Konami is reportedly reviving the Silent Hill series with not one but two new instalments.
According to Twitterer Aesthetic Gamer – who has accurately shared Capcom leaks in the past – publisher Konami “reached out” to developers a couple of years ago, inviting pitch ideas to bring the series to life once more. One game is thought to be a “soft-reboot” of the franchise, whilst the other is rumoured to be an episodic adventure similar to Until Dawn.
“In other news while I’m dropping this stuff, and I think I can talk about this, I’ll mention there is a couple new Silent Hill games in the works,” Aesthetic Gamer stated. “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.
