Rumors have been swirling for years about the Silent Hill series in light of Hideo Kojima’s Silent Hills being canceled and leaving the company. The company has entered into a partnership with Bloober Team, which has sparked the belief that developer The Medium could be working on one of Konami’s Silent Hill revival projects. Additionally, Konami recently refreshed Silent Hill’s brands, including VR apps.

This new listing for Silent Hill: The Short Message is the latest in a long series of curious happenings adjacent to the Silent Hill series. However, we are still awaiting any sort of official announcement from Konami itself. In the meantime, stay tuned for further updates here at Shacknews.
