One of many foremost builders behind the Silent Hill collection has supplied some illuminating data on the timeline of the horror games. In line with him, Silent Hill 2 takes place a decade or two earlier than what was beforehand believed.
On Twitter, Masahiro Ito, a designer on the primary Silent Hill, and artwork director on the continuing two, mentioned the canon as the unique Workforce Silent understood it. He asserts that Silent Hill 2 occurs within the late seventies or early eighties, and undoubtedly not within the nineties. He can’t converse to chronological readings from later video games, however so far as he’s involved James Sunderland’s encounter with the ominous city happens throughout a particular window.
The chronology that’s explicitly given within the collection is from 2008’s Silent Hill: Homecoming, the sixth Silent Hill, developed by Double Helix Video games. There, we study Silent Hill 2 occurs in 1993, Silent Hill in 1983, Silent Hill 3 in 2000, and Silent Hill 4: The Room in 2001. Some followers have chimed in, saying the technology fits a late seventies era, as does the gun James might be using. The collection of survival games has usually been coy about onerous dates and instances, lending to the ambiguous nature of the psychological terror therein. Whichever you imagine actually depends upon for those who favour the unique intent over what turns into set in stone.
We haven’t had a brand new Silent Hill in a number of years now, a lot to the chagrin of the fandom. Final yr, Pyramid Head made an appearance in multiplayer game Dead By Daylight, and Silent Hill can be crossing over with Dark Deception: Monsters and Mortals in February.
As to the time, a minimum of it was not within the 90’s.
