Konami teases reveals for games it says are ‘quietly underway’

Konami has said it’s planning to reveal even more new games, building on its recently disclosed plans to revive classic franchises.

As part of its New Year greeting (published on Famitsu), the company mentioned “new games for well-known series”, likely referencing the roster of Silent Hill games and Castlevania collaboration announced last year.

However, it said it also had new announcements to make regarding projects “deeply and quietly underway” behind the scenes.

“Happy New Year to all game fans,” Konami’s greeting reads. “Thank you very much for enjoying many of Konami’s games last year.

“This year is the Year of the Rabbit, and we are planning new games for well-known series, with the aim of making even greater strides.

“In addition, new projects that we have yet to announce to you are also deeply and quietly underway. Please look forward to Konami’s future announcements.”

VGC first reported in 2021 that Konami was looking to revive many of its major franchises, including Silent Hill (which was eventually announced last year), Castlevania and Metal Gear.

Sources claimed that one title in development at Singapore-based support studio Virtuous was a new version of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. A recruitment video posted by the company later appeared to hint at the project.

A Silent Hill 2 remake was one of several projects announced by Konami in October, alongside Silent Hill Townfall by Observation developer No Code, and another new game called Silent Hill F.

Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania, a crossover DLC featuring the legendary Konami franchise, was announced last month.
