Kojima wants FOX to power other Konami games, Silent Hill included

At the Pax Prime¬†Metal Gear 25th Anniversary panel, Hideo Kojima talked of how Kojima Production’s FOX engine can be used on future Konami project.

“The thing is, once we get the Fox engine moving as we do now. You can make an FPS, you can make an Uncharted, etc. But what I wanted to do is make an open-world game, and that’s what I’m doing now,” Kojima said the panel.

Kojima goes on to mention that other studios within Konami can use the engine for their own titles, Silent Hill included. Kojima expressed interest in a FOX Silent Hill title not too long ago. It sounds to me like Kojima wants the engine to become Konami’s signature development tool. Capcom practices this with their own MT Framework engine.

A powerful, universal engine seems like a neat idea if it’s really all it’s cracked up to be. If reports from the MGS Panel are correct, FOX is going to be stunning. Konami is no doubt investing a lot into Kojima’s projects, so seeing some of that investment make its way into a Silent Hill game would be amazing. Here’s hoping that Konami gives Silent Hill some FOX in the future.

If you want to see what FOX is capable of, keep your eyes peeled on IGN‘s Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes¬†gameplay post.

    Yes please.

    I don’t think the world is ready for a Silent Hill game on that scale of horrifying beauty… Then again, I could be wrong.

  • tigerspaw

    I wish the team that developed MGS games would make a Silent Hill game.

  • eagle

    i wish vatra would come back, they got the atmosphere and basic ideas right they just need scarier enemies and more mind fucks

  • Downpour would be different with the FOX Engine rain effects.

    Really, anything’s better than continuing to use Unreal. I mean, it can look good sometimes, but even just compared to MGS4, it’s a no-brainer. After seeing the Fox Engine in action I can say that a Silent Hill game would have to be able to run well, considering how good it looks. We don’t want another Crysis situation, where the engine is too powerful to run properly.

    The gameplay footage shown from Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeros was jaw dropping. I can only imagine what Silent Hill would look like.

  • Wouldn’t mind at all.

  • Smiley

    I support this.

  • after seeing the extended demo for ground zeroes, i immediately thought of silent hill utilizing it. make it happen konami! i dont want the engine to be limited to mgs. i think silent hill would make a fresh, terrifying presentation with fox
