Veteran composer leaves Konami

Yamaoka waves Silent Hill farewell

Veteran game audio man Akira Yamaoka has confirmed he is leaving Konami after 16 years at the games publisher.

Yamaoka is most famous for his work on the eerie soundtrack to the Silent Hill series.

Indeed the composer has worked on every title in the long running survival-horror series, except a couple of the very early spin-offs.

It is unclear where Yamaoka will head next - but the Silent Hill series won't be the same without him.
