New reports citing anonymous sources say that Konami are likely to return to improvement of big games, with both new instalments and remakes prepared for Metallic Equipment Good, Castlevania, and Silent Hill. As very first documented by VGC, quite a few of these games would be designed by exterior studios.
VGC’s resources say that the first new sport will be a “reimagining” of Castlevania made by Konami in Japan.
A new Metal Equipment Solid, meanwhile, is reportedly in improvement by Virtuos, an external studio who traditionally supply developers guidance with 3D asset development. Virtuos most lately labored on Nintendo Change ports for XCOM2 and BioShock, and beforehand assisted with Battlefield 1, Uncharted 4, and quite a few Ubisoft video games.
“The new project is presently in early development and several sources suggested it would be centred about fan-favourite entry Steel Equipment Solid 3: Snake Eater,” say VGC.
There have been numerous preceding rumours about probable long run Silent Hill online games, such as that Polish devleopers Bloober Staff could be making 1. Next on from the VGC report, Gematsu cite nameless sources which say that Hideo Kojima is having a different swing at a Silent Hill game, with Sony’s fiscal backing.
I questioned my own supply, a multipack bar Toffee Crisp, who neither verified nor denied the reports.
Konami seemingly backed away from match enhancement right after the release of MGSV, waving off Hideo Kojima and favouring possibly scaled-down game titles (eg. Metallic Equipment Revive) or pachinko equipment. The number of significant video games they continue to acquire haven’t been well received, either. Earlier this week they launched PES successor eFootball, which is at this time the worst rated video game on Steam.
