Silent Hill Unreal Engine 5 Fan Remake Is in Development

The Silent Hill rumors seem to have no end, but in the meantime, a team of developers is working on an Unreal reimagining of the classic horror game.

Lately, rumors surrounding the Silent Hill franchise have been coming thick and fast. With fans believing Hideo Kojima’s upcoming horror game will be a new entry in the classic Konami series and film director Christophe Gans all but confirming the studio is rebooting the original installment, it’s hard for fans to not have at least a sliver of hope that something is occurring for the dormant survival horror games. However, whether a new title or a remake is coming or not, there is at least one fan project that is definitely in the works.

GAMERANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

According to a report from DSO Gaming, a team of developers known as Codeless Games is currently making their own reimagining of the first Silent Hill game. This iteration is being developed in Unreal Engine 5, and a new video shows off some gameplay footage taken from the classic school map. It’s definitely had a visual upgrade, though it seems to be attempting to retain the original’s feel and style. It’s certainly an impressive project that many will no doubt be looking forward to, though some people in the comments on YouTube have suggested this remake needs to be darker.


At the time of writing, there’s no release window for this UE5 project, though fans are encouraged to give feedback on what’s been shown so far. As for the official games, there’s still no word on what’s actually happening with the franchise. As mentioned above, it appears that Konami may be rebooting Silent Hill, which could tie in with Gans’ new film adaptation. This new movie will represent the third time Silent Hill has been translated to the silver screen, with an expected release date sometime next year.

On top of that, there have been rumors that Bloober Team may be doing a remake of Silent Hill 2. The studio hasn’t confirmed or denied these speculations, and with Layers of Fears coming out, some may consider this a clear message that the developer is not doing a SH2 game. Anything said about a remake, reboot, or even just a new entry in the series should be taken with a grain of salt for now.


In which case, Codeless Games’ project is the only new Silent Hill title that’s currently being made, even if it is unofficial. As one of the most influential horror games ever made, it’s understandable that fans would love to see it make a return. As it stands, the future of Silent Hill seems uncertain, but hopefully Konami is doing something with it, especially given the success of the Resident Evil remakes.
