There Will Be More Silent Hill Games
Konami knows that Silent Hill is a popular IP and that's why it wasn't at all surprising to see the company confirm plans to continue the Silent Hill franchise.
In statements made to Kotaku, the company says that it remains committed to Metal Gear and Silent Hill, even with the impending departure of Kojima. Here's what the company had to say about the future, in full:
"We would also like to take this opportunity to state that the METAL GEAR and SILENT HILL series, both beloved by countless fans around the globe, are also extremely important to KONAMI. We have nurtured them with care over many years since their inception, and will continue to produce products for both franchises, but we are not currently at a stage where we can announce the path these future titles will take."
It's not clear what this means in terms of timing but it doesn't look like Silent Hill series will be vanishing forever. It could take awhile before we see anything materialize though. Stay tuned.
