Of course, when the Polish studio Bloober Team, which specializes in game horror, recently announced a collaboration with Konami, there was, of course, a lot of speculation immediately about one long-unused horror brand. Of course, these are not surprising. When you put Konami and horror in one equation, you simply won’t have many other options that could be substituted for the unknown than the legendary Silent Hill.
Another field under the fire was added by a recent leak, which mistakenly displayed three unknown projects in the Bloober Team portfolio under their working names. H20, Black and Dum Spiro, as well as short descriptions of the content: Black was supposed to be a first-person story action survival and Dum Spiro a stealth performer from a Nazi camp. H20 turned out to be the cover name for Layers of Fear 2, but one of the remaining two must definitely be Silent Hill!
But it is said not to be. In a statement for IGN says Tomasz Gawlikowski, head of marketing for the Bloober Team. “We have developed two projects with the working names Dum Spiro and Black. But after many versions of Dum Spira, we came to the conclusion that we were not able to process the concept in a sensitive enough, but at the same time commercially successful way. In other words, we are no longer working on the project. We also postponed the original idea for Black, and although we are currently really creating a game with this cover name, it is a completely different project than the one you read about because of the leak, “he said.
“In the Bloober Team, we currently have two internal projects, one in the production phase and one in the pre-production phase. Both will be bigger than The Medium, and neither is consistent with the recent Internet speculation. ”
Note, however, that Gawlikowski anxiously focused his statement exclusively on denying those specific leaks and their connection to Silent Hill. He did not say that the studio did not work on the brand at all, so it is also quite possible that, true to its corporate position, it is simply skillfully fogging up.
Other clues would still suggest this. Of course internal Bloober’s project will not be Silent Hill, but the collaboration with Konami is a fact and Gawlikowski can hardly convince anyone that they will produce Nightmare Creatures 3 for the Japanese giant (although I personally wouldn’t mind.)
And let’s not forget the strong hint from February this year, when composer Akira Jamaoka, best known for his work on Silent Hillech, confirmed in an interview that he was working on a new project and said it would be “the one you probably hope will be”.
In addition, Jamaoka has collaborated with the Bloober Team in the past, and the fact that he let his mouth go more than he should have is evidenced by the fact that the conversation immediately disappeared into the unknown. At the request of … mysterious entities, because the request to remove the video was again immediately denied by Konami. Normal.
