Rumors Say Silent Hill Reboot is PS5 Exclusive, Demo in the Works

New rumors point to Silent Hill reboot as a PS5 exclusive, but how reliable are they?

Another week, another round of Silent Hill rumors. This time around, the Silent Hill rumors claim a soft reboot is in the works, and the Silent Hill reboot would be a PlayStation 5 exclusive.

Though they should be taken with a grain of salt for now, it’s possible these rumblings have a tinge of truth to them. The source of the Silent Hill reboot rumors is AestheticGamer, the same source that leaked information about the Resident Evil 4 remake that Video Game Chronicles went on to verify and support.

AestheticGamer’s information reportedly comes from a number of independent sources they verified. These sources say Sony did not purchase the IP from Konami as other rumors suggested, and Silent Hill composer Akira Yamaoka and series creator Keiichiro Toyama directing the project.

If true, the rumors say a Silent Hill reboot announcement would be coming soon and a playable demo would follow shortly after.

As stated above, the veracity of these rumors is still up for debate. Konami debunked the first round of Silent Hill reboot rumors, though AestheticGamer proved right before and has remained consistent so far with Silent Hill. It’s worth keeping an eye on, either way.
