Silent Hill is one of the most legendary horror series in gaming, but its future has been as foggy as the town itself for the past decade. Recently, the Silent Hill Transmission livestream shined new light on the mysterious series.
Maybe the show’s most surprising announcement was Silent Hill: Ascension. It’s an interactive streaming series from J.J. Abrams’ production company Bad Robot where viewers decide the course of the story, and it debuts in 2023.
Silent Hill: f, set in Japan in the 1960s, is being written by Ryūkishi07, creator of the horror visual novel series When They Cry. There’s no real sense of its gameplay yet, but its stomach-turning trailer looks like a whole new direction for Silent Hill that’s just as moody as the original.
A short teaser announced Silent Hill: Townfall from developer No Code. The team’s previous games Observation and Stories Untold are both psychological horror with excellent worldbuilding and unique interfaces. There’s a good chance Townfall will follow that pattern.
Confirming long-standing rumors, Konami revealed a remake of Silent Hill 2. Composer Akira Yamaoka and artist Masahiro Ito, two members of the original dev team, return for the remake helmed by The Medium developer Bloober Team.
