Konami suggests more Silent Hill remakes are in the works

Ahead of the release of Bloober Team's upcoming Silent Hill 2 remake, publisher Konami has hinted that more Silent Hill remakes may be on the way.

The details:

  • The Japanese publisher provided an update on the current status of its projects such as Metal Gear Solid Δ: Snake Eater and Bloober Team's Silent Hill 2 remake in its recent earnings report, stating that there are "remakes" in the Silent Hill franchise currently planned. "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," the statement reads.

  • It's possible the statement was made in error, but given the success of Capcom's Resident Evil remakes in recent years, it wouldn't be surprising if Konami releases more Silent Hill remakes after Silent Hill 2. Aside from the remake, the publisher recently released the interactive series Silent Hill: Ascension, with Silent Hill Townfall and Silent Hill F also in development at NoCode and Neoboards Entertainment, respectively.

  • According to its developer, Silent Hill 2's remake was "close" to completion in March and will feature a completely new control scheme and playstyle compared to the original, instead using an over-the-shoulder perspective similar to Resident Evil. Despite the changes, Bloober Team has stated that it will "faithfully stick" to the story and set pieces from the original game.
