I forgot to mention, but I would be extremely curious as to how they would be "taking the series to the UK" considering the franchise is literally called "Silent Hill" and revolves around that sleepy town in Maine (or sometimes West Virginia), America.
I was reading rumors the other day about an episodic game. It hasn't been confirmed. It's just speculation. But I always did say this would have been a great idea all along, as it can give very minor characters some focus in a game where if they're smart, they will be able to create a lot of stories just by using the same assets, and cutting down production costs. More for less, basically.
The series is different from other horror franchises in that it doesn't just have to be about Harry Mason, James Sunderland, or any of the main characters that are built up, and people feel they are vital to the success of those particular games. The games in this series however, don't have to revolve around just these people. This isn't Leon Kennedy, or Jill Valentine.
In the games, you always find out so much about strangers in the town from looking at journals and other writings that you find, just scattered around. So it's going to be interesting if we see it playing out, to where these people are formally introduced.
