Waiting for new Silent Hill and Metal Gear

Important Konami sagas such as Metal Gear Solid or Silent Hill have not yet received new deliveries, despite the fact that many users are waiting for the return of these intellectual properties.
The Medium is the most recent title from Bloober Team, a title that plays with two realities to create an adventure focused almost exclusively on exploration. It has the music of Akira Yamaoka, the composer of the series.
