Rumor: Sony wants to Acquire Castlevania, Metal Gear Solid & More from Konami

Metal Gear Solid

A couple of days ago, Sony Interactive Entertainment was reported to be working on two Silent Hill games; one totally a new IP being developed by SIE Japan, and the other was a resurrection of the canceled Silent Hills that was under the direction of Hideo Kojima with Norman Reedus as the protagonist.

But it seems that Silent Hill is not the only IP of Konami that the Japanese company wants to recover, since a new rumor suggests that Castlevania and Metal Gear have their eyes set too.


In January of this year, a former Konami employee revealed through 4chan that Sony was looking to buy these three franchises, however, due to the low credibility of the rumor, and the platform where it was shared, it was not given more importance.

Now, a couple of months later, this rumor appears to have gained a bit more traction since the Rely on Horror website and now Jack of all Controllers website has corroborated the information with their close sources.

As mentioned above, the Silent Hill saga would revive with two new games. Metal Gear would again be under the direction of Kojima, but exactly what he might have planned with the saga is unknown. And Castlevania would be a total reboot of the franchise, with a title that would combine elements of Bloodborne and Lords of Shadow.

As with all rumors, this information should be taken with a pinch of salt. However, the fact that the information has been corroborated by three different sources certainly gives the rumor some credibility.
