I can see Bloober Team taking what was established in PT and running with it. Fully expect the next Silent Hill to be like that.

Of course I expect plenty of bitching and moaning “it’s not like Silent Hill”

Cue Konami “We thought you loved the PT demo?!! FFS we just can’t win with you moody bitchy gamers we’re going back to pachinko machines. Fuck all y’all”

And that my friends is why we can’t have nice things.

Fucking Konami...

After years of terrible Silent Hill sequels getting outsourced to mediocore european studios, did they learn anything?

NO! They once again give this franchise to a studio which has done nothing but utter mediocrity.

I am legit raging here.

I thought Kojima was secretly working on SH again?

Seems like Konami is giving the series the same old Homecoming/Downpour treatment - thats all this is.
Look, the series is dead.
Team Silent is not replaceable.
Silent Hill in name only from here forward.

Going from Guillermo del toro and Kojima to bloober team... I hope the two silent Hill games in development rumor is true.

Great, Bloobler is a great team and already have experience in the genre. They will do great if provided with enough resources.

If you read the details it seems they're helping with new SH but maybe not doing it alone. That could work.

After all the threads and comments that it is going to be ps5 exclusive, this is really funny.
Going from P.T and Kojima to Bloober is like getting ready to have a threesome with Riley Reid and Remy Lacroix in their prime only for them to walk out and bring in Anita Sarkeesian taking their place.
This has always been the rumor, along with another SH game.

Bloober Team is a good dev but not a great one. Silent Hill could and has done a lot worse, but this is probably not the way to relaunch the series.

But this is Konami we're talking about, so...

Bloober's most recent games. Unless something magical happens with Konami and budget, expect a 70/100 game.

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.
I'm okay with this. I actually really enjoyed The Medium a lot more than I thought I would. It had a good mix of spookums, storytelling, and gameplay which is exactly what I would expect from a Silent Hill game. Blair witch was pretty alright too, though not as good. Layers of Fear I also really liked.

They'll do fine.

Bloober Output : just about average

Layers of Fear - 74 MC
Layers of Fear 2 - 70 MC
Observer - 78 MC
Blair Witch - 69 MC
The Medium - 75 MC

Their games are definitely not for everyone but I quite enjoyed both Observer and Blair Witch. Both games have an element of delirious mind-fuck to them which could work quite well in the Silent Hill universe. You just kind of have to look beyond some of the jank and let yourself get immersed in the story. Ace sound design and music though , which is a big part of building atmosphere, but it seems like you are missing out on a lot the games offer in this department if you don't play with a headset or otherwise proper audio setup. Ultimately I have high hopes Blooper Team can deliver if they try. They probably are aware that this is their chance to really make a mark on the industry if they deliver a proper Silent Hill experience so I'd like to think its all hands on deck for them and they are ready to show us what they are truly capable of.

Still have yet to play the Medium but I'll jump into that this week.

Well, the Observer is a great game, so I'm not that disappointed.

But knowing current Konami they might make a SH with a playable Pyramid Head.
