Rumor: Silent Hill Emerges From Konami’s Fog Of Dead IPs
According to a recent rumor, Silent Hill might not be dead after all, as Konami might have some special plans for the series in the future.
Silent Hill‘s been pretty much toasted since 2013’s abysmal PS Vita exclusive, Silent Hill: Book of Memories, a Diablo clone that banked on fan service appeal and wound up being a tremendous mess. In the following seven years, the once prolific horror franchise has laid in a shallow grave in Konami’s crypt of dormant franchises.
Until now, that is, if a new leak is to be believed.
The info comes at us from known leaker @aestheticgamer1, the same person who correctly leaked the Resident Evil 3 remake and recently came out with a strong hint at a new Dino Crisis being in development. According to the leaker, Konami has special plans in store for their flagship psychological horror franchise.

“Konami about two years ago reached out to various developers to pitch ideas for two Silent Hill games,” writes Aestheticgamer1. “One a soft-reboot of the franchise, the other an episodic TellTale/Until Dawn-style game to go alongside the reboot.”
They proceeded to shoot down accusations that these are just pachinko or slot games. “Konami were approaching video game development studios to seek interested developers for pitches to evaluate,” they states.
Aestheticgamer1 is careful to point out that they don’t know much outside of these details. That means what we’re left with, basically, is that Konami might be working on two new Silent Hill titles, and that one of them will likely be cashing in on Until Dawn‘s winning formula.
Silent Hill is a franchise near and dear to some of us, but we’ve got two minds about this. First of all, there’s no way of knowing that these leaks are true. Predicting that Capcom would remake Resident Evil 3 was, frankly, not too much of a stretch. Second of all, if they are true, there’s uh… no guarantee these will actually be good. Konami’s been hit or miss lately, putting aside all that drama from a few years back. That said, we still want more Silent Hill.
