A new Silent Hill game is officially on the way according to Konami, as the developer and publisher have announced that a live event will take place which will highlight what we can expect from the series in the future, including a reference sneaky in Silent Hill 2. This follows months of speculation and rumors surrounding the return of one of the best horror games, with the official silence now broken.
It’s unclear exactly what Konami will show of this new Silent Hill game, or if it will actually be multiple games, according to previous rumors. The Konami reveal says the following: “In your restless dreams, do you see this city? The latest updates to the Silent Hill series will be revealed during the Silent Hill transmission.
The showcase takes place on Wednesday, October 19 at 10:00 PM BST / 2:00 PM PDT / 5:00 PM EST, we don’t know exactly how long it will last, if there will be new Silent Hill gameplay, release dates, release or just some announcements.
Several rumors and listings from this year have pointed to some Silent Hill game news, with the likes of Silent Hill director Christoph Gans repeatedly talking about how Konami plans to bring the franchise back. According to Gans, this Silent Hill reboot will feature a full relaunch of the franchise “in video game terms”, and this came as Konami was “boosted by the success of Resident Evil 2 and 3 reboots” at Capcom. .
On top of all that, a new Silent Hill game was also accidentally teased (or revealed, depending on how you look at it) recently. A Korean rating for a new game, called Silent Hill: The Short Message, appeared online and it wasn’t entirely clear at the time what it was about. Chances are we’ll find out more about this Silent Hill game during Konami’s transmission this week.
This Silent Hill game could very well be what comes from the Bloober Team and Konami partnership that was announced last year. Although there was never an official mention of Silent Hill in this context, the release of Bloober Team or the modern horror games Layers of Fear, Blair Witch and The Medium all suggest that horror is on the way. cards in the partnership, leading many to believe a new Silent Hill game to be involved.
These Bloober Team Silent Hill rumors have been denied by the developer (while not being denied at the same time, that was weird), but it seems increasingly likely that it’s something the team is on. work.
That’s (mostly) all about a new Silent Hill game for now, we’ll just have to wait for Konami’s transmission for more, but chances are it’s several games, and maybe more.
