Multiple Silent Hill Remakes and New Entries in the Works, Says Konami
In addition to the previously announced entries for the series, Konami is reportedly developing multiple remakes of the popular game franchise Silent Hill.
Konami provided an update on its ongoing projects as part of its quarterly earnings results. According to VGC, the Japanese publisher hinted at the possibility of having more than one Silent Hill remake in progress.
“As for ongoing efforts,” Konami stated, “we are diligently working on Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater, which faithfully recreates the story, characters, and game design of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, a beloved entry in the Metal Gear series. We are also working on remakes and entirely new entries in the Silent Hill series, known for its popularity as a psychological horror game.”
This statement suggests that alongside the previously announced remake of 2001’s Silent Hill 2, another game is also under development. Bloober Team is currently working on the Silent Hill 2 remake.
It remains uncertain whether the mention of “remakes” is merely a spelling error or a hint at an unannounced project. We will need confirmation from Konami to be sure.
Aside from Silent Hill 2, Konami also revealed two new games in the series. “Silent Hill Townfall,” developed by Scottish studio NoCode and published by Annapurna Interactive, and “Silent Hill F,” featuring a completely new story set in 1960s Japan with a beautiful yet horrifying world.
Recently, Behaviour Interactive released “Silent Hill: Ascension,” an interactive streaming series that allows players to shape the Silent Hill canon. However, the game has already faced criticism for its microtransactions, with players labeling it as “complete garbage.”
