The stream wasted no time, immediately diving into a trailer for the next-gen remake.

The original story follows.
A few hours before his official presentation today, details of some silent Hill plans may have been leaked by none other than Konami itself. Way to talk about yourself, huh?
In case you don’t know, Konami hold a silent Hill Live broadcast around 4:50 p.m. ET today on YouTube. The purpose of the show, according to the description of the video, will be to “reveal the latest news for the silent Hill series.” That’s cool, but that description was apparently updated when Twitter user Nibel discovered that an earlier version contained details about what might be featured.
According information now removed from livestream descriptionKonami has indicated that a Silent Hill 2 will be available on the PlayStation Store at some point. Although the description of the video may not be very interesting, a Twitch streamer named SurvivalHorrorNetwork shared an automated Twitch email they received informing them that a copyright holder – Konami – had monetized a test stream they were streaming. The copyrighted content named in the alleged email was “Silent Hill 2: Part 1”, which may indicate that any potential Silent Hill 2 is in preparation will be a two-part game.
Other clues emerge from live stream metadata, which has been posted on the ResetEra gaming forum for a thorough inspection. The name of codedrops Silent Hill 2the next movie Back to Silent Hill, and something called “Silent Hill: Ascension”. It looks like the livestream will also include interviews and a trailer, as well as possible mentions of PlayStation and Steam. The fact that the PlayStation was referenced in the metadata is a big deal for some Era users, as many have noted that a Silent Hill 2 the remake has long been rumored to be a timed exclusive for Sony’s consoles.
My box has contacted Konami for comment.
Finally, a site called WhatIfGaming claims to have heard Silent Hill 2 redo the details from an unnamed source, including that it will have a shoulder-mounted camera, “incredible” graphics, and the return of series art director Masahiro Ito and beloved composer Akira Yamaoka. The source claims that Bloober Team is developing the new Silent Hill 2, a rumor circulating since at least May 2022 when alleged leaked screenshots started doing the rounds. In June 2022, Bloober Team unveiled their current project, a Layers of fear reboot somehowwhich will build on the foundations of that franchise with “a surprising new story and gameplay direction.”
Well, we’ll see in a few hours what Konami has in store for us silent Hill Fans. But it looks like we already have a pretty good idea of at least one of its biggest “surprises.”
