Tensions are rising around the office which can only mean
one thing: the fall game explosion is nearly here. Soon we’ll be playing
Skyrim, Modern Warfare 3, Skyward Sword and Assassin’s Creed Revelations all in
the same day and doing our best just to keep our heads above water. With so
many huge games demanding our attention, it’s not unusual for some titles to
get lost in the shuffle, and that includes promising reboots to our favorite
franchises. Perhaps with that in mind, Konami has announced that Silent Hill:
Downpour, the next entry in its haunting series, has been delayed from November
to the first half of 2012.
After some European retailers were listing the game as
coming out next year, Konami confirmed
that the game is coming out sometime between April and June of next year. We
last saw Downpour at Tokyo Game Show, which included a new trailer
with the regrettable music choice of Korn. Hopefully this means the game will
get some polish, ending up better than had it come out in a couple weeks and
was passed over by all but the most faithful fans.
