This week, Konami held a massive showcase unveiling several new Silent Hill games including a remake of Silent Hill 2 from Bloober Team, a smaller-scale project called Silent Hill: Townfall from Annapurna Interactive and a new entry Silent Hill F is being written by Higurashi writer Ryukishi07. However, this isn’t the last of the upcoming Silent Hill games as Konami has now confirmed that there are more on the way from other developers.
During the stream, Konami producer Motoi Okamoto said that more Silent Hill games are currently in the works from “equally talented” developers. He stopped short of mentioning any details about these secret projects, but it looks like the series is making a full comeback beyond the already announced titles.

It’s unclear which developers Konami is partnering with for future Silent Hill projects, but that hasn’t stopped the fanbase from speculating. Kojima Productions is a name frequently being thrown around as Hideo Kojima created the P.T. demo that would’ve led into Silent Hills before its cancellation. Unless Sony can mend Konami and Kojima’s relationship, it’s unlikely that we’ll see a revival of Silent Hills ever happen.
That said, there are plenty of exciting games to look forward to. Bloober Team is teaming up with Team Silent veterans Masahiro Ito, the creature designer, and Akira Yamaoka, the composer, on the remake of Silent Hill 2 which is showing plenty of promise. It’s set to launch sometime in 2023 on PS5 (as a timed console exclusive) and PC.
Silent Hill: Townfall is a smaller project coming from Observation developer NoCode and publisher Annapurna Interactive. Details are scarce on this particular project, but it’s likely to be an episodic title with more on the way.
Silent Hill F is potentially a new mainline entry coming from Resident Evil Re:Verse developer NeoBards Entertainment and Ryukishi07, the writer behind acclaimed Japanese horror visual novels such as Higurashi and Umineko. A teaser trailer shows off the game’s 1960s Japan setting and some eerie imagery fitting of Silent Hill.
