Dusk Golem said TSM is supposed to be a teaser for all of the new Silent Hill games, including f, which is the new mainline entry in the series.

He also said Konami wants to make Silent Hill an annual series. Konami is hiring in-house for careers, including a game director. Maybe a New Team Silent? I’m feeling cautiously optimistic and bullish right now on these projects.

DuskG seems to imply that Short Note is the Sakura teaser. And that f is a full mainline title.

Masahiro Ito is also careful in his responses, intimating that there is possibly more that he is working on that was not announced on the stream.

Dusk Golem tends to mix speculation in with his leaks so beyond what we've seen confirmed, I wouldn't take every single thing he says as gospel. Though I would say all three games should be considered "mainline titles" unless otherwise specified by their devs.

For some insight on what Konami's overall strategy might be, the rumors of an MGS3 Remake are coming up again.
https://insider-gaming.com/metal-gear-s ... ke-rumors/

As with the Silent Hill strategy, it seems that Konami wants to make a big traditional gaming comeback, and are throwing everything possible at the wall to gauge interest in what best suits every franchise. And practically all of these will be outsourced.

Do people only want Remakes? Big new console titles? Smaller indy affairs? Multiplayer? Etc.

Guess we'll see if a similar thing occurs with MGS, though a big budget new main entry will be a larger question, especially as to who will fill Kojima's shoes.

I really hope Konami gives us another 2D (or 2.5D) Castlevania title if they are really looking to go all-in on their most beloved franchises. Metal Gear would feel really weird without Kojima so I think remakes (for now) is the way to go for that franchise. Or just do something new in that universe with mostly original characters. Silent Hill is something I don't really think remakes are necessary for but I'll take anything they'll give us on that front.

I'm thinking we'll learn more about Silent Hill: Short Message soon. Here's why:

We know that Silent Hill: Short Message was rated by the Korean board back in September 26th. I was curious to learn how long before a game release this usually happens, and I found some interesting hints:

- This article was published when Stray was rated by the same board. It is from April 7th, and it speculates that ratings come out usually 3-6 months before a game is released. This turned out to be accurate for Stray, as it was released on July 19th (3 months and 12 days later).

- This other article from November 3rd advises that a bunch of games were rated by the same board. One of those is the Resident Evil 4 remake. Now, we do know the release date of this one: March 24th, 2023. This puts the release date 4 and a half months after the rating appeared in the board, so also within the aforementioned 3-6 months.

That being said, 3 months after Silent Hill: Short Message was rated by the Korean board it will be Christmas, which is a great time to shadow drop a game. As a matter of fact, I'm secretly hoping that it will be shadow dropped during the Game Awards on December 8th, and that's a little less than those 3 months, but I don't think that this needs to be a rule, anyway.

Now, for what I think Silent Hill: Short Message is, I believe that it is a playable teaser, sort of like the Beginning Hour was for RE7. A short (but complete story) connected to a main one. The Cherry Blossom girl/monster we've seen in a few leaked pictures is very similar (at least thematically) to the girl in Silent Hill f, so I believe they might be connected somehow, but since Short Message looks to be set on present day, I'm thinking that it will "lay the ground" for Silent Hill f (which will eventually tell the story of how that creature/girl/monster came to be).

Of course, this is all speculation on my part, but that's what we're here for, right? Also, I'm not sure how Masahiro Ito fits in this, since he doesn't seem to be attached to Silent Hill f at all (but hey, maybe he is to Short Message only?)
There was a signature here. It is gone now.

TGA 2022 is coming up very soon. I think it's extremely likely we will see more of SH2R there. I also think The Short Message will finally drop, although I still don't know which project it's attached to, or even if it's related to one of the games we know about or something entirely new.

I wonder if we will learn more about f or Townfall.

What are you all expecting for TGA 2022 when it comes to new SH?

You mean TGA? I don't think we'll see anything Silent Hill there. Keighley chose his side in the Konami/Kojima conflict and Konami doesn't forget. lol

Given Konami pulled out of Sony's State of Play at the last minute, I get the sense that they want to control the messaging tightly. That's not to say it won't pop up at TGA - Keighley's been heavily teasing SH for months and months now - but I'm not expecting it just yet. Could be wrong, tho!
