The Silent Hill series is no stranger to rumors these days, especially with images for Bloober Team’s Silent Hill 2 Remake and the Sakura” teaser leaking. There’s also Silent Hill: The Short Message which was recently rated in South Korea. Amid all of this, film director Christophe Gans has confirmed that there are indeed “several games in development.”

Gans is known for directing the first Silent Hill film and is working on the reboot. Speaking to the French website Movie and Game (translations via ResetEra), he reportedly said, “I know a bit about the [next Silent Hill game]. I work with the Silent Team, the original creators. I work in collaboration with Konami.

“I’m working with the Silent Team, the original creators at Konami, there are several games in development as we speak. There are several teams on it, with a big line of games. They will revive the franchise. I think they were impressed by the success of the remakes of Resident Evil which are evidently exceptional games.

“I’m not working directly on the games, but I’m working with Konami. Not with Kojima, though, but with the Silent Team, who I met when I filmed the first Silent Hill movie. And they’re still here.”

Gans confirmed that Bloober Team were working on the remake of Silent Hill 2. When asked about the other games, he reiterated that there are “several teams” and that Konami is involved. The fact that the original Team Silent is playing a part is also good news.

This isn’t the first time that Gans has spoken about the franchise’s revival. Last June, he told JEUXACTU that the franchise would be “relaunched in terms of video games,” and the film would “become part of a global policy.”

Of course, the big question is when we can expect a reveal. The Game Awards, as always, seems like the right place, but time will tell. It takes place on December 8th, so stay tuned for further details.
