If there was any rumor mill that has been going on for quite some time in the industry, it would be that a new Silent Hill game is in some form of development. Konami has moved away from producing films itself and it made many wonders if the iconic horror franchise would ever see a return. Surprisingly though, there were hints that multiple games might be in some form of development and now the director of the 2006 film adaptation, Christophe Gans, may have just confirmed those rumors.
In an interview with the French website Movie & Game, Gans hinted that there are “several games in development” with “several teams” involved. Now, that alone isn’t the biggest aspect of this confirmation, as he also has pointed out that Bloober Team is working on a remake of Silent Hill 2, which has been rumored for some time now. Just recently, South Korea’s rating boards have hinted at a project titled Silent Hill: The Short Message which many have theorized is the other original entry in the franchise that was teased for some time.
Of course, the question remains how viable is his confirmation, as he confirms he’s not actively involved with any of the projects directly. Well, he mentions that he’s actively in contact with Team Silent and is also actively working on another film adaptation. There’s still no official confirmation on who is working on what game, but perhaps they are waiting for a joint announcement to tease the return of the project. In May, it was hinted that there are three projects in development and with enough months having passed, here’s hoping that news on it may be closer than we think.
