The psychological survival horror game was expected at the end of October to tie in with Halloween. No reason was given for the delay, and the publisher was reluctant to discuss the matter further.
I’m pretty sure that Konami simply wanted out of a busy release period. And that maybe the extra time will even be used to address a few issues.
Silent Hill: Homecoming was released in the US at the end of September and has earned decent critical applause – resulting in a Metacritic average of 73 per cent.
Maybe releasing in a less “competitive” period could see Silent hill reaching more console disc trays than it may have had it released at the end of the month. I know this game may have sneaked its way back onto my “too buy” list again after being snubbed out by the likes of titles like Dead space and Gears of War 2.
