But it’s not what you expected.
Many fans were disappointed to learn that there wouldn’t be a follow up to Kojima’s project P.T. While we may not be getting a new Silent Hill game anytime soon, Konami may be planning to release some media related to the brand according to recent reports.
It was noticed by one Resetera user that Konami Digitial Entertainment Co. Ltd. has filed for a trademark application at the United States Patent and Trademark Office. This new patent mainly concerns gaming machines which accept a wager. We can speculate then that Konami has plans to make use of the brand in some way related to pachinko machines or some other such slot machines. Since the patent has been filed by Konami Digital Entertainment Co. Ltd. and not Konami Gaming, Inc., it seems likely that the patent has been filed mainly for commercial purposes and not for anything related to the video game itself.
For now, we’ll just have to wait and see exactly what Konami has planned for the Silent Hills franchise.
