Cool, I'm still not getting my hopes up too high. As much as I like Silent Hill I always thought that the series is overrated. I'd still totally buy a new game though. I think I've bought them all but only ever finished 1 & 2.

VGC understands that Konami has already outsourced a Silent Hill project to a prominent Japanese developer, with a reveal due this summer.

Also pitched to Supermassive too apparently but didn't work

two people with knowledge of the Japanese publisher’s plans told VGC that it had approached Dark Pictures developer Supermassive to pitch a Silent Hill reboot, but the project was ultimately not signed.

Prominent Japanese developer?

Its like GM outsourcing Silverado truckcs to Ford.

Shows the way Konami took once they get rid of Kojima.

This is the most confirmed unconfirmed rumor I’ve ever seen at this point. Everyone’s who leaked it has been 99% accurate except when it came to actually revealing the trailer for it.

Thank FUCK the deal with Supermassive didn't go through (if this is legit). Dodged a bullet there. I hope they picked the new devs well. Them being Japanese devs is already a promising start.

I really REALLY hope it's NOT KojimaPro. I don't like his vision for Silent Hill (First Person cheap jump-scare fest in a corridor) and i don't like his obsession of using the faces of popular hollywood actors.

Silent Hills Kojima Souls presented by Miyazaki from From Software and Kojima Productions collab.

/s

Silent Souls not sounds bad for a horror game located on a dark fantasy realm developed by From.

No chance after what happened between them couple years ago

Most likely are :

Capcom
Square Enix
FromSoft
SEGA
Namco
Koei Tecmo

Thats what i can think off
That was years ago.

My two cents...
Capcom would just turn it to Resident Evil.
Square can’t do horror.
From would turn it into an action game and it wouldn’t be scary enough.
SEGA, lol
Namco, lol
Koei Tecmo could possibly pull it off but it would still be worse than if Kojima did it like with PT.

The people who remember this franchise are getting old....

From PS2 era if im correct...and ever since than theres nothing else...

They need to work fast before the fanbase completly disapear and the game is forgotten...
