Silent Hill Rumors Intensify with Multiple Team Silent Staffers

The Silent Hill reboot rumor that's floating around just looks more and more likely.

Those Silent Hill rumors just keep on coming, and they're looking increasingly credible.

One ResetEra user, KatharsisT, claims that they can 100% confirm that a Silent Hill reboot is being worked on by series creator Keiichiro Toyama, creature designer Masahiro Ito, and sound designer Akira Yamaoka. Not only that, but they also claim the title will be announced in the next few months.

This perfectly lines up with other recent rumors and hints, outside of the rumor Hideo Kojima had anything to do with the project.

Manga artist Suehiro Maruo is also rumored to be working on the project, backed up by a post put on his Tumblr and Instagram.

Those bummed that Junji Ito isn't rumored to be involved in the project don't need to worry: Suehiro Maruo's work is on the same level of bizarre.

Many fans of the series would consider Silent Hill to be dead after its fourth entry on the PlayStation 2, with Team Silent disbanded after the title and other studios taking it into their hands in the years after. If these rumors are true, this game will be the first we've seen Toyama, Yamaoka, and Ito work on collaboratively in over 15 years.

One can't say "any news is good news" in regards to Silent Hill these days, but all these rumors really do seem like good news.

Thanks, PushSquare.
