[Update - May 17]: Speaking to IGN, Bloober Team has provided a statement on their involvement in the Silent Hill rumours. Here's what CEO Piotr Babieno said:
"We can’t comment on anything we are doing because we appreciate our relationship with our partners, of course. So we can’t [say] anything. We will make an announcement about our future projects as soon as we can. So then you will know much more [...] Officially."
[Original Story - May 16]: Silent Hill has been dormant for what feels like an eternity, as franchise fans know all-too well. However, it's looking like this long period of inactivity might finally be over soon! According to various reports, multiple Silent Hill projects are in development, including remakes and brand new releases.
Let's start off in the remake department, shall we? Polish developer Bloober Team — of Layers of Fear / The Medium fame — is supposedly at the helm of a Silent Hill 2 remake. Influencer NateTheHate says such a project is set to include "reworked puzzles" and "new endings", which prominent leaker Jeff Grubb has backed up. Bloober Team already confirmed that it's working with Konami is some capacity, so this one seems the most likely of the bunch!
Both Grubb and NateTheHate claim that other Silent Hill projects are also in the works, as Konami looks to spin up Silent Hill development again. VGC then claims that the publisher has liaised with several developers for these Silent Hill projects, which could include an episodic series among other titles. Funnily enough, VGC sources said that one of those developers is Supermassive Games, a studio that's become famous for its episodic horror games like Until Dawn and The Dark Pictures Anthology. Publisher Annapurna Interactive was also reportedly involved in discussions with Konami, although whether anything became of those discussions is unknown.
Finally, in your last bout of Silent Hill rumours, VGC has also been told that a proper mainline series entry is also in development. The site had previously reported that a Japanese developer was working on such a Silent Hill project, although the two may not be linked.
So yeah, there seems to be a lot going on with Konami's dormant horror franchise, finally! We should say that all of this is rumours and reports at present, and nothing is official from Konami just yet. Still, we'd like to believe at least some of this could be real, especially after the potential of P.T from Kojima Productions was never fulfilled.
