Konami is Reportedly Open to Outsourcing ‘Metal Gear’ and ‘Castlevania’ IP to Third Party Developers

So, it seems Konami’s big three aren’t as dead and buried as feared. Silent Hill, Metal Gear, and Castlevania could all live again (and no, I don’t mean in Pachinko form).

Yesterday, during the latest tidbits surrounding a potential Silent Hill project from Bloober Team, it became clear Konami has become more receptive to handing off its IP to outside sources, and over at VGC, multiple additional sources have added to that story to give more details on just why that is and what the company plans to do.

It seems that Konami had previously been averse to outsourcing its IP, with a pitch by Supermassive Games (Until Dawn, The Dark Pictures) for a Silent Hill game (that became The Dark Pictures) among those rejected. That was until in-house projects such as Metal Gear: Survive and Contra: Hard Corps performed poorly, causing Konami to reevaluate its stance.

That seems to have led to the two reported Silent Hill projects on the horizon, with Metal Gear and Castlevania on the table for other studios to pitch for. Any potential project involving those would apparently be quite a ways off, so we’ll be in for more years of anguished waiting

Still, it’s a nice change to hear positive things about Konami’s gaming aspirations rather than talk of canceled projects, and pachinko game jokes. Let’s hope we finally see it start to become reality with a Silent Hill game reveal sooner rather than later.

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
