😱 The event promises to share the latest updates on the Silent Hill series
📃 Multiple Silent Hill titles are reportedly in development

Konami has promised to share new updates for Silent Hill after a lengthy hiatus for the survival horror series.
A Silent Hill Transmission livestream will take place on October 19 at 2pm PT / 5pm ET / 10 pm BST / 11pm CEST and will provide new information on the Silent Hill series. Multiple Silent Hill titles are in development, according to Silent Hill movie director Christophe Gans, but we’ve only had dubious leaks and rumors to go off ever since Konami canned “Silent Hills”, which was due to be developed by Hideo Kojima of Metal Gear Solid fame.
The most likely title to be revealed during Konami’s event is a remake of Silent Hill 2, which is apparently being developed by Bloober Team. Bloober Team recently made The Medium, a psychological horror game that was one of the few Xbox Series X exclusives to launch on Microsoft’s console before it came to PS5.
We could also see a new Silent Hill film or TV series, as actor Elijah Wood responded to the official announcement. He might also just be a big fan of the games, but it’s more likely that he’s involved in at least one of the upcoming announcements in some way.
What’s more, Silent Hill veteran Masahiro Ito also retweeted the announcement, suggesting the art director could be involved in some form or another. That’s bound to get gamers excited, but it’s worth tempering your expectations.
Konami has had a nasty habit of getting fans’ hopes up, only to announce something like a pachinko machine. However, the Japanese publisher has recently released some well-received retro collections of classic games like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection.
Could Silent Hill finally get the love it deserves? You’ll have to tune in to the Silent Hill Transmission on October 19 to find out.
