More Silent Hill Rumors Arise and Look Increasingly Credible

More rumors about two new Silent Hill games keep flooding in, and they're looking increasingly likely.

It's looking more and more like at least one new Silent Hill title is in the works, at least if the internet rumor mill is to be believed.

Fans may have noticed some interesting tweets over the past couple of months, most noticeably the following tweet by series creature designer Masahiro Ito, setting the Silent Hill series subreddit on fire with speculation soon after it hit Twitter.

Back in 2017, Ito tweeted that if he were to work on a new Silent Hill game, the iconic Pyramid Head wouldn't be a part of the program. Which is, of course, understandable. Pyramid Head was meant to be the foil to James Sunderland. Not a catch-all unstoppable force.

In January, AestheticGamer claimed on Twitter that two new Silent Hill titles may be in the works. Yesterday, he had more to say on the matter, again claiming based on his sources that an episodic title, as well as a soft reboot were being shopped around to various developers.

There's more to what he offers today compared to before, though.

According to what he's heard, Sony was attempting to mediate between Konami and Kojima Productions. Not only that, but that Masahiro Ito has supposedly been working on the episodic title, and that a collaboration between Sony, Konami, and Kojima Productions is in "the talks," but not in development.

His sources have more concrete claims in regards to the Silent Hill soft reboot, though he cannot divulge which studios have their hands on it.

If even half of these claims are true, Silent Hill fans are sure to be in for a treat. After the loss of PT and the absolute shambles the series has been in since the PlayStation 2 era, a Silent Hill title from some of the minds that made the series great in the first place would be a much-needed breath of fresh air.
