Wow a petition online that will definitely change their mind. People seem to think just because you get a bunch of people to sign something saying “We want this now please.” That it is going to happen. Please stop, and be realistic for a moment. Unfortunately this petition will go nowhere because not only does Konami own the Silent Hills IP. It was developed under Konami, therefore they could claim (and rightfully so) that anything remotely resembling the game was developed at Konami and therefore it belongs to them.
50K people who didn’t stop to think for two seconds and realize that their petition is largely useless. I don’t think I have ever seen a petition like this work regardless of the number of signatures. I understand the sentiment, but these always end up being a waste of time and people need to realize this. Having said that the person who created the petition and anyone who signed it has a lot to learn about how the real world works. Let it die. If all the developers and the people behind it are gone, don’t force it to be made.
