After years of waiting, Konami finally unveiled what it has in store for the Silent Hill franchise. Konami has now announced four new Silent Hill games, including a remake of Silent Hill 2, which is a timed PS5 exclusive.
During Konami’s Silent Hill Transmission, the publisher announced four new Silent Hill games are on the way. If you missed the event, here is a quick round-up of all the games announced during the showcase.
Silent Hill 2 remake
Kicking off the showcase was the Silent Hill 2 remake. Developed by Bloober Team, the remake is coming to PC and is also a timed PS5 console exclusive for 12 months, so it likely won’t arrive on Xbox for a while yet. No release date was announced.
Silent Hill: Townfall
Next up was Silent Hill: Townfall, which is in development at Scottish studio No Code and will be published by Annapurna Interactive. Unfortunately, not much was said about this mysterious new game — platforms and a release date were also not revealed. No Code says we can expect more on Silent Hill: Townfall in the new year.
Silent Hill: Acension
Silent Hill: Ascension is dubbed as an “interactive streaming series where the entire community shapes the canon of Silent Hill.” Again, not much was revealed about this one, but it is expected to launch in 2023. Platforms were not announced.
Silent Hill f
The final game announcement of the showcase was Silent Hill f, which Konami says is a “completely new story set in 1960’s Japan featuring a beautiful, yet horrifying world.” It’s being written by “Ryūkishi07, famed for Japanese visual novels dealing with murder mysteries, psychological and supernatural horror.” No release date or platforms were announced.
As for non-game projects, Konami revealed that a new Silent Hill film is in the works. Return to Silent Hill is being directed by 2006 Silent Hill director Christophe Gans, and the project is still in the early stages.
