The Japanese publisher revealed plans to revive its long-dormant horror series last October, when it announced that brand-new games were in the works alongside a Silent Hill 2 remake from developer Bloober Team.
Providing an update on its upcoming projects on Thursday as part of its quarterly earnings results, the company stated that Silent Hill “remakes” were being planned.
It said: “As for ongoing efforts, we are working diligently on Metal Gear Solid Δ: Snake Eater, which faithfully recreates the story, characters, and game design of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, one of the most beloved entries in the Metal Gear series, and updates its graphical style to modern graphics for the current generation, as well as remakes and completely new entries in the Silent Hill series, which gained popularity as a psychological horror game.”
While the statement may have been made in error, it could suggest that more than one remake is in development. VGC has contacted Konami for clarification and we’ll update this story when it responds.
Developer Bloober Team said in March that development of its Silent Hill 2 remake was “close” to being completed. Powered by Unreal Engine 5, it will introduce an over-the-shoulder camera, while the studio is rebuilding the combat system and certain set-pieces.
Other Silent Hill projects in the works include Silent Hill Townfall, which is in development at Scottish studio NoCode and will be published by Annapurna Interactive), and Silent Hill F, a “completely new story set in 1960s Japan featuring a beautiful, yet horrifying world”.
Silent Hill: Ascension, an “interactive streaming series where the entire community shapes the canon of Silent Hill”, launched this week.
