Here is a new article: https://www.tweaktown.com/news/7121...ent-hill-games-reboot-hills-remake/index.html

Lets try to imagine what the reboot will be like. A game similar to Silent Hill 1-4 with ray tracting? count me in! I ordered a Pyramid Head Figma PVC figure from Ebay to celebrate. My guess is that in the future Sony is going to announce some kind of partnership with Konami. Sony knows not to let Metal Gear and Silent hill die.

I don't mind if Kojima is in this project but I hope we get original character designs instead celebrities like we got with Death Stranding and I like P.T. as a concept but I don't want to see first person Silent Hill game at all.

I believe "P.T." was going to be a 3rd person if Konami didn't cancel Kojima.

I love the first 3 silent hill games but i would be very surprised if a new SH game would be to my liking. Something tells me it will be another first person jump scare fest like PT that is catering to Twitch streamers and is very popular with the mainstream nowdays. But even if they try to keep it faithful to the first games i don't think Silent Hill as a series has anything new to say.

Fot the Remake i pray to God they keep it 3rd person and they are as faithful as possible to the atmosphere,story and characters.

I'd rather prefer a hard reboot of the Silent Hill franchise. Maybe something in the style of Donkey Kong Country : Tropical Freeze or Gran Turismo

If Kojima is making a horror game I hope he just use the title P.T. instead of Silent Hills.

Silent Hills soft reboot by Sony Japan Studio and Kojima horror game entitled P.T.

I said this before, I liked P.T. as a concept for it atmosphere not for its gameplay. I don't want first person Silent Hill game. Also Kojima is good director but his huge western movie fan and wants to use celebrities as characters like he did with Death Stranding, which honestly not a fan of.

If there is going be reboot or spiritual successor to Silent Hill then I want to see Keiichiro Toyama directing the game instead of Kojima.

For once, I want to believe. All those rumours and social media nods during the last few months amounting to absolute jack shit would not make any sense... :/

If it is indeed another shot by Kojima at making Silent Hills, I am cautious, but interested. His approach to storytelling is pretty different from Team Silent's, but I'm not going to be picky after all those years, and am looking forward to what he offers. I do want the game to stand on its own plot-wise and not rely on too many celebs tho.

That would be awesome

Imo on Unreal Engine 4 they can reimagine the Game with spectakular visuals

This so much. I don't think Kojima's idea of Silent Hill matches with what Silent Hill really is.

I have very mixed thought on the idea of a reboot because while that would make it easier to judge it on it's own merits and not be so nitpicky, what I really want is to be able to return to that world of 1-3.

So it's pretty much confirmed that something is going on with Silent Hill. If it's on the vein of the first three games I'm totally in. Don't like any of the following ones...

They should do a remake of the first few games first. I hope it’s true. Silent Hill needs to come back.

Maruo visiting the Konami HQ?
I'm starting to think that Konami is bullshitting us and they really have new Silent Hill games in the (Sony's) dockyard.

I thought Konami debunked these rumors. Are rumors still trickling in?
Emre Kaya, who most recently broke the news about WB Games presence at the cancelled E3 2020 hours before Kotaku's Jason Schreier, posted the following tweet the same day the rumors about a Sony-developed Silent Hill game were started by Rely on Horror:


Shortly after Konami US' statement, which DuskGolem also disbelieved, he posted the following comment on reddit:



All of the sources who reported about this rumor are standing their ground and, despite Konami's claims, still believing in what their respective sources told them.

The only thing I can 100% confirm is the SH reboot with Toyama, Ito and Yamaoka. It'll be announced in the next few months.

The mods have verified his information(link):
Stepping in now before it gets derailed:

Staff has verified the information this user has on this subject.

An announcement in the coming months comes as a surprise to me. He's probably referring to the PS5 games presentation that's scheduled for june, according to other rumors.

Honestly when Konami denied the rumors I immediately felt like it was damage control. Especially since there were so many articles and messages saying the rumors were coming from reliable sources. But of course I was really just hoping for the best too.

God I'm so stoked right now.

FUCK. I just posted a rant about getting swept up in this bullshit a month ago.

Don't do this to me! I am weak.

Do you know how long I've been looking for a good quality Robbie the Rabbit plush? You're just gonna drop this comment without a link, huh?


Here's one I found, I fell out of my chair when I saw the price, though

(Why do the affordable ones look like hot garbage?)
