Your Next Visit to Silent Hill Is Now Set For 2012

Last we heard, October was going to be a big month for the Silent Hill fan. We'd expected Silent Hill Downpour and the Silent Hill HD Collection in time for Halloween. We'll how does a dark and spooky St. Patrick's Day sound?

After seeing the release dates for Silent Hill Downpour and the Silent Hill HD Collection slipping into 2012 at many retailers—and hearing via MCV that it had been "officially" delayed—we checked in with Konami. Expect both new Silent Hill games to hit in "early 2012," reps say.

Vatra Games is working on Silent Hill Downpour for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, featuring a new protagonist in escaped convict Murphy Pendleton. Silent Hill HD Collection brings Silent Hill 2 and Silent Hill 3 to those consoles with a high-def makeover.
