According to a new report from VGC, Konami is overhauling its approach to AAA game development, and part of that plan includes recruiting external studios to develop multiple new Silent Hill games.
News that multiple Silent Hill games are currently in development at various external studios comes as quite a surprise. Konami has typically refrained from collaborating with external studios on projects in the past, and Konami was quick to deny rumors that a Silent Hill reboot was happening following rumors that new Silent Hill games were finally coming way back in early 2020.
All of the hype and desire for a new Silent Hill game, however, could have convinced Konami to do what it takes to relaunch the famed horror series. There have been more rumors about Silent Hill’s reboot than we can count, including the possibility for it returning at the launch of the...
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...
The drama behind a new Silent Hill game has been as gruesome and terrifying as the game itself. We heard new games were coming, then we heard it would return for the PS5, then in quick succession Konami shot the rumors down. A month or so later, a Japanese horror artist hinted at a Silent Hills revival, and a month after that, yet another leak said that a reveal was imminent. The trail has, for the most part, been cold ever since. So, what in the world is going on? Is it coming? Is it not? Well, known (and usually accurate) leaker, Aesthetic Gamer, has clued us in on some new facts, and now it looks like Silent Hill could be revealed as soon as next month.
Now, before we get into the tweet from Aesthetic Gamer, I should point out that he was very...
Known Silent Hill and Resident Evil Leaker @AestheticGamer has suggested that Resident Evil 8 will be “the darkest and most gruesome RE yet” while at the same time suggesting that, while he doesn’t know anything he hasn’t shared about Silent Hill, that the game will be revealed soon.
For what it’s worth, Aesthetic Gamer has been pretty reliable in the past. In January, he suggested that both Silent Hills and Silent hill would be revealed this year. Then, in March, he suggested that Silent Hill would return for the PlayStation 5. As far as Resident Evil 8 goes, he’s been quite forthcoming with information as well. In the last month and a half he’s said that Resident Evil 8 will piss you off, that it would feature a first-person view, and that it will be a sequel to RE7: Biohazard.
With Resident Evil 7 pushing...
A recent post on ResetEra with a pair of Instagram screenshots from Japanese horror artist Suehiro Maruo has added fuel to the fire that burns for a Silent Hills revival. The caption on one of the images reads “Afternoon invitations hope you’ll join in” with a tombstone image that reads “Silent Hills” in both English and Japanese katakana.” The other image features the Midtown East Konami display outside the entrance of Konami’s Tokyo HQ.
This is actually big news considering the previous rumor that Konami was developing two new Silent Hill games (one a revival of the Silent Hills spin-off and the other being a remaster or new entry to the main Silent Hill series.) A rumor a couple of months later said that both of those games were returning for the PlayStation 5. Konami also recently shot down the rumors altogether, saying there was...
Kojima has done a lot of great work in the gaming industry and is responsible for the great Metal Gear Series, the more recent Death Stranding, and let’s not forget the horror game P.T. or the canceled Silent Hills. Well, as it turns out, he has some new ideas for a new horror game, and he quite literally wants to scare you so bad that you crap your pants.
Kojima sat down with BAFTA for a short interview where he elaborated on P.T. and disclosed that he has some new “ideas” for a horror game that he’s itching to make.
“PT ended as just an experiment, but I would like to make another horror game someday. Something that uses a revolutionary method to create terror, that doesn’t just make you pee your pants, but crap them. I already have ideas in mind.”
If you’ve played the P.T....
Back in January 2020, we told you that new
Silent Hill games were finally coming, and just earlier in March we told
you that talks
for a new Silent Hill (an spin-off Silent Hills) were underway and might
even launch for the next-gen Playstation 5. Now Konami has stepped in an
officially dismissed all rumors surrounding the supposed reboot of the Silent
Hill series. But, does that mean Silent Hill is officially dead forever?
A new e-mail send to Rely
on Horror – the same outlet that reported the rumor that talks for Silent
Hill were underway – included a complete dismissal of Silent Hill being in the
“We're aware of all the rumors and reports but can confirm that they are not true. I know it's not the answer your fans may want to hear. It's not to say we are completely closing the door on the franchise, just not in...
of a new Silent Hill game have been floating around for a little while now,
with the last reports happening back in late January 2020. Now, new rumors have
surfaced, with the big takeaway being that talks for a Silent Hill revival are
ongoing and that Silent Hill could arrive for the PlayStation 5.
The rumors originated from Twitter user Aesthetic
Gamer and the outlet Rely
on Horror, both of which have a pretty honorable track record when it comes
to the accuracy of rumors. These new rumors say that SIE Japan Studio will be
heading up the reboot of Silent Hill and it will be helmed by none other than
Keiichiro Toyama, the director and writer of the very first Silent Hill.
Masahiro Ito, the man behind creature design for the first four games and Akira
Yamaoka, the composer for most of the franchise, will also be involved. This is
getting good, right?
New reports have come to light and we’re happy to say that
Konami is more than likely developing not one but two new Silent Hill games. This
word comes via Aesthetic Gamer on Twitter who says that Konami has reached out
to developers over the past couple of years and requested different pitch ideas
for new Silent hill games. Reportedly, one of these games will be a “soft-reboot”
of the franchise itself while the other would be an episode-based game similar
to that of Until Dawn.
about two years ago reached out to various developers to pitch ideas for two
Silent Hill games, one a soft-reboot of the franchise, the other an episodic
TellTale/Until Dawn-style game to go alongside the reboot. I don't know
anything more than that though, but I sure do hope Konami's given it the
appropriate budget and found the right developer to make those games succeed.
even more speculation to...
Fallout 4 was a good game in its own right, as was Silent
Hill. But, what happens when you mix the two? Take a post-nuclear,
post-apocalyptic world in Fallout 4 and blend it with lots of fog, hellish monsters,
and the creepiest sounds you can imagine at the most random times. It’s not
hell, although we can’t imagine hell being much worse. That’s also what makes
the Whispering Hills mod for Fallout 4 so freaking amazing. Well, if you like
Silent Hill, anyway.
The Whispering Hills mod is basically the hellish landscape
I described above, and it’s one where you can be dragged into a world of horror
at any given time. Fallout 4’s Commonwealth will feature 10 different thick fog
effects, and a whole bunch of new surprises that seem to always catch you off-guard.
The usual Fallout 4 background noises have been replaced by much spookier
noises and there’s a full lineup of...
