Developer of the title hints at a new project

PT should have been the follow up title for Silent Hill, but as mentioned earlier, things did not pan out. However, the 20 minute gameplay trailer for the title broke the internet. It garnered millions of views on YouTube, and it quickly became the talk of the town. Originally the title was going to serve as the debut project for Norman Reedus as the lead character.

Now one of the developers of the original series has offered an interesting insight that hints at a new game. Art director Masahiro Ito took to Twitter to share his thoughts about a title that is being worked on.

This serves as a subliminal yet major hint for the community, even though the cryptic tweet revealed nothing. The developer revealed in the consecutive tweet he cannot divulge anymore information on that matter.

Silent Hill is an important part of the horror genre

This iconic series has been nothing short of a masterpiece, having inspired a whole new generation of horror fans.

It delivered a memorable experience that has served as an inspiration for a mega-successful title in ‘The Medium.’

Jacek Zieba, producer of the game, also shared his deep love for the franchise and how it helped him to craft the universe of his game.
