There is little doubt that Konami has gone through a lot in the past few years as fans noted that the publisher has been making terrible choices for its previously successful video game franchises. Still, there are a lot of people who continue to stand by Konami. For instance, Piotr Babieno, the CEO of Bloober Team which is developing the Silent Hill 2 remake, defended the publisher by claiming Konami has made great decisions.

Bloober Team is currently developing the Silent Hill 2 remake which is expected to revive the video game franchise. Although the remake has been met with scepticism, Piotr Babieno believes that Konami has made the right choice with it.


"Those people who are in charge of Konami Gaming right now, of course I can't tell you all the details, but I believe that they do understand how gaming works," Babieno told IGN. "They came from companies which worked on many great projects, and I'm pretty sure that they are making great choices by choosing partners, by choosing projects…"

Babieno added that he understands why the developer has faced hate in the past but was quick to point out that fans should give Konami another chance to prove itself.


"And I do understand that people are a little bit angry at Konami for the stuff which happened in the past, but I would like to say, give them the time, because they do know what they are doing," he said.

Konami got a slew of successful video game franchises with Silent Hill, Metal Gear Solid, and Castlevania. However, things started to go downhill after the publisher cut ties with Hideo Kojima. From there, Konami has struggled to find another hit game but the Silent Hill 2 remake could give the publisher its next big break.

The Silent Hill 2 remake is currently in development and has not yet been given an official release date. The game is set to be released for PlayStation 5 and Windows.
