Konami to Reportedly Revive Metal Gear, Silent Hill, and Castlevania

After a long period of producing little of consequence, Konami is reportedly working to revive some of its biggest franchise like Metal Gear, Silent Hill, and Castlevania

Just over six years after Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain released, we might be finally getting more games from Konami in the Metal Gear, Castlevania, and Silent Hill franchises. As reported by VGC, we're apparently set to get some new games in franchises we all like after a consolidation of their gaming divisions to better react to the market. That was just under a year after Konami officially denied Silent Hill rumors, so I guess it's time to get our yearly Silent Hill rumor in, eh?

What's apparently coming from Konami?

Apparently the first game we'll be receiving is a new Castlevania game that's a reimagining of the series. It's currently being developed internally by Konami in Japan, with support from other local studios outside the fold.

There is also reportedly a Metal Gear Solid 3 remake coming, and it's apparently being developed by Virtuous, who recently developed the Dark Souls Remastered port for the Nintendo Switch, along with other Switch ports such as The Outer Worlds and the BioShock Collection. They've also contributed "art and content" to games such as Battlefield 1, Uncharted 4, and Horizon Zero Dawn

There's also remasters of the original Metal Gear Solid games supposedly in the works that are coming ahead of the Metal Gear Solid 3 remake. 

Last but not least is Silent Hill, there's multiple titles in the franchise supposedly being developed by "various external development studios", with one outsourced to a Japanese developer that we'll probably all recognize. 

As for when they'll be revealed, we'll hopefully see some announcements next year. There's a lot people hoping for new games in these franchises. As long as the supposed games aren't anything like eFootball 2022, we'll be fine. Right? Right?! I guess we'll have to see, so stay tuned to TechRaptor for all the latest Konami news.
