I’ve nearly stopped paying attention to Silent Hill rumors.

They seem to crop up every month or so, without any official announcements coming of them.

A lot of fans have taken the latest rumors to be fact. Those rumors claim there are three Silent Hill games in development: a main entry from an unknown developer, a Silent Hill 2 remake from Bloober Team, and an episodic series of short games.

I’m still skeptical. I’ll believe it when I see it (and even then I’ll have doubts about whether or not it will be good).

Anyway, now something has happened that’s a bit more than just a rumor. As reported by Gematsu, Korea’s game ratings board rated a game called Silent Hill: The Short Message.

I’m not sure a game has ever gotten a rating and then turned out to not exist, so this probably means Silent Hill: The Short Message is a real game. The title has led some fans to believe it’s part of the episodic series from the rumors. This is on top of other supposed leaks related to the other two rumored titles.

So for all my skepticism, it sounds like something related to Silent Hill really is happening.

I wish I was more excited, but it’s been so long now that I can’t muster up much enthusiasm. I never thought I’d respond to Silent Hill news with apathy. Maybe once one of these games is actually announced, with official details to give us an idea of what to expect, I’ll feel excited about it again.

What do you think Silent Hill: The Short Message is? Do you believe the other rumored Silent Hill projects are real? And most importantly, are you looking forward to this theoretical Silent Hill revival?

  1. I would be surprised if they didn’t knock out another SH at some point. I’m not really looking forwards to it, I’d expect it to be fairly mediocre, but there’s always a slight hope of something surprising.
