How to watch the live stream, when it will begin, and what to expect are detailed below.

What to Expect

According to a post sent on Sunday by the official Konami Twitter account, “the latest upgrades for the Silent Hill franchise” would be discussed at the event. There have been no announcements regarding the specifics of the Livestream or if it would focus on gaming or other forms of media.

Reactions and replies to the Konami tweet may provide hints as to what will transpire during the Silent Hill Transmission. Longtime franchise composer Akira Yamaoka retweeted Konami from his own account, as did artist Masahiro Ito, who is credited with creating Silent Hill’s iconic antagonist Pyramid Head… even if he wishes he had never done so. Others not currently affiliated with any Silent Hill project, including Elijah Wood, also tweeted about the announcement.

The revelation of the broadcast comes weeks after Silent Hill: The Short Message was discovered on a Korean rating board. Since the beginning of the year, rumors have circulated about a new game in the brand, including one that claimed “several Silent Hill projects” were in development.

If a new game is announced, it will be the first entry in the SilentHill series since 2012, when Silent Hill: Downpour and Silent Hill: Book of Memories were both released for the PlayStation Vita.

According to metadata connected with the official YouTube video, a Silent Hill 2 remake appears to be among the projects that could be announced during the event. For more information about Silent Hill, see the journey we did to the “actual” town of Centralia, Pennsylvania.
