Silent Hill 2 & 3 Art Director Is Working On A New Secret Game
"About that, I can tell you nothing yet."
Masahiro Ito, the art director of both Silent Hill 2 and 3, is working on something new. The artist, who was last credited on Metal Gear Survive as a creature designer, has announced on Twitter that he's been brought into a new project.
Ito has left Konami and has been working as a freelance artist, but he says that he is a "core member" of this new project. In the tweet, he says that he hopes the title "won't be cancelled," perhaps recalling the debacle with Hideo Kojima's Silent Hills and its 2015 cancellation.

In a follow-up tweet, Ito clarified that he could not talk about the project just yet.

The Silent Hill series, particularly the first three entries, have long been praised and celebrated for their twisted enemy designs and strong art direction. Ito was a monster designer and background artist on the first game before becoming art director of the second and third games; he has not served as the art designer on another project since.
