Although many have tried, fans of the Silent Hill universe are well aware that nailing down the series’ canon is no easy task. It seems further discussion of this topic will, from now on, be rendered pointless.
Tomm Hulett, producer of Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, explains that the newest installment–something of a re-imagining of the PlayStation original–doesn’t upset the Silent Hill canon because, frankly, there isn’t one.
“Each game is based on a character and it’s ambiguous what actually happened,” he continued. “Each game has multiple endings and some fans have theories on which ending’s which but we never know which ending actually happened. People who’ve played this game can tell it’s probably just as canon as any of the other ones.”
What does this mean for the series? Absolutely nothing. Whether there’s canon or not, the games are still fantastically scary, and that’s what matters.
