Silent Hill creator Keiichiro Toyama is working on a brand new IP at his Bokeh Game Studio that he founded with Kazunobu Sato, founder, COO, and Producer.
In a new developer spotlight video, we get to hear more about the project and even a glimpse at some behind-the-scenes motion capture footage. We also learn when did Kazunobu Sato plan to leave Sony, and turns out it was right after Shawn Layden left the company.
Here is a summary of the main points discussed regarding the new game. Most of the video deals with the work of Kazunobu Sato but there are some interesting tidbits near the end of the developer spotlight regarding the new horror game from Bokeh Game Studio.
There is no release window for this new project from Bokeh Game Studio, but as seen in the video, the developers plan to start proper work on it soon. It doesn’t sound like it will be out anytime soon.
Keiichiro Toyama and Kazunobu Sato have worked on several notable games in the past including the Siren series, Gravity Rush, and Silent Hill. They have a lot of experience in horror games which should bode well for this new IP as a brand new studio.
