Twitter user Aesthetic Gamer claims “there is a couple new Silent Hill games in the works.”
According to his tweet, Konami approached a number of developers about two Silent Hill games two years ago. One should soft-reboot the series, while the other is expected to take the shape of an episodic adventure in the vein of Telltale titles.
The Twitterer even ventures a guess that Konami might announce the projects in 2020, but we’ll have to see how accurate this is. In any case, according to EuroGamer, Aesthetic Games previously shared Capcom leaks which turned out to be true. If the company is indeed going to reveal the games this year, E3 or Sony’s State of Play sound like plausible venues.
Fan site Rely on Horror confirms the development of Silent Hill games citing “own independent source.”
In the meantime, Silent Hill 2’s art director Masahiro Ito is working on a horror game developed by Hideo Kojima. It’s unlikely though that Kojima is working on anything Silent Hill, which remains a Konami IP.
UPD: Konami has confirmed to Eurogamer that the company is considering bringing the Silent Hill series back to life.
“We cannot share anything at this point but we are listening to customer feedback and considering ways to provide the next title.”
