Mysterious Teasing from PS5's Abandoned Developer Blue Box Studio

Blue Box studio made a mysterious twitt about the title of the game they re developping with many twitter users speculating that is Silent Hill

Sonic-and-Crash1070d ago

i dont know if it is Silent Hill or no ....but the visuals in the first teaser are pretty poor ...

GaboonViper1070d ago

Seriously, if this is master Kojima trolling and it really is what i think, a Silent Hill reboot, i will be over the moon, if on the other hand it is just some indie game with no relation to Kojima or Silent Hill then a massive F**K YOU, i'm holding out hope though it really is Silent Hill and will be announced soon.

I wouldn't call it "master" trolling. An unknown or fake dev studio from the Netherlands? That's exactly what he did for MGS V. Which is why I doubt Kojima is involved, I don't see him pulling the exact same stunt twice.

I'm also not sure about this being Silent Hill. It seems like that's what they're implying, but I just don't see Konami selling the IP off. We'll see though, stranger things have happened.

dekke1070d ago

well P.T dev was "7780s Studio" but anyways i dont believe its SH :P

They can claim that they didn't intend to mislead, but they're lying. With all the rumors they knew what they were doing.

AnotherProGamer1069d ago

they wont confirm something that is supposed to be secretive lol

wheatley1068d ago

Moby Dick Studios also claimed they weren't making The Phantom Pain...

I’m glad it’s not Silent Hill

Resident Evil is in first person now, I don’t want this to go the same way

ScootaKuH1069d ago

Yeah but SH technically was going to go first person first. Remember the PT demo?

Capcom saw the reception that received and basically decided to copy it

Yui_Suzumiya1069d ago

Actually the development of RE7 being in first person started before the Silent Hills reveal

-Foxtrot1069d ago

Yeah but at least then you had Resident Evil before it’s change to first person and also they changed the name to Silent Hills (plural) which gave off the impression it was going to be different anyway

Also it was rumoured it would just be first person for inside houses and the like

Futureshark1069d ago

"Abandoned = (First letter S, Last letter L). "

Not very well concealed tease if it is Silent Hill. I hope it is myself, be great to have a new one, whether Mr Kojima is involved or not.

Interesting

Actual japanese gamers doesn´t seem to bother with all the controversy surrounding a black samurai as protagonist or history accuracy.

Shadows pre orders are pretty strong on US PS Store too.

S2Killinit7h ago(Edited 7h ago)

I still feel their grievance. Their history is filled with Ninja/Shinobi characters, and yet when a game is made about it, the main character had to be of a different race altogether. The Japanese would wonder why the main protagonist couldnt be Japanese, like did we not have sufficient history of our own? Its cultural appropriation for sure, and I would Have been ok with it if we were offered at least one Japanese male shinobi to play as well, not a foreigner and a Kunoichi.

It definitely rubs me the wrong way, but I still want to play it.

TheColbertinator7h ago

I'm sure the Japanese gamers are upset about not being able to play as Japanese people in a Samurai era game. It is not like they have

Total War Shogun
Rise of the Ronin
Way of the Samurai
Yakuza Ishin/Kenzan
Sengoku Basara
Samurai Shodown
Ghost of Tsushima
For Honor
Shadow Tactics
Onimusha
Kessen
Nobunaga's Ambition

Apart from all those games I'm sure they feel very deprived

Im not saying they demand that every game set in their country be played by Japanese. But you can understand why they would be at least slightly disappointed that a game that portrays itself in the context of actual historical events would choose a foreigner to showcase Japanese heritage. A Samurai of all things at that.

If you’re talking point is that they have plenty to represent them already, I would agree, but its not like cultural appropriation is limited to this either.

Eonjay7h ago

Clearly they are fine. If they don't have a grievance, don't try to force one on them. That's beyond disingenuous. This was always about your own grievance and not theirs. What's up with people on the internet deciding how other people should feel?

Cacabunga7h ago(Edited 7h ago)

Only stupid people are caring about what others are supposed to believe and follow and what not.. a game is a game, this kind of controversy is stupid..

It’s a much bigger problem for me that an always online game is on top of the charts..

There isn't one main character, there are two. The only people upset are people who apparently can't see Naoe and only Yasuke.

Edit: What's funny is she's literally shown on this submission as the story image. But, no, only Yasuke.

More like you own grievance. The Japanese made Nioh, where you played as a white guy
