Insider AestheticGamer aka Dusk Golem has provided some additional info on the possible connections between Silent Hill f and Silent Hill Sakura/The Short Message, a game that has long been rumored to be in development but which was noticeably absent from last week’s Silent Hill Transmission Livestream.
In a recent Twitter thread, Dusk Golem said:
Let me also clarify upfront, Silent Hill f is NOT Sakura/Short Message. They’re related, obviously, they’ve got the same motif going on & do share a connection. Ito also is not working on Silent Hill f, but he did work on Sakura. Just keep that in mind, they’re connected but not the same.
Dusk Golem added:
Japan in the 1960s, which is when Silent Hill f is set in, was a time of civil unrest when “old” Japan & “new” Japan was at an all-time high in conflict, the government was changed & uprooted many rural Japanese people’s lives. As Silent Hill is about a small town, that might be relevant.

(1/26) ALRIGHT, this is my observations thread for the Silent Hill f teaser. If you’re interesting in SHf, I recommend reading this thread, I have a lot of interesting things to say.
Firstly, we’re gonna’ talk about that f. The most obvious first thought is “five” or “flower”, pic.twitter.com/mOCUmv0UDO

According to tradition, cherry blossoms (also known as Japanese cherry or Sakura) are a “symbolic flower of the spring, a time of renewal, and the fleeting nature of life. Their life is very short. After their beauty peaks around two weeks, the blossoms start to fall.”
Whether these latest details are based on anything concrete or are merely speculation remains to be seen. We will continue to report on any new updates as soon as more details are confirmed about the game.
No platforms or release windows have been revealed for Silent Hill f yet.
