* Double post bump*

Konami is confirmed to be at Tokyo Games Show 2023. Sony will only be sponsoring Indy stuff, but they usually do a stream beforehand.

TGS will take place Sep 21st-24th

Konami being there is nothing new, but maybe there's a chance we get a bit more on Silent Hill F.

We might get something at TGS, but I don't think we'll see anything other than Ascension until it at least has a release date.

Crappy?? What are you talking about!! Silent Hill Ascension is going to be the single greatest thing to happen to Silent Hill. Just imagine the main protagonist running away from a horrific monster only for the audience to decide to go LEFT, RIGHT or HIDE and everyone unanimously votes for ... Boaty McBoatface... .......... Yeh.....

State of Play announced for 2PM Pacific tomorrow focusing on third party games that have already been announced. Seems a reasonable show to announce at least a release window for SH2R.

"Tomorrow’s broadcast will focus on updates to previously announced games coming to PlayStation consoles. From indie and PS VR2 highlights, to major upcoming titles from our third-party partners, our latest show has something for everyone!"

Sounds good for a focus on SH2R.

It does!

Which is probably why it won't be there.

Yeah, lol, but I wouldn't count out Ascension! :P

Apparently it'll be 27 mins. A Nintendo Direct is also scheduled for tomorrow. So there is probably some shared news/announcements happening.

Ascension isn't a game so it's not going to show up at a Playstation showcase.
I'm kinda hoping for SH2 tho.

We'll soon find out. My expectations are mixed, low, but not impossible in that we'll see a SH2 trailer in this SOP. But high in hopes that Sony treats SH2 like Hogwarts in that they consider it high profile enough to have its own dedicated SOP... but only closer to release...

I could see Ascension thrown in as a low cost freebie for PS+, therefore guaranteeing participation. :lol:

Will probably just be 25 minutes of Spider-Man 2 and the just-announced remaster of Tomb Raider 1-3 ;)

It could also be the case that Konami themselves want to control the marketing, via dedicated SH franchise directs. Konami sucks at these though... Have they ever advertized at the Game Awards, or are they still upset at the fact that Geoff Keighley is friends with Kojima?

Well, at least we got to see Vanillaware's Unicorn Overlord today, so I'm happy.

Well this is getting increasingly frustrating. And I've even tried to stay optimistic.

There seems to be indications SH2R will be at TGS: https://gameranx.com/updates/id/475995/ ... uring-tgs/

It would be nice if we get another trailer for SH2 before the year is up but it really is worth reiterating that the gaming industry is a very different place than it was during the series prime. Games take 5 to 8 years to make now, not 1 or 2. Leaks pressured Konami into announcing what they had but it hasn't even been a year since those announcements. I said it back then and I'll say it again, these games were never going to come out in 2023. And you wouldn't want them to anyway, the last thing we need is rushed half-baked products killing the series again.

Bloober seemed to indicate that the game was near complete. Which is believable because it's a remake of a linear game which has very small levels comparatively and they are not straying too far from it. So this is easily a 2-3 year project with all the ground design done. Konami and Sony likely already have a set release timeframe on the calendar which I could guess is early next year. It's just that the industry and Sony today know they can just do a shorter less loaded marketing launch beforehand, and only ratchet it up post release if they've got a certified hit on their hands. Hate to say it, but the days of expos are done and Nintendo Directs are the replacement, and those focus on the more immediate releases. Only other prestige events left for long term teases are the Game Awards.

> Bloober seemed to indicate that the game was near complete<
I was under the impression that was a minsunderstanding based on a translation mishap.

Word on the street (re: a Discord “snitch” server) is that Bloober has been removed from the project and another team has been tasked with completing the game.

Supposing that’s true, development could be stalled, thus the ongoing silence from both Konami and Bloober.
