Konami has revealed in a series of job listings that it is staffing up for ‘large-scale’ projects within the Silent Hill franchise.
The publisher is calling for “game creators” that are interesting in joining the company to take on various roles including producers, artists, banners, engineers, and project managers. Here’s a google translation of the post:
The ‘Silent Production Team’ is recruiting artists, planners, engineers, and project manager. Please join us in this work, which has many fans overseas! A chance to be involved in game production in a cutting-edge development environment.
We already know that Konami is working on a revival of the Silent Hill franchise with various projects in the works, including Silent Hill 2 Remake, Silent Hill Townfall, and Silent Hill F. There’s also the as-yet unannounced Silent Hill The Short Message, which has been rated numerous times now and most recently popped up on the Australian Classification Board.
None of the above games have a release date yet, although Bloober Team’s Silent Hill 2 Remake was recently put up for preorder on various retailers, indicating it may be close to release. Best Buy also listed that the game would feature a Pyramid Head origin story, although Konami later stated that the retailer had the ‘incorrect info‘ on this feature.
