Silent Hill fans have been eating well today, as Konami showcased the future of the series after its pretty long hiatus. In the showcase, it was finally revealed that Silent Hill 2 is indeed getting a remake and that Bloober Team is the one behind it.

Konami also announced a brand new Silent Hill game called Silent Hill: f, along with two other titles called Silent Hill: Townfall and Silent Hill: Ascension, both of which are rather unique and not your typical SH titles.
