Possible Vatra Closure & The Future of Silent Hill

I feel the same way about the possible closure of Vatra as I do about the possible closure of any other producer of sub-standard products that work poorly.

Here’s an idea.

Give the next Silent Hill game to someone with a proven track record, whose optimised code works perfectly, has produced games that stretch what hardware they’re produced on. Remember how poorly Homecoming and Downpour ran? Imagine a Silent Hill for the HD consoles that pushes the limits of the hardware the way Silent Hill used to. The company that has the highest Silent Hill aggregated ratings both from users and critics of the post Silent Hill 4: The Room era. The company that made the games that prove they understand both how traditional Silent Hill works and also how to reimagine it in interesting ways. How much promise would a third game hold?

Maybe it’s time we gave it back to Climax Studios?
