A French interview with Christophe Gans shows the director opening up to not one, but several silent Hill projects in development. The director has already teased another silent Hill movie he’s working on, and through that, he’s said to be collaborating with the silent Hill crew. It’s certainly a heavy tank of fuel for the fire that’s going on silent Hill rumor mill, made up of several silent Hill projects in development, including not only the recently reviewed game, but also the classic silent Hill games are returning to Steam.

“I work with the Silent Team, the original creators of Konami, there are several games in development right now, there are several teams on it, with a big lineup of games, they will revive the franchise. I think that they were really impressed with the success of the Resident Evil remakes which are obviously exceptional games.”

One of the other rumors circulating is a remake of Silent Hill 2 allegedly by Bloober Team, whose images of what appeared to be a concept build had leaked online. silent Hill fans should take some of these rumors with a grain of salt, though it’s likely that at least one silent Hill the project is underway. The Game Awards may be an area of ​​interest, as that would be the likely location if he were to appear in some capacity before the end of 2022.

There are reasons for and against a silent Hill recurrence, especially given Konami’s track record. However, due to the recent critical and financial success of resident Evil Capcom’s remakes, it’s understandable why Konami would want to dive back into video games, and under a talented team of developers who understand and respect the franchise, that might not be such a bad idea.
