Konami have announced a special Silent Hill live stream for Wednesday, October 19, 2022, where they plan to reveal the latest updates for the Silent Hill series. 

Well, it's finally happening. After years of rumours, leaks and speculation about the Silent Hill franchise , publisher Konami have officially announced a "Silent Hill Transmission" for Wednesday, October 19 at 2:00 PM PDT / 11:00 PM CET. 

Konami say they will reveal the latest updates for the popular horror game series at the special live stream but that's about it - the publisher did not tell us any additional info - so we'll have to wait for Wednesday for the big news.

Fans of the Silent Hill series are already ecstatic, expecting more than one new game announcement given that the rumours suggested Konami are working on multiple Silent Hill projects.

 Apparently, one of the Silent Hill games in development has been outsourced to a prominent Japanese developer while the second one is being made in partnership with The Medium developer Bloober Team. 

Some screenshots of the alleged Bloober Team Silent Hill project surfaced earlier this year, revealing a third-person perspective and eerie locations. As for the other project, which is reportedly helmed by the Japanese team, we don't have much. 

Some rumours suggested that the game could be a Sony PlayStation exclusive but that is yet to be confirmed by reliable insiders. We'll have to wait and see on Wednesday, which can't come soon enough.

Silent Hill series is one of the most popular Konami IPs but the Japanese publisher didn't know what to do with it for a long long time. It's been a while since we've got a Silent Hill game but now that Konami have begun outsourcing the IP, the future for this iconic horror franchise could indeed be bright.
