With Konami's Silent Hill Transmission presentation only a few hours away, it looks like the reveals from the presentation have leaked ahead of time. These reveals include a confirmation that Konami is planning to revive Silent Hill 2, as well as new titles Return to Silent HillSilent Hill: Ascension, and Silent Hill f. We're not sure what these titles are just yet.

Perhaps the most intriguing leak is the confirmation of Silent Hill 2's revival. This could be a Silent Hill 2 remake, as has been rumored for some time, or it could simply be a port; as Dusk Golem points out, it's early days yet, so we're not sure. However, we do have an idea that whatever is coming will be in multiple parts. Yesterday, someone who streamed Silent Hill 2 gameplay on Twitch got a copyright claim from Konami under the title of Silent Hill 2: Part 1, which would definitely going to be an interesting choice considering the original game is around 8 hours. Maybe more content will be added onto the original Silent Hill 2 if this turns out to be a remake.  

In favor of the remake theory, WhatIf Gaming recently received a tip from an anonymous source on what to expect from said remake. It's being developed by Bloober Team, who developed The Medium and the Layers of Fear series. The game will have an over-the-shoulder camera view, and Silent Hill veterans Masahiro Ito and Akira Yamaoka will return.

Supposedly, the Silent Hill 2 remake will be a 12-month long PS5 exclusive, but it will also make its way to PC. Visually, WhatIf Gaming's source describes the game as "amazing", which means the remake could give Dead Space some competition as the best-looking horror game out there. WhatIf Gaming's tip was liked on Twitter by noted leaker The Snitch, lending some credence to the leak.

More Silent Hill should be coming our way soon, but let's hope it's better than Homecoming.

As for other Silent Hill titles coming in the Silent Hill Transmission presentation, a ResetEra thread gives us an idea of what to expect on this front. Enterprising users managed to grab YouTube metadata from the presentation's page before that data was removed, and the tags revealed what to expect from the presentation. 

Silent Hill 2, Silent Hill: Ascension, and Return to Silent Hill are all named in the metadata, which could line up with the recent news from Silent Hill movie director Christophe Gans' statement that multiple new Silent Hill games were coming. However, it's worth noting that we don't know what form these projects will take yet, so we'll need to wait and see what the presentation holds.

The presentation is set to be fairly long, clocking in at about 49 minutes. That's plenty of time for an extended look at whatever Konami is cooking up for the Silent Hill franchise. It's been a long time coming; the last Silent Hill video game released was Silent Hill: Book of Memories, which came out all the way back in 2012 for the PlayStation Vita. It's also worth noting that Konami still doesn't control the domain, which seems like a strange oversight considering that a big revival of the series appears to be imminent.

Rumors of these Silent Hill projects have been circulating for some time, although it's not clear whether Konami's upcoming reveals will point to these projects or not. A new Silent Hill game was seemingly rated in Korea a few weeks ago, and a big leak was DMCAd back in May, suggesting that it's probably real. We'll have to wait and see what the Silent Hill presentation holds.
