When we last posted about Silent Hill: Downpour, it was still due to hit store shelves on November 4, 2011. Things have changed since then, and now the latest entry in Konami's survival horror series won't be arriving until the second quarter of 2012.
This vague release window should find Downpour in North American stores sometime between March and June of next year.
Previews of the title across various game outlets haven't been terribly positive, so perhaps this will give them time to make it the best Silent Hill they possibly can. Here's the synopsis for those just reading about the game, via Konami's official Silent Hill website:
Murphy Pendleton has been incarcerated for several years, having had his sentence extended once already. Due to his history at Ryall State Prison, he is being transferred to nearby Wayside Maximum Security Penitentiary-but a freak accident cuts the journey short. Waking up in a forest next to the wrecked bus, Murphy has a clear shot at freedom. He makes his way into the sleepy town of Silent Hill where mysterious locals welcome him into a slowly developing personal hell.
