Update [Thu 20th Oct, 2022 09:30 BST]: Konami revealed various Silent Hill projects during a livestream that took place on Wednesday (October 19th).
This included Bloober Team's long-rumoured remake of Silent Hill 2, which is being developed with assistance from the series art director Masahiro Ito and legendary composer Akira Yamaoka. The project is a timed-PS5 exclusive for 12 months.
Konami also announced two other original projects during this livestream too, including Silent Hill Townfall from Scottish developers No Code (Observation, Stories Untold) and publisher Annapurna Interactive; and Silent Hill F, a project from Taiwan-based studio Neoboards Entertainment (Resident Evil: Revelations). We'll update you as more information becomes available.
Original Story [Mon 17th Oct, 2022 12:30 BST]: A decade removed from the last full Silent Hill game, Konami seems to have confirmed the series is making a return.
Yesterday (October 16th), Konami tweeted that it will announce the future of the series at a transmission event this Wednesday at 10pm in the UK (or 5pm EDT/2pm PDT if you live over in the States). The announcement comes after rumors regarding several Silent Hill games have circulated online for several years, including reports of a Silent Hill 2 remake from The Medium developers Bloober Team.
Now it's hoped that fans will finally get an insight into what's been happening behind the scenes and whether any of these rumours hold any weight.
Fans have taken to spreading the announcement since it was posted at 10 past 10 BST on Sunday night, with the series composer Akira Yamaoka and art director Masahiro Itō also retweeting the news. Whether or not they're involved in any future projects remains to be seen, however.
The last full Silent Hill Game was 2012's Silent Hill: Downpour, developed by Vatra Games for PS3 and Xbox 360. In the intervening years, we got P.T. in 2014, a playable teaser for Guillermo Del Toro and Hideo Kojima's take on the Silent Hill series, but Konami controversially cancelled that project and removed this teaser from the PlayStation store in the years following. If you want to read more about P.T., we recommend checking out our feature on it from Nathan Byrne.
