After a decade of dormancy, a beacon of hope shone through the fog when various sources reported the return of the Silent Hill series earlier this year. We can now call the revival official as publisher Konami has teased that the “latest updates for the Silent Hill series” are coming this week.

A tweet from the official Silent Hill Twitter account has announced that the “Silent Hill Transmission” livestream will air from Konami’s website on Wednesday, October 19th, at 2 p.m. PT.

 

 

The announcement has been retweeted by series artist Masahiro Ito and series composer Akira Yamaoka, which may indicate their involvement in the upcoming Silent Hill projects. After all, Ito revealed in 2020 that he was working on a new game, while Yamaoka teased last year that his next project would be “the one you’re hoping to hear about.”

It’s possible that we may see Silent Hill: The Short Message appear in the livestream, which is an unannounced title that was rated by South Korea’s Game Rating and Administration Committee last month.

Platforms have yet to be announced for any of the upcoming Silent Hill projects, but here’s hoping that the Nintendo Switch will be mentioned during the Silent Hill Transmission on Wednesday.
