Walter was mentioned in the newspaper in the dumpster and on the radio show in Brookhaven, I believe.
Were they already planning SH4? And if so, then why did they do a plot w/ Heather in SH3?
Just curious. :)

i think that they were not planning silent hill four because it was never suppose to be a silent hill game untill after preproduction remember.

What they planned was the whole SH story, all the games are hyperrelated, believe it or not. It's the same story for all games, only with different experiences.

They didn't plan it, but when they were making SH4, they decided "Let's flesh out this guy's story."

Well they didn't. We know that factually. They never planned anything past the first one, much less the fourth.

It was just a little bit of side-information..nothing special at the time. When SH4 came around, they apparently just decided to use that character rather than create a wholly new one with no previous mention in or relationship to Silent Hill.

Yeah man, nothing really indicates that except for Walter being in the second game, and that's hardly enough evidence to come to the conclusion that you have already reached. Like others have previously stated, SH4 was never meant to be a Silent Hill game.

Nope, if was never meant to be a Silent Hill game at all. They were just making a video game, and were reminded of Silent Hill while doing so, then decided to make Silent Hill 4.

Maybe Walter being in Silent Hill 2 was just them wanting to put some creepy killer in the game and scare you for a minute. Then later used him in their game?

Yeah. Just a sub-plot to add some detail to the story. To show that other things go on in the insane asylum, they call Silent Hill. I for one, think it was a great detail to add

Walter´s name was also in one of the graves at the cemetery before fighting Eddie, so i do think that they had plans for Walter in the future...

^But it was said SH4 was going to be an original game, but was changed early on. They could have easily taken Walter's name from the grave.

Straight from the director's mouth, SH4 -The Room- went into a planning phase right after SH2 was finished.

Basically, what happened here was that Team Silent split into two, where one started working on SH4 -The Room- and the other started working on what we call "Restless Dreams." The "Restless Dreams" team went on to create Silent Hill 3.

i agree that the walter reference was indeed a tie to silent hill 4. think about it if it didnt why even mention walter sullivan at all without going into any details?
surely in silent hill 2 that was the only article of him. Silent hill 4 examines more into walters killing spree and his motives.
it does make sense that they were planning it later
the catacomb read; james angela eddie, walter his victim miriam also. but why just leave the story broken? who was walter and miriam? why were they in the cemetery. come on, there were plans to clarify these questions in the game(sh 4)

Wasnt planned at all. Remember Silent Hill 4 was going to be a different game, but they decided to make it Silent Hill 4 and throw in some references to Silent Hill, along with the story of Walter which was brillitant
