It Might Not Be Silent Hill, But Hideo Kojima Is Working On a New Horror Game

Kojimia is apparently even in talks with famous Japanese horror artist Junji Ito

With all the ups and downs surrounding silent hill and a huge desire for PT – the demo we got instead of a new Silent Hill game – to come to life, we finally have some good news to share. A new report from ComicBook quotes gruesome horror artists (also known as a mangaka) Junji Ito, who says he’s been in talks with Hideo Kojima about a new horror game that he “be me working on.”

“I do know director Kojima and we have been in conversation that he may have a horror-based game that he may be doing, and so he has invited me to work on that, but there are no details on it yet”

Unfortunately, Ito stopped short of giving any other details, but it seems as if he doesn’t have a lot of details, either. However, you should know that Junji Ito was the artist that Kojima wanted to work with in making PT, but the project was cancelled before he even got to drawing the first sketch. So, perhaps, they are discussing a rebirth of PT in some form. We do know that Kojima’s plan for his next horror game is to make you crap your pants, so there’s that.

Is there a chance Kojima and Ito could be working on a new Silent Hill? Well, rumors would have us say yes, considering there have been a lot circulating lately. We’ve heard that Konami was working on developing two new Silent Hill games and that it could return for the PlayStation 5.  Less than two weeks after those rumors were fired off, however, Konami came right out and denied them, saying little more than it wasn’t closing the door on the series. Things were silent for about a month until another Japanese horror artist, Suehiro Maruo, hinted at a Silent Hills revival on social media, which was followed up a month later with a leak that a reveal was imminent.  More recently, we heard that a Silent Hill PS5 reveal could happen in August of 2020, but the trail has gone cold for the past couple of weeks.

The good news is that even if Kojima’s next game isn’t a Silent Hill reboot, you can bet that it’s going to be awesome anyway. The real question now is when we’ll see it. If he’s just now in talks with artists, then chances are it’s going to be a few years before it happens. The up side to that is that the game will likely take advantage of next-gen console capability, and will probably, make you crap your pants. Here’s to hoping, right?
