“Silent Hill: The Short Message” was rated by the committee on Monday, with no platforms specified.
The rating is possibly related to one of multiple Silent Hill projects which are reportedly in development at various studios.
VGC first reported last February that Konami was planning to revive the long-dormant horror game series.
According to multiple reports, a Silent Hill 2 remake is understood to be one of the games in active development. It’s also claimed that an episodic series of Silent Hill “short stories” are also in development.
The images could also be related to yet another Silent Hill game said to be in development, which leaked online earlier this year via multiple concept images which were quickly removed from social media via a copyright claim.
One leaked image for that project, posted online today, appears to show a messaging feature, which could be related to ‘The Short Message’ rating.
It could also be related to a feature that was reportedly planned for Hideo Kojima‘s canned Silent Hills, where the game would send players real-life text messages.
One studio constantly linked to the Silent Hill franchise is The Medium studio Bloober Team. Last year the Polish developer announced a “strategic co-operation agreement” with Konami, months after Bloober’s CEO claimed it was working on an existing horror IP from “a very famous gaming publisher”.
