It’s hard to believe but we haven’t had a new Silent Hill in almost eight long years. Thankfully, Konami is about to re-launch the franchise in partnership with Sony.
Back in March, rumours were already circulating about a possible PS5-exclusive Silent Hill.
Better yet, two games were reportedly in development, including the 2015 cancelled episode entitled Silent Hills.
Today, another insider shared some new information on the subject on Twitter. What’s certain is that the saga should make a comeback in the coming months.
A PS5 Exclusive Takes Shape
For example, insider Dusk Golem confirmed on Twitter that a Silent Hill soft reboot is currently being produced at SIE (Sony Interactive Entertainment) Japan Studios.

In addition, Keiichiro Toyama would be in charge of the production and the title would already be playable internally. A demo could be presented shortly after the announcement.
Contrary to previous rumours, these new rumours state that Hideo Kojima is not involved in the development and that the Silent Hills teased with the P.T. demo is no longer on the agenda.
Finally, Sony wouldn’t have bought the rights of the saga from Konami either.
We may learn more about this when the first PS5 games are released in June.
