As a result of the leak of images for an upcoming Silent Hill game—photos that were deemed authentic enough to trigger a DMCA takedown notice—some further information regarding potential additions to the franchise has begun to surface. On Twitter, an insider by the name of NateTheHate claimed to have heard that Bloober Team is working on a remake of Silent Hill 2. It appears that this will feature redesigned riddles as well as new conclusions, all while being a “timed PlayStation console exclusive.”
This final sentence gives the impression that it might be released for personal computers after the term of exclusivity has ended. On the other hand, it would appear that many Silent Hill projects are now under development, ranging from a new major entry to side “stories.” The recently exposed project might fall into any of these two categories, but it’s much too early to tell at this point. You should take all of this information with a grain of salt because even Nate has not “verified” any of it and is merely providing “what I’ve heard.”
Kojima Productions is rumored to be working on a product that is being funded by Sony, and the Silent Hill project led by Sony may be switching developers, according to the most recent major reports surrounding the series (which may or may not be the same games). Although Bloober Team did sign a strategic cooperation deal the year before, we have not yet seen any fruit from their efforts. As always, be sure to stay tuned for additional information and updates, particularly leading up to this Summer’s version of E3.
