Forums - Gaming Discussion - Rumor: two new Silent Hill games in development at Konami, one a soft reboot and the other an Until Dawn/Telltale-style episodic game

[SOURCE]

Well, I WISH I could get excited for this, but Konami has had such a terrible track record butchering beloved IPs that I just can't. Does nobody remember what they did with Contra Rogue Corps and Metal Gear Survive? And a Castlevania mobile game? Not to mention their track record with Silent Hill: losing the source code and botching the SH2&3 remasters, cancelling PT/Silent Hills, whoring out games to 3rd rate Western developers that fumble, and making a Silent Hill pachinko machine.

Don't get me wrong, I'd LOVE to be wrong and for both these games to be amazing (I LOVE Silent Hill), but they give me no reason to have high hopes for them.

Well that truly have potential. It can be great or dreadful.

TBH an Until Dawn/Telltale-style game in the Silent Hill series could be amazing... if done well... if done well... if done well...



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

The telltale one most likely is a western Dev



I really enjoyed Until Dawn so an Until Dawn style game for this would be very interesting.



Around the Network

I like until dawn, but until dawn is until dawn. Even the remake of silent hill 1 (the frozen World) was good, I prefer old style gameplay and combat, as well as tank controls. They should include that as a gameplay/control options, so we oldschool gamers can get our fix.

They're on that medium rare fence that's all the rave now >.<

Won't hold my breath, especially after they turned Contra into Smash TV crossed with a turd.

And Metal Gear into a zombie survival game/fence poker simulator. And charged $10. For.A.Second.Save.Slot. They even somehow managed to fuck up Super Bomberman R:

I'd love to be wrong and to enjoy the hell out of both these games, but this is modern day Konami we're talking about here.



Will hope that they turn out well. I don't usually play horror games myself, but I do watch everything that Scary Game Squad plays, and I have a feeling they will play both of these.
