Silent Hill 5 in development for PS3? Planning confirmed back in 2004

Silent Hill 2On August 18, 2004, Eurogamer interviewed Masashi Tsuboyama who was the chief designer of Silent Hill 4: The Room. He said that Silent Hill 5 was already being planned for next generation machines, although Konami had yet to decide which one.

He then confirmed: “We’re not sure which hardware we will put [it out on], but [it will be] on the best one, be it PS3, be it Xbox 2… It won’t be on the current consoles.”

Over two years later, this weekend, Jeux-France quotes the UK’s Official PlayStation Magazine as saying Silent Hill 5 is in development for PS3.

Silent Hill 5 is in development, said composer Akira Yamaoka who provided atmospheric and emotional music for the series. He wishes for the game to return to an atmosphere close to that in the second episode of the series, Silent Hill 2: Restless Dreams, thus making it more directed to ‘Psychological Horror’.”

No scans, no official confirmation from Konami, no word on a release date, if it’s multiplatform or if Team Silent is working on the game. We didn’t put the questionmark in the headline for nothing. Via Neogaf
