Default Rumour: Sony Looking to Acquire Metal Gear Solid, Castlevania, Silent Hill from Konam

Enthusiast forums and social media are ablaze with speculation that Sony is looking to acquire the Metal Gear Solid, Silent Hill, and Castlevania brands from Konami in an epic IP raid. The rumour is piggybacking off recent speculation that Sony is developing and funding various new Silent Hill titles, although those reports much more realistically claimed that the Japanese giant was merely licensing the rights to the survival horror series.

The source is a 4chan post, so it’s already on uncertain ground, although website Jack of All Controllers claims to have had the story verified by its own unknown “sources” – make of that what you will. There’s quite a lot of wishful thinking going on with this rumour, with Castlevania purportedly receiving a Bloodborne-esque reboot at Sony’s Japan Studio. That one sounds a little too good to be true, doesn’t it?

Even if it's just a licensing deal, I would absolutely kill for anyone to start making new games of these franchises.

Konami should license these IP out especially if they have 0 interest in continuing the franchises

I just wish Konami would release physical versions of the
Castlevania and Contra collections.

I doubt Sony will acquire them. They had the opportunity to acquire their actual mascot (not the Sony cat, you know who I'm talking about...) and they didn't do anything.
