New details and even some screenshots of a new Silent Hill game have reportedly been leaked. There have been rumors of a new Silent Hill game for almost a decade, mostly because we got very close to one shortly after the PlayStation 4’s release. Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima was working on a brand new Silent Hill game and even released a playable teaser called “pt“. At the time, no one knew what it was beyond a free horror game on the PS4. It wasn’t until they finished the scary demo that it was revealed that it was a Hideo Kojima Silent Hill game. Fans were extremely excited , but unfortunately the game was canceled not too long after that and Kojima ended development Metal Gear Solid v and left Konami, leaving many longing for his horror game.
Rumors have surfaced over the years that said Blair witch‘s Bloober Team is working on a new Silent Hill and even PlayStation had taken the iconic IP internally. There were even rumors of an indie game known as Leave was a secret Hideo Kojima Silent Hill game. We still have no idea if any of this is true, though reputable horror game insider Dusk Golem posted a series of tweets with new screenshots from a supposedly new Silent Hill game. The insider also says that this isn’t the only Silent Hill game in development and the shared screenshots appear to be from 2020, so the game might look different. The insider also suggested the game will have “text messages,” something former journalist Alanah Pearce had said would have been in Kojima’s Silent Hill game. At the time, Pearce explained that players would have to sign a waiver and give the game permission to send you real-world text messages. Dusk Golem stated that they have more information they are holding on to for now, so more details could be on the way. It’s hard to make much of it at the moment. Some have stated that the game looks very similar to recent Resident Evil games, which is not surprising as it seems Resident Evil took inspiration from Kojima’s Silent Hill game.
(1/2) Silent Hill leak. There’s a lot I don’t share right now. This is from a relatively new source to me, but I’ve had more than enough evidence to believe them. I will also mention the names “Anita & Maya”, “SMS Messages” and this is not the only SH game in dev. the shots pic.twitter.com/t5MWzNxfFS

Will we ever get a new Silent Hill game or will we have to live with rumors forever? Nobody really knows. Konami has gradually withdrawn from developing AAA games over the past decade, so there’s no telling what its plans are. Many have speculated that Konami is letting outside teams handle its more popular IP, but there hasn’t been any official confirmation of that yet. Bloober Team has officially partnered with Konami, but no one knows which game the developer is working on.
