Radek Marek, art director on Silent Hill: Downpour, Xbox 360 Magazine Italy that Konami’s looking to release a multiplayer title of the franchise on XBLA.

While Downpour itself won’t feature multiplayer for the moment, Marek said a separate chapter with the mode is being looked into.

“At the moment there will be no multiplayer modes in Silent Hill: Downpour, but Konami are investigating a separate chapter devoted entirely to the multiplayer,” said Marek.

“We do not know the details but it should be an XBLA title that most players have to survive in the town of Silent Hill.”

We’ll send Konami a mail.

Vatra Games’ new entry into the franchise stars an escaped prisoner named Murphy Pendleton, who unwittingly arrives in the town of Silent Hill after his prison bus crashes.

Silent Hill: Downpour will release for PS3 and Xbox 360 this autumn.
