Konami's working with a new developer on a new Silent Hill game for "next-gen consoles", aka PS3 and Xbox 360.
The publisher revealed the news at an event in Frankfurt, Germany yesterday - dutifully attended by Eurogamer Germany.
No other details were given.
Silent Hill: Homecoming was Konami's last original take on the IP and was released in autumn 2008 to a lukewarm reception. Better received was Silent Hill: Shattered Memories on Wii, a re-imagining of the first Silent Hill game from 1999.
Shattered Memories received a whopping 9/10 here on Eurogamer but sadly hasn't appealed to the Wii audience in quite the same way.
