An all too familiar turn of events over the last few years, developer of the recently released Silent Hill: Downpour, Vatra Games, appears to be on the chopping block as their parent company has placed the developer under “strategic review.”
In a statement to Eurogamer, Vatra’s parent company Kuju stated that “The new management team at Kuju have been conducting a strategic review of all aspects of the business. As part of this process, the on-going business activities of the Vatra studio are currently under review. However, at this stage, no decisions have yet been made.”
Unfortunately this isn’t good news for the company, which is a damn shame considering how good Silent Hill: Downpour actually was in keeping with the feel of a classic Silent Hill title while successfully translating that experience to current-gen consoles.
