Concept art from the Silent Scope reboot Day 1 Studios was working on, before Konami backed out of the deal, has surfaced. The revamp of the franchise was to be the first in the series since 2002′s Silent Scope 3 for PS2, and was being designed as a stealth-based, third person shooter with machine guns. It was to be released on PS3 and Xbox 360, and while there’s still no word on why the deal went south, you can console yourself by having a look at the concept art over on Siliconera.

Day 1 Studios has had to lay-off 95% if its staff working on the Silent Scope reboot after the game’s publisher, Konami backed out of the deal. According to a Gamespot report, the Chicago-based studio was working on a revamp of the franchise for Konami, and it was to be the first entry in the series since 2002′s Silent Scope 3 for PS2. There’s no word just yet on why the deal between the two firm’s went south, but at present, Day 1 has another project in the works with a much smaller team fronting it. Considering it’s Saturday, there hasn’t been any official announcement on the matter, so it’s plausible more information will be released on Monday. Day1′s latest release was the shooter F.E.A.R. 3 for Warner. Thanks, Shack.

There’s a video after the break of someone from IGN playing the iPhone version of Silent Scope.
If you expected it to be any different from what it actually is, we’d say you were mentally deficient. But that’s just us.
Take a look.

Some screens after the break of the iPhone version of Silent Scope, announced yesterday.
Unless memory’s failing, it looks exactly like the 1999 arcade game.
We may buy an iPhone and sign up to a crippling contract just to play this on the odd occasion we leave the house.

Fucking hell. You can’t keep a really, really, really old shooting franchise down, apparently. Konami confirmed a version of Silent Scope for iPhone today, claiming the on-rails actioner will have “touch-screen capabilities, multiple gameplay modes and difficulty levels”.
A bit like Metal Gear Solid Touch. The new game’s based on the 1999 arcade release.
“With the release of Silent Scope on the iPhone and iPod touch, we’re substantiating our commitment to developing quality content that takes our top franchise titles and turns them into an on-the-go gaming experience,” said Konami Mobile’s Anthony Borquez.
“Silent Scope allows players to conceal their firearms and perfect their sharpshooting skills wherever they go.”
Sounds amazing. No date. Press release after the break.
