Alleged images of a new Silent Hill game leaked on Thursday and were quickly taken offline over a copyright claim by publisher Konami, according to a series of tweets from a respected horror game leaker Dusk Golem on Twitter. While these images have been removed from Twitter, they have circulated around the internet, offering an unconfirmed glimpse of a new Silent Hill project – reportedly one of several games in development.
So far, five images of the unnamed Silent Hill project have been leaked, including what appears to be a screenshot of a dirty, garbage-filled apartment; a close-up of a woman’s face stylized to look like torn paper; a screenshot with text that appears to be an email containing information about a child neglect investigation; and a screenshot and artwork of a hallway covered in sticky notes with a humanoid character covered in what appear to be flower petals. The artwork for this latter scene features the signature of Masahiro Ito, the veteran creature designer for the Silent Hill franchise who created the iconic Pyramid Head character.
Dusk Golem said the images of the rumored Silent Hill game are from 2020. Dusk Golem gave some hints about its narrative, naming two characters (Anita and Maya) and hinting that text messages would somehow flow into the game. They also reiterated that this Silent Hill project is not the only game in the series that is in development.
The leaked images are also rumored to be from the game behind Bloober Team, the developer behind it The medium, observerand layers of fearcreated as part of its previously announced partnership with Konami.
Polygon has reached out to Konami for comment on the leak to verify its authenticity. We’ll update this story when the company responds.
