Almost a decade to the day since the last Silent Hill game released (as long as you don’t include PT.), Konami is finally ready to reveal what’s next for the franchise. The company will reveal the “latest updates” for the series during a stream starting at 5pm ET on October 19.
The publisher announced the storefront in a tweet that includes a link to a Silent Hill replacement website. Supposedly you’ll be able to watch the stream there.
There seems to be at least one new game in the works. Composer Akira Yamaoka and Masahiro Ito, the art director of the first three games, shared news about the upcoming stream, saying Chronicle of Video Games notes. Both have already hinted that they are working on a new Silent Hill title. Yamaoka also handled the score for Bloober Team’s The environment — according to reports, this studio is working on a remake of Silent Hill 2 after teaming up with Konami last year.
Other Silent Hill projects said it was a work in progress include an episodic, narrative sequence, and a playable teaser in the vein of PT for a new base game. PT was an interactive teaser for Silent Hills, a planned full game from Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro. However, Konami canceled Silent Hills in 2015, and Kojima left the publisher in controversial fashion. Since then, the Silent Hill series has been dormant, except for crossovers such as Pyramid Head, which appeared in Dead by Daylight.
Meanwhile, a third Silent Hill movie may be on the horizon. Christoph Gans, who directed and co-wrote the first film in 2006, said this year that he had completed the script for another film. Hans too hinted this month that Konami is working on several Silent Hill games. It seems likely that we will learn more about them soon. Hopefully Konami will come back PT as well.
