The Medium developers, who recently announced a partnership with Konami, are working on two brand new projects, both of which are bigger than their most recent psychological horror title.
Bloober Team, the studio that specialises in psychological horror games such as The Medium are quite busy with their new projects. The team is currently working hard on two unannounced games and judging by their latest comments, both of these will be bigger in scope than already mentioned The Medium.
You may recall that recently, there Bloober Team projects were discovered via the EU funding website. The projects that fans found included H2O (Layers of Fear 2), Black (a first-person game set in a medieval Europe attacked by aliens), and Dum Spiro (a horror game set in a World War 2 Jewish-Polish ghetto).
Shortly after discovering these, fans started to speculate that the Dum Spiro project could be the rumoured Silent Hill game, which Bloober Team are rumoured to be working on now that the partnership with Konami has been agreed.
However, Bloober Team have rubbished these rumours, stating that neither of these games is currently in active development.
"After numerous iterations of Dum Spiro, we’ve concluded we can’t at the moment deliver it in a form that is appropriately sensitive to the topic and commercially viable at the same time. In short, Dum Spiro is no longer in active development at the moment."
"Similarly, the initial idea for Black has also been shelved, and while we’re still developing a game under this codename, it’s now a much different project than what you could read on the web in the past few days," Bloober Team spokesperson told IGN.
They also made it clear that they have two projects in the works but neither of them is based on the Silent Hill franchise.
"At Bloober Team we have two active internal projects, one in the production phase and one in the pre-production phase. Both are going to be bigger in scope than The Medium, however, neither of them is based on themes or premises that have been circulating online in the last days."
Whether this is just some PR talk or Bloober Team really don't have anything to do with the rumoured Silent Hill game, well, it remains to be seen. Until then, take every rumour with a grain of salt, until we get an official confirmation from Konami or the devs themselves.
