The Bloober Team has been around for a while now, and with people like Layers of Fear, Observer, a The Medium under its belt, the Polish studio has certainly established itself as a known quantity in the industry, especially where horror games are concerned. However, the developer has ambitious plans for aggressive future growth – as evidenced by the fact that it has partnered with Konami to work on the Silent Hill 2 remake, which is close to wrapping up development.
In fact, Bloober Team expects significant growth in the sales of its games in the future as well. Recently spoke to a Polish shop A bankerBloober Team CEO Piotr Babieno said the studio expects 10 million copies sold to be a realistic target for its future games.
“You can assume that 10 million copies sold is an achievement that will be real for us soon,” he said.
The studio hopes to become the leading horror game developer in the industry, a target it hopes to achieve by 2027.
:To be the best horror house we have to focus on more publishing activity and have more projects than one game every year and a half, two years,” said Babieno. “That is why the second pillar of Bloober’s strategy is based on cooperation with strategic partners.
“We want our titles to not only be milestones for the genre in the future, but also for the industry as a whole. We’ve said many times that our goal is to be where Naughty Dog or Ninja Theory are.”
The Bloober Team has a number of projects in the works at the moment. In addition to the above Silent Hill 2 remake, the developer is currently also working on Layers of Fear, due out in June, while he’s also working on an unannounced survival horror title with Private Division. The studio has also collaborated with Rogue Games and Draw Dance for additional projects.
Recently, Babieno also said that Bloober Team plans to remain independent for the foreseeable future – read more about that here.
