In a recent interview with Eurogamer
, Silent Hill: Origins
producer William Oertel confirmed previous rumors
that the game met serious problems during its production. The solution, it appears, was to switch development teams altogether. "Game development isn't an exact science, and sometimes you need to go back and adjust some things. In this case, it has been for the best. It was decided that moving development to Climax's Portsmouth office would be best for the game, and that introduced delays."
As evidenced by the most recent video footage
, the game has certainly come a long way, and we're excited to find out more. It's clear that Origins
is in good hands, with the producers understanding what makes a Silent Hill
game so unique. "As I'm fond of saying, Silent Hill
is an exercise in subtlety, and therefore the changes seen in this game, compared to previous games, reflect that."
