Silent Hill: Book of Memories, a spin-off multiplayer take on the series, was supposed to be released back in February. Then, it got delayed to March. Finally, it was delayed again into October, where it now has a concrete release date.
We asked Konami’s Tomm Hulett, if there was anything in particular that led to so many delays in the case of this one game.
“Just normal hurdles,” Hulett explained to Siliconera. “A lot of the delays correspond with the [Silent Hill: Revelation] movie, because the first Silent Hill movie came out, and there weren’t any Silent Hill games near when it came out. And that’s kind of a bummer.”
“So with Book of Memories, [we were] trying to fit it into the same month as Silent Hill: Downpour and Silent Hill HD Collection. The game wasn’t quite done at that time, so we thought we’d take the extra time to polish it, and then wait until the movie came out, so gamers can feel like they don’t just have the movie—they also have a new game.”
Silent Hill: Book of Memories will be released on October 16th in North America for the PlayStation Vita. You can find a trailer for the game here.
