Interestingly, Masahiro Ito, one of the artists behind the series and the creator of iconic enemy Pyramid Head, retweeted the announcement, which suggests he may be involved in whatever Konami has planned for the franchise.
Last week, Silent Hill movie director Christophe Gans seemingly confirmed that there are multiple Silent Hill games in the pipeline, something that we’ve been hearing for a while now. One of these games is reportedly a Silent Hill 2 Remake, which is being handled by Bloober Team.
In addition, a title called Silent Hill: The Short Message was rated in Korea last month, which may be a teaser of some description for a larger project.
Back in May, VGC reported that Konami’s plans for Silent Hill includes a full-fledged Silent Hill instalment as well as an episodic story-based outing.
