “associating with various and varied studios while continuing the internal projects managed by our own teams.” For their part, the Poles of Bloober Team consider themselves happy to work with such a company: the statement of Piotr Babieno, its CEO.
For me, this is a historic day and the culmination of many years of work. The fact that a renowned company such as KONAMI has decided to cooperate strategically with Bloober Team means that we are also among the leaders in video games, and that we have become an equal partner for the main players in the market
But then, what to expect from this association? A veteran of video games, Konami has distinguished itself with franchises that are now world-renowned such as Metal Gear and Pro Evolution Soccer. For its part, Bloober Team is a studio founded in 2008 and focuses its productions on ambiance games/ horror games as the former exclusive Xbox The Medium.
But it is of course Silent Hill which is (already) at the heart of the rumors: if the noise concerning it has already been relaunched recently with Abandoned, this partnership recalls the remarks made by Piotr Babieno earlier in the year: “We’ve been working for over a year on another project, another horrific license, and we’re doing it with a very famous game publisher.”
Once again, we must arm ourselves with tweezers and a handful of salt since nothing about a reappearance of Silent Hill on the front of the stage has been made official.
