So every year around this time rumors start flying. Some are obviously fake. Some sound unrealistic, then end up true. Some are so likely, they feel like they've already been confirmed.

A big one right now is that Sony got the rights from Konami and are making a PlayStation 5 (console) exclusive Silent Hill game.

This seems to have some traction. But who believes it is happening and who think people are way too gullible?

In order for the winning side to have "I told you so" rights, your only options are to guarantee it will or won't happen.

Away with the fairies
I don't know, or really care. SH1 made me need a shit everytime I booted it up because it scared the, almost, literal shite out of me. So if i don't relive that, I won't be sad.

What I do know is that if this and Legacy of Kain is true, then there's nothing to stop the PS5 train 🤷‍♂️

It's not that long ago a new Silent Hill was confirmed in development (Kojima) and like TGO TGO said in the other thread just now, there is the new movie coming up too.

Silent Hill is not dead, and it never was.

Yeah, Silent Hills sounded awesome as is, but Siren Hill? That's perfection.
I very much disagree about the first part part of your quote but i very much agree with the second part!:messenger_smiling_with_eyes:

"Silent hill without Kojima wouldn't be Silent hill." That made my head go concave and caused a seizure from pure loss of IQ.
Amen.

  • We already know for a fact that Keiichiro Toyama is working on a horror game at Japan Studio.
  • We also know that since 2019 Masahiro Ito has been involved in the development of a new project as a core member. Bringing Akira Yamaoka wouldn't be hard, since an indie studio in Poland managed to strike a collaboration with him for The Medium.
  • Back in 2017 or 2018, Konami already did partnered with Sony Worldwide Studios - most probably Japan Studio - to develop the PS4 exclusive Castlevania Requiem.
With all of that in mind and without discussing the high reliability of some of the sources who support the rumor, it's not crazy at all to think that Silent Hill could now be a PS5 exclusive developed by a Sony first-party studio and with the involvement of some of the original developers.

I say its true.

Voted Zero chance. I just don't believe the rumors at all. It's one of those things that I have to see to believe.

I kinda feel like this one is real. And I'm not really that excited right now for it either.

But if it's real and it looks cool I'm sure I'll hype.

I don't know if this will end up being true but i just want to say that if there is one man in this planet that i trust to do Silent Hill justice (especially a Silent Hill remake) is its true creator Toyama Keiichiro. That man has proven both with the original Silent Hill as well as with the Siren games that he really understands what true,interactive horror is. No cheap jump scares to appeal to Twitch idiots,just pure atmospheric,phychological horror with unique gameplay mechanics.

If this is not being made by Toyama then they really shouldn't bother IMO.

70% of these rumors are fluff at the end of the day I remember when people thought R* was going to bring back bully just to say they canned it 4 years ago same thing with EA bringing back kotor. Since the 360/ps3 gen we get the same repeat of devs making promises and asking console companies to put X,Y and Z in said box and then we get the same cookie cutter COD,WOW and BR clones like its no tomorrow. Or we get games were they waste 75% of the budget on Hollywood writers and music composers,Famous actors,Advertisement and political activist. Same thing is going to happen this upcoming gen and the next.

You are confused.

In late 2013, a Bully 2 that was in development at Rockstar was canned. The most well-informed R* fans already knew about it, but it wasn't until last year that the major gaming outlets learned about it and ran some news articles on the topic.

That was a different Bully 2 from the one that Yan2295, a God-tier Rockstar insider, leaked in 2017 as the "next Rockstar game after RDR2". Around that time the game was heavily rumored to be in development... and still could be, depending on a couple of factors.

There's too much smoke, Alanah Pearce said recently on her Youtube channel that she had also heard about Silent Hills being made exclusive for PlayStation. I believe she said it was at last years GDC where she heard it....

What she recently shared on a video was an old-as-fuck piece of "information" that she heard a couple of years ago - I believe she said it was in 2016 - at DICE, about an early concept/mechanic/gimmick for Silent Hills - the one that was cancelled in 2015 - which involved sending creepy emails and messages to your social media accounts.

As I said, that's an obsolete piece of information that, due to the passage of time, has lost all the relevancy it could ever had... but that didn't stopped Alanah Pearce from using it as the perfect excuse to upload a video to her Youtube channel in order to capitalize on the hunger for Silent Hill news and get some views, even if she didn't have anything worthy to add to the discussion.

Wasn't aware of those circumstances, oh well.... I'm sure the games revealed will be awesome. They have never let me down with games.

They also leaked a new Midnight club and both of those games got de confirmed by R* in 2019 I doubt either of these games are still happening.

If it is real Sony will just hide it best they can like ff7. This is normally the pre E3 rumor season so nothing is to be believed right now

I want to put money on it being a year after the PS5 launches and we get a playable demo before hand. I don’t think they’d push it out so fast just because delays are pretty common.

"Guarantee" is a strong word, but yes, I do genuinely think a Silent Hill game is being made in some capacity for PS5. I do NOT believe Sony outright acquired the rights. I don't see Konami allowing that.

Dude, the Bully 2 that article was talking about is the one that was canned back in 2009. What I mentioned in my previous post was a different Bully 2, one that was - or is - in the works since, at least, 2016 and has not been debunked yet by anyone in whose word we can really trust. Again, Yan2295 is 100% reliable, people in the community trusts him over Jason Schreier when it comes to GTA VI stuff. Yan is accurate to the point that he was asked by Take Two to stop leaking information, so please, don't compare him to a random reddit idiot who uploaded a fake screenshot of a new Midnight Club. That's insulting.
