We may want to pump the breaks on rumours of Sony and Konami teaming up for a new Silent Hill game, as key departures at Sony’s SCE Japan studio have taken place this week. These departures include Keiichiro Toyama, creator and director of the original Silent Hill.
After more than two decades at PlayStation’s SCE Japan Studio, Silent Hill creator, Keiichiro Toyama is departing to form a new development company. This new studio also has veteran talent from other PlayStation franchises, like The Last Guardian and Gravity Rush.
This new studio is called Bokeh Game Studio and you can see it being introduced in the video above.
Toyama is joined by The Last Guardian’s Kazunobu Sato and Gravity Rush designer, Junya Okura. The small team will begin recruiting as it starts to plan its first game project.
KitGuru Says: It’s always interesting to see new studios appear, particularly when they are led by well-known industry veterans. Hopefully we’ll see something good coming out of Bokeh Game Studio in the next few years.
