Silent Hill: Townfall would be part of an anthology
Curiously, the first rumors after its announcement indicate that Silent Hill: Townfall is the first title in an anthology of the saga. In fact, there would already be more games in development in the hands of different Indie studios, as Konami’s intention is for each one to bring their unique culture to the Silent Hill universe.
(1/2) Btw, this is something I’ll mention. There’s actually even MORE Silent Hill games than was announced here. Silent Hill: Townfall is part of an “Anthology” idea for the franchise, but its actually only the first part of it. There’s other indie developers working on more

Unfortunately, from Silent Hill: Townfall we only saw a CGI trailer of a walkie-talkie, so we will have to wait to see what this first video game of a supposed anthology is about, as well as to know what more Silent Hill games will come from studios of the most varied.
