Silent Hill: Shattered Memories was arguably the first great horror title for the Nintendo Wii, as well as one of the better titles in the iconic horror franchise. Now, it’s been reported that the game’s lead writer and designer Sam Barlow is planning a sequel to the game.
In a Twitter post, Barlow revealed that he is currently pitching a Shattered Memories follow up to game developers.
He also clarified that this has nothing to do with Konami. This, then, also means that it’s not a pick-up project of the failed Silent Hill reboot that the Japanese developer was supposed to do with Hideo Kojima.
As of now, Barlow has not let slip on any further details on what the successor to Shattered Memories will be like. He also mentioned in a follow-up tweet that this isn’t what he is currently working on with Half Mermaid Productions, though he added that it will also be a spooky and awesome game to look forward to.
Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, which released in 2009 for the Wii, was a retelling of the story of the original games and followed Harry Mason on the search for his missing daughter in the town of Silent Hill. It featured a host of different side characters and endings, as well as a different plot from the original.
What was so interesting about the game was its use of psychological profiling to cater to each player by changing elements of the story based on the player’s choices.
Unfortunately, till we get an official confirmation by Barlow, the fate of the Shattered Memories follow up remains unclear. For now, fans of Silent Hill were recently treated to a crossover with fellow horror survival game Dead by Daylight.
