    Because indie studios are where all the fresh talent went. Japan has begun realizing this.

      Why is Japan courting indie devs to make games for them?

      Publishers gobbling up indies will only worsen things since they'll pozz it up with p2w, pay for "convenience", microtransactions, and GaaS. The best games will still come from the indie scene and that wont change until there are laws against the unrelenting psychological assault and manipulation that goes into microtransactions. It's still crazy how it's not considered racketeering when devs can literally program problems and sell the solution.

    Any dev with experience knows to stay the fuck away from konami without a hefty paycheck, they're hoping less experienced indie devs will be gullible enough instead.

    Because Konami doesn't develop in-house titles anymore, and everything they'll do from here on will be outsourced garbage.

    Some gay furries already made a gay furry VN Silent Hill called Echo. Maybe they should pitch to Konami so a proper game gets made.

    It's konami. They will chose the cheaper options.

    The best "Silent Hill" game in recent memory was a free indie game
    This random fucker made a better SH game than any Western dev after 4.

    They just don't get it.

    Nobody wants Silent Hill made by crappy western devs.

    That's why nobody bought Silent Shit anymore after 3 and 4. Team Silent is what made these games, not Konami or their outsourced kusoge western trash studios.

    Without their talent this franchise is a bust and a dead relic. It'd be like FromSoftware making Souls games after Miyazaki, Tanimura and Yuka Kitamura had left the company. The magic is gone, the soul is gone. Stop trying to bring shit back from the past, you can't bring Queen back and you can't bring these old franchises back without the talent and the spark that made it great.

    >we want to make money by selling silent hill games but we don't want to bother having to make them ourselves, please do it for us

    I'm a layman and don't know anything about how the industry works, but taking into account the retarded japanese boomers and konami firing iga and kojimbo, they probably fired the people that actually make the fucking games to work on their stupid pachinko machines so now they're forced to outsource
    also, the OG devs are probably getting old and are retired, anyway, so maybe they're looking for new blood
