Silent Hill Release Date: After being closed to the public for ten years, the notorious town of Silent Hill is once again welcoming aficionados of intense psychological horror. On Wednesday night, Konami held a presentation on YouTube in which they revealed three new Silent Hill games: Silent Hill Townfall, Silent Hill F, and a remake of the critically popular Silent Hill 2. It was also hinted that there will be a new movie tie-in called Return to Silent Hill, as well as an interactive live stream series called Silent Hill Ascension.

Silent Hill Release Date
Polish developer Bloober Team, which also worked on Blair Witch and The Medium, is working on the remake. Composer Akira Yamaoka and concept designer Masahiro Ito, widely known for his creation of Silent Hill’s most famed monster, Pyramid Head, are both collaborating as well.
In an interview video included in the presentation, Bloober Team’s creative director Mateusz Lenart said that the studio was committed to recreating the original game’s feel while updating some aspects for the modern era. One such update was switching from a third-person to an “over-the-shoulder” camera perspective. They want the game to have the same impact that the original had 21 years ago, he said. Further information, such as the fact that the game was built using the brand-new Unreal Engine 5, was provided in a post on the PlayStation blog.
No release date was given, but the game would be available for both PC and PS5 at launch, with the PS5 version being a console exclusive for the first year.
No Code, the Glasgow-based company behind Stories Untold and Observation, and Annapurna Interactive are working together on the first of two new Silent Hill games, named Townfall. No release date or platform information was provided in the teaser video, which just showed a vintage handheld TV gadget. Silent Hill F is the second new title, and it’s being written by Ryukishi07, who created the When They Cry visual novel series. It’s set in Japan. The second trailer suggested a mashup of Japanese folklore and the Swedish folk horror flick Midsommar. A new release date was not mentioned.
Additionally, two spin-offs were revealed. Return to Silent Hill, helmed by original Silent Hill filmmaker Christophe Gans, is in production. Together with Genvid, an industry leader in interactive live streaming, and Bad Robot, a production company established by J.J. Abrams, many media organizations are working on an interactive streaming series called Silent Hill Ascension that will premiere in 2019.
Producer Motoi Okamoto said during the broadcast that Konami is collaborating with various developers from across the globe on upcoming Silent Hill projects.
The final installment in the Silent Hill series was 2012’s Silent Hill: Downpour, which was met with lukewarm critical acclaim at best. At the time, Kojima Productions, the company founded by Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima, began working on a new installment of the series dubbed Silent Hills.
An early playable demo for the game, simply labeled “PT,” was published to launch the project in 2014, and it quickly gained notoriety as the scariest video game demo ever created. Silent Hills was scheduled to release the next year, however, it was scrapped due to allegations of plummeting morale and bad working situations at Konami studios.
The video game industry has been a source of uncertainty for Konami, while the company’s pachinko machine division has been a source of enormous profits. However, speculation started two years ago that the publisher was planning to revive three of its most successful video game series: Metal Gear, Castlevania, and Silent Hill. Many ideas and production companies were touted, but none were officially confirmed. At the time, gaming news outlets hypothesized that not one, but many, new Silent Hill games were in the works, with some even calling for a reboot of the franchise.
Not until Sunday evening, however, did the official Silent Hill account tease a video reveal with the tweet, “In your restless dreams, do you see that town?” Even though Konami hasn’t released a Silent Hill game in 10 years, the depth of their dedication to the creepy hamlet was made abundantly obvious throughout the stream’s 45 minutes.
