I wonder which Japanese studio is making that rumored PS5 exclusive Silent Hill game now since it looks like it won’t be developed by any Sony 1st party studios. Kojima productions was already dismissed as an option. https://www.reddit.com/r/GamingLeaksAndRumours/comments/lse8s6/sources_playstation_is_winding_down_sony_japan/
Whichever studio they go with it will definitely be outsourced with zero input coming from Sony's own studios. Or to paraphrase it simply: Sony will just buy a timed or full exclusivity of a third party game.
