According to a new report from VGC, Konami is overhauling its approach to AAA game development, and part of that plan includes recruiting external studios to develop multiple new Silent Hill games.
News that multiple Silent Hill games are currently in development at various external studios comes as quite a surprise. Konami has typically refrained from collaborating with external studios on projects in the past, and Konami was quick to deny rumors that a Silent Hill reboot was happening following rumors that new Silent Hill games were finally coming way back in early 2020.
All of the hype and desire for a new Silent Hill game, however, could have convinced Konami to do what it takes to relaunch the famed horror series. There have been more rumors about Silent Hill’s reboot than we can count, including the possibility for it returning at the launch of the...
As confirmed by DICE, Battlefield 2042 will not support keyboard and mouse setups on console when it launches this fall. This news comes via a recent blog post that covered a “commitment to positive play” and its revised and expansive community charter. As far as DICE is concerned, console KBM is listed under the studio’s focus on “fair play,” because of potential effects on cross-play and console lobbies, the feature has been set aside – at least for now.
“We can confirm that we won’t be supporting this on consoles at the launch of Battlefield 2042, but we are still investigating the various options about making that available, and how it may impact cross-play. If that ever changes, you’ll hear it from us first.”
This news comes following confirmation that Battlefield 2032 cross-play is already segregated between console generations. In short, players on PS4 and Xbox...
Nintendo and PlatinumGames have finally announced a solid release window for Bayonetta 3, marking 2022 as the year of arrival. This news comes four years after the game was officially announced back in 2017, but the game has remained in development, and is now under the direction of Yusuke Miyata – a long-time co-worker of Bayonetta 3’s Executive Director Hideki Kamiya. He will, however, still be in charge of the world and story, so expect a lot of new mixed in with classic Bayonetta.
Outside of this, the studio has also launched a new gameplay trailer to give us a look into what we can expect.
Here’s a quick breakdown of the game:
Bayonetta, the enchanting witch who’s dressed to kill with her hand-and-foot guns, dominates angel and demon alike with action that is, to put it simply, beautiful.
Mysterious life forms appearing to be neither angel nor...
A recent leak from Geforce Now’s database has pointed a some new first- and third-party games that could join Microsoft’s PC library. The most important of those games include Gears of War 6, the new Fable, and Halo 5: Guardians – the only released Halo not included in The Master Chief Collection.
Other games include:
Chrono Cross RemasterGod of WarResident Evil Remake
With a new report from Windows Central, we can see how some of these leaks corroborate with reporter Jez Corden’s earlier reports. It should be noted, however, that the list of games in this report could be outdated or simply cancelled projects. Some of Microsoft’s listings include games that are still using codenames, but it’s those games that hel[ lend some credibility to the entire report.

Gas Station Simulator puts you at the head of a run-down gas station on Route 66 with the simple goal of making it successful or, perhaps, the best gas station there ever was. Your new station is located in the middle of nowhere and needs a lot of love. You have to paint, renovate, and even furnish. On top of these, to breathe new life into this old joint, you’ll have to tend customers, stock snacks, maintain inventory, and hire new workers, all while staying within a budget.
This isn’t a short-term game, either. It was designed specifically by developer Drago Entertainment to keep you busy for a long period of time. You’ll see your efforts improve something over time, while the mechanics may come off as tedious and grindy to those who aren’t exactly into the whole extreme simulator niche. Interestingly enough, Gas Station...
