At Konami’s E3 press conference they announced Silent Hill 5 and it was in the hands of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer developers. The Collective tends to jump between genres making everything from the Game of Life to Mark Ecko’s depressing take on Jet Set Radio, but Silent Hill 5 is not their first foray into horror. They are also developing Harker, a dark vampire hunting game with a protagonist that has a personal vendetta for Dracula.
But, whatever happened to Harker? The Collective announced it two Halloweens ago as a PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 title. Did development halt because it doesn’t have a publisher? Or is the Collective reallocating their resources for Silent Hill 5?
The initial screenshots show some potential. At least Harker doesn't appear to be anything like AQ Interactive's horrible Tom Clancy meets nightwalkers, Vampire Rain.
