Two New Silent Hill Titles in Works, Leaker Claims
Silent Hill feels like it's been dead for a long time, doesn't it? I suppose it has. The last installment came in 2012 with Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, and most fans would rather forget it exists.
Now, though, a rumor is circulating that two Silent Hill games could be in the works. Reputable leaker AestheticGamer claims Konami reached out to multiple developers a couple of years ago for them to shop their ideas to Konami for two new Silent Hill titles.
According to AestheticGamer, one title is a "soft-reboot of the franchise" and the other "an episodic TellTale/Until Dawn-style game to go alongside the reboot."
The Silent Hill series has had a hard time finding its legs since Silent Hill 3 on the PlayStation 2. The fourth game in the series, Silent Hill 4: The Room, was not even meant to be related to Konami's renowned survival horror series; however, it was eventually released as a Silent Hill title with some story connections to the in-game town that shares it's namesake.
Whether this rumor holds any water is up in the air unless Konami comes forward with an announcement, and most fans of the original three or four games can attest Silent Hill hasn't met the same storytelling standard or terrifying heights as its original PS2 titles since Team Silent disbanded. The P.T. collaboration by Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro regrettably went nowhere.
A return to "our special place" may be just what we need in 2020 to turn the fate of Silent Hill around, but whether Konami actually reached out about these projects or has trusted them to developers that respect the essence of the series is yet unknown.
