Another day, another Silent Hill story: this one claims, again, that there are “multiple teams” working on “multiple games”, including “the Silent Team” who were there when the first movie of Silent Hill was made in 2006.
Christophe Gans, the director of the first Silent Hill movie – who we already knew was working on a third Silent Hill movie – made some surprisingly candid revelations in a recent interview in which he seemingly confirmed the lingering whispers that which there is more than one Silent Hill game in development, including one by a central Konami in-house team.
His interview also definitely confirms that Bloober Team is working on a remake of Silent Hill 2, several games are in development, he hasn’t worked with Kojima, and he “knows a little bit” about the next game to come.
“I work with the Silent Team, the original creators of Konami, there are several games in development right now, there are several teams on them, with a big lineup of games, they will revive the franchise, I think they were really impressed with the success of the Resident Evil remakes which are obviously exceptional games,” Gans said.
The track “Silent Team” is likely to excite some fans; “Team Silent” is the name often given to the core development team for the first four games, though in truth this team has changed tremendously from game to game, with composer and sound director Akira Yamaoka being one of the only points in common between them.
This, however, hints that some members of the Silent Hill 1-4 development teams may be involved in the rebooted franchise. My bet is on designer Masahiro Ito and Yamaoka given that concept art for the former appeared in leaked images, and the latter got an interview last year for possibly talking too much about the secret project. Others like Keiichiro Toyama are currently linked to Slitterhead, of course, so it remains to be seen if their names will appear on new projects as well.
As for Gans’ second film and third in the franchise?
“In this second movie, I’m going to try to explain that Silent Hill is a place that owes as much to the creatures that live there as it does to what we project onto the city,” Gans reportedly said, translated by a Resetera resident.
“So I’m going to go into something much more psychological and much more psychoanalytical to try to get across that Silent Hill is not just this strange shape-shifting maze but also the projection of tortured and tormented souls and sometimes d ‘extremely paradoxical feelings that can be between mad love and violence.
The first of two Silent Hill films – despite some dodgy overtones – was surprisingly acceptable for a game-in-film spin-off, not least because of longtime composer Akira Yamaoka’s atmospheric sound and faithful replication of the most monster designs. iconic. Its successor, however, Silent Hill Revelation, was considered by many to be an absurd disaster.
As for the world’s worst-kept secret, the Silent Hill franchise revisited? Concept art for a Silent Hill game was leaked in May, featuring a woman’s face apparently made out of post-it notes with hurtful phrases written on it. Fans have speculated, through the tongue, that the game could be set in the UK. There’s also an apparent rumored remake of Silent Hill 2, which may or may not be the same game that Bloober Team makes.
YouTuber Dan Allen recently came forward as the source of a series of multiple game leaks and admitted to fabricating Silent Hill rumors, although you shouldn’t let that dampen your enthusiasm too much; a note for a new Silent Hill game called The Short Message – which may be a PT-like teaser – has been spotted in South Korea.
