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...
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 It should be noted, however, that the list of games in this report could be outdated or simply cancelled projects.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.

Platform-exclusive games could become big business in 2021 and beyond.
There’s nothing like a few console exclusives to keep the war between gamers raging, but up until now, there haven’t been than many console-exclusive games, with Microsoft, Nintendo, and Sony only holding a handful in the grand scheme of things. A new report, however, claims that Microsoft, Amazon, Google, and even Sony are all actively seeking studio acquisitions, and it could mean that the gaming industry as we know it is about to go through a drastic change.
News of the aforementioned companies looking to snatch up studios left and right comes from Brad Sams, a journalist that has a pretty good track record of reporting Microsoft news long before official word actually drops. In the video we’ve embedded below, he spills the beans about this industry-changing news:
“I’ve been hearing a lot of conversations behind closed...
Elder Scrolls 5 is coming up on 10 years old, and it’s only fair to wonder when The Elder Scrolls 6 is finally going to launch. The good news is that Elder Scrolls VI is coming, but the bad news is that it’s still quite a ways off with at least one other AAA title being launched before it. There are rumors about Elder Scrolls 6 flying around everywhere and with very little being confirmed by Bethesda since the Elder Scrolls 6 Teaser Trailer from E3 2018, there’s a lot we still don’t know. With all the questions and speculations, we’ve compiled a guide to get you up to date with everything we know about Elder Scrolls 6 so far.

Ghost of Tsushima is still a newborn baby as far as time on the market goes, and now a new job listing from studio Sucker Punch could be hinting that a sequel could be in the works.
According to the aforementioned job posting, Sucker Punch is looking for a new narrative writer to join its team. This person would “help create engaging narrative content for our upcoming projects.” The listing calls for the right applicant to have knowledge of writing character-driven stories withing a “AAA open world game.” If that doesn’t sell it for you yet, one of the job requirements is to have “a desire to write stories set in feudal Japan” along with an added plus of “having a knowledge of feudal Japanese history.”
Ghost of Tsushima is set in late-13th century feudal Japan, so if Sucker Punch is looking for someone with knowledge...
Fresh on the heels of news that The Outer Worlds is launching on Steam on October 23, new word has surfaced that game studio Obsidian is working on a new game that could be a sequel or a spin-off. Word comes from senior video games industry analyst, Daniel Ahmad of Niko Partners via Twitter.
Last I heard a new entry in the franchise is being explored, currently in pre-production. Could change into something else ofc, but this is the current status. https://t.co/OGvfHjycNu— Daniel Ahmad (@ZhugeEX) October 11, 2020
With that in mind, we do know that The Outer Worlds will make the transition to the PS5 and Xbox Series X, with Obsidian working hard to make it happen sooner than later. However, Obsidian is now an Xbox Games studio, and that’s where problems with the next game in the series might lie.
With Obsidian being an...
Now that Microsoft has announced pricing for the Xbox Series X and digital-only Xbox Series S, the world is waiting for Sony’s answer. From the look of things, you might want to prepare for disappointment as a new leak paints the Sony PS5 as the more expensive console, and considerably so at that. According to the leaked image posted on Twitter (shown below) the PS5 will be priced at €499.90, which comes to $594 or £460 at current exchange rates. The PS5 digital edition is listed at €399.90, which converts to $475 or £369.

If these prices are, in fact, accurate, that means you’ll have to pony up an extra $100 for the more powerful PS5 or $176 of the digital-only PS5 – something that would give the Series X...
Despite the fact that Nintendo believes the Switch has plenty of life left in it and isn’t worried one bit about the Xbox Series X or PS5, rumors have been swirling about a new Switch console being in the works. The first rumor involved the potential for a dual-screen switch, which would have been quite awkward, while the most recent rumor suggested that a new Switch with “upgraded interactivity” was in development. That rumor suggest that a Switch Pro of sorts, with 4K capability, was in development, and now a new report from Bloomberg seems to be backing that up in a major way.
That report says that Nintendo has asked its assembly partners to “increase production” to 30 million units with the sole purpose of meeting extreme demand. That’s not surprising, honestly, since the Switch was hard to come by in the early days...
Once again, the official Rockstar Support account on Twitter is answering questions about Grand Theft Auto 6. Well, it’s not exactly answering them, but it’s at least acknowledging them – directing fans of the yet-to-be-confirmed game to Rockstar Newswire for official updates. Of course, these replies, which were scattered across the last week, also confirmed that Rockstar has “not released any information” about GTA 6.
There is no news on that topic yet. Please stay tuned to the Rockstar Newswire for official updates: https://t.co/i1zkZw0nsH *KG— Rockstar Support (@RockstarSupport) September 7, 2020
Following Rockstar’s renewing of both GTA 6 and Vice City Online domain names, it’s not surprising that Rockstar Supports new attentiveness to GTA 6 would spark new rumors. The same thing happened when Rockstar introduced a new logo and when GTAVI.com was updated to no-longer point to the official GTA 5 website. Just a...
Following tons of drama surrounding Cyberpunk 2077 and the possibility of microtransactions, CD Projekt Red has stepped up to the plate to clarify that they won’t be a part of Cyberpunk 2077. To our understanding, there won’t be microtransactions of any kind in Cyberpunk 2077 and, while the stand-alone multiplayer game that is set to launch sometime in 2022 will have microtransactions, they won’t be overly pushy or required to enjoy the game in any way.
In a recent financial earnings call, CD Projekt boss, Adam Kicinski was very clear about how the company was going to go about microtransactions, stating that the company wants to encourage players to spend money without forcing needless in-game purchases.
“Well, we are never aggressive towards our fans. We treat them fair and we're friendly. So of course not, we won't be aggressive. But you can expect great things...
