Konami teases that it has multiple projects “quietly underway” which sparked excitement amongst its loyal fan base.

Konami teases multiple projects are underway
While wishing fans a Happy New Year, Konami also teased that new announcements could be made with multiple projects “deeply and quietly underway”.
Furthermore, It was also stated that the company is “planning new games for well-known series, with the aim of making even greater strides.”
Konami continued: “In addition, new projects that we have yet to announce to you are also deeply and quietly underway. Please look forward to Konami’s future announcements.”
Which Konami franchises will return?
Of course, Konami hasn’t outright said which series will be making a return. However, considering that we already know that a Silent Hill 2 remake and more are on the way, fans are hopeful to see the likes of Metal Gear Solid and Castlevania revived.
Back in November 2022, God of War Ragnarok director, Eric Williams said that he would love to develop a new Castlevania game and pleaded with Konami to “make it happen”.
Rumours of MGS remakes are making the rounds
What’s more, rumours have also been circulating that the original Metal Gear Solid or MGS3 could receive a remake. However, there seem to be no whispers of MGS2 receiving the same treatment, sadly.
