Two separate sources have reported that not one, but two new Silent Hill games are either in production or being planned.The first comes from DuskGolem aka AestheticGamer who has previously leaked information on Resident Evil which turned out to be correct.
In other news while I’m dropping this stuff, and I think I can talk about this, I’ll mention there is a couple new Silent Hill games in the works. Konami about two years ago reached out to various developers to pitch ideas for two Silent Hill games, one a soft-reboot of the franchise, the other an episodic TellTale/Until Dawn-style game to go alongside the reboot. I don’t know anything more than that though, but I sure do hope Konami’s given it the appropriate budget and found the right developer to make those games succeed.
This is just a guess, but I’d say there’s a high chance one or both of those titles may be revealed this year, but we’ll see. I don’t actually know their plans or anything about these games other than their existence though, I don’t know much about the inner workings of Konami.
His statements have been backed up by another separate source.
“We can also verify that, while we can’t discuss any details, we’ve also heard from our own independent source that a Silent Hill project is in development,” stated website Relyonhorror.com , “These two sources are (in our opinion) the strongest evidence yet that Silent Hill may really be back from the dead.”
The last time we saw anything Silent Hill related from Konami was P.T., a demo that was launched during an E3 presentation which, when completed, was revealed to be Silent Hills which was to star Norman Reedus and was created by Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro. After Kojima’s acrimonious split the same team went on to make Death Stranding which has picked up hundreds of Game of the Year awards.
