New reports have come to light and we’re happy to say that Konami is more than likely developing not one but two new Silent Hill games. This word comes via Aesthetic Gamer on Twitter who says that Konami has reached out to developers over the past couple of years and requested different pitch ideas for new Silent hill games. Reportedly, one of these games will be a “soft-reboot” of the franchise itself while the other would be an episode-based game similar to that of Until Dawn.
Konami about two years ago reached out to various developers to pitch ideas for two Silent Hill games, one a soft-reboot of the franchise, the other an episodic TellTale/Until Dawn-style game to go alongside the reboot. I don’t know anything more than that though, but I sure do hope Konami’s given it the appropriate budget and found the right developer to make those games succeed.
To add even more speculation to the matter, Aesthetic Gamer suggests that one or both of those titles will be revealed sometime this year, being careful to note that he doesn’t know much about the inner workings of Konami or that there are any real plans in place. So, it’s just hearsay at this point, but good news nonetheless. And, it’s not the only report of such a thing. Horror site Rely on Horror quotes its own independent source, saying that “a Silent Hill project is in development.”
Add in a few reports here and that that Kokim’s working on a new horror game and that Masahiro, Silent Hill 2’s art director is working on a new horror project and things start to fall into place even more. Plus, Konami has been quietly bugging the trademark office with the refiling of lapsed Silent Hill trademarks as well, so there’s a good chance that something is in the works.
