Multiple Silent Hill projects have been detailed

Recently we reported that a new rumour has surfaced claiming that horror studio Bloober Team have been tasked with remaking the classic survival horror game Silent Hill 2. This seems to be but one cog in a much larger plan by Konami for a franchise revival, with multiple new Silent Hill projects said to be in the works.

As mentioned, just days ago a report surfaced claiming that Bloober Team is working on a remake of the classic survival horror game Silent Hill 2 which will feature reworked puzzles, new endings and will be a timed PlayStation exclusive.

This has since been corroborated by VGC, with the report also offering additional information on publisher Konami’s plans. According to VGC, on top of the reworked puzzles and new endings, the Silent Hill 2 remake from Bloober Team will include reworked AI and animations – two things which are not always guaranteed with a remake.

The Silent Hill name is seemingly prepping for a major return however, as according to VGC, not only is the aforementioned Silent Hill 2 remake in development, but so is a mainline sequel. Very little is known about this currently, though VGC did postulate that the studio tasked with this may be Japanese.

The other Silent Hill project said to be in development is reportedly a “smaller, episodic series of short stories” coming from Annapurna Interactive. Of course, nothing is official until confirmed by Konami themselves; even then – as we saw with PT – plans change and things can get canceled. That being said, after so many years without anything Silent Hill related, it is exciting to see that the drought might soon be over.
