Bloober Team and Konami announce strategic partnership

The Medium developer Bloober Team and Konami have signed a strategic cooperation in the joint development of contents and the exchange of know-how, the companies announced.

“It is a historic day for me and the culmination of several years of our work,” said Bloober Team president Piotr Babieno in a press release. “The fact that such a renowned company as Konami has decided to strategically cooperate with the Bloober Team means that we also joined the world leaders in gaming and became an equal partner for the leading players in this market.”

Konami president and representative director Hideki Hayakawa added, “We have been providing unique entertainment content and ways to enjoy it through the use of information technology. In the digital entertainment industry, significant changes in the business environment are expected in the future. We look forward to combining Bloober Team’s and our respective characteristics and strengths to create high-quality contents.”

While further details were not announced, according to VGC sources, one of the projects Bloober Team is working on is Silent Hill-related, but at least one other Silent Hill project has been outsourced to a “prominent developer” in Japan.
