It's officially happening: Konami has confirmed the next Silent Hill game will be revealed next week on October 19 at 5PM EST.

Konami today announced that it will reveal the "latest updates for the Silent Hill series" next Wednesday, Predictably, the internet went into a meltdown over this news.

Fans have been waiting years for a new Silent Hill game, and rumor has it there are as many as three projects in the works including a Silent Hill 2 Remake from Bloober Team, a new game called The Short Message, and an episode game from Annapurna Interactive.

Silent Hill The Short Message was recently rated by the Korean entertainment ratings board.

There were also nebulous rumors that Sony was funding two new Silent Hill games including a reboot and a remake. There were early plans to potentially revive Silent Hills, which was cancelled in 2015, and get Hideo Kojima back onto the project. Rumblings said that original Silent Hill creator Kiichiro Toyama would lead the reboot project and other series vets like creative designer Masahiro Ito and Akira Yamaoka would be involved too.

Whatever the case may be we'll finally have actual answers soon and the rumor mill will finally be put to rest...for now.

Dusk Golem, who has a close ear to Konami's going-ons, says that The Short Message will be released as a playable teaser sometime soon.

After years of speculation, rumors, and waiting, Konami is finally delivering on its promise to revive fan-favorite franchises for the modern gaming world.
