Longtime Epic Games employee Cliff “Cliffy B” Bleszinski surprised the video game industry by leaving the company in 2012, and later he re-emerged to form a new studio, Boss Key Productions. Boss Key’s first game is a new free-to-play sci-fi shooter called LawBreakers, but as it turns out, Bleszinski was offered the chance to work on an established, popular franchise.
Speaking to followers on Twitter, Bleszinski revealed that Hideo Kojima once asked him to work on a
Silent Hill game with his Los Angeles studio. Bleszinksi rejected the offer for a number of reasons, including his dislike of LA, his desire to work on new IP, and a fear that he wouldn’t be able to do Silent Hill justice. It’s unclear if the project he’s talking about here is the now-cancelled Silent Hills from Kojima and Guillermo del Toro or if it would have been separate.
