Rumors about the next chapter in the Silent Hill franchise have gathered steam overnight after a series of images were leaked by respected insider Dusk Golem on Twitter.
However, the images were quickly removed as Dusk Golem was hit by a copyright claim (from Konami, perhaps?), which resulted in their account being temporarily disabled. It’s back up now, but the image are obviously not available anymore.
This definitely lends the leaked images some level of authenticity, as the ‘copyright holder’ wouldn’t go to the trouble of asking them to be removed if they weren’t the real deal. Even so, take it with a pinch of salt before.
According to Dusk Golem, the image were from an older version of the new Silent Hill game that date back to 2020, and he insists that this isn’t the only entry in the series in development. You can still view them online, but we’re not going to link to them in case we get our wrists slapped too.
Silent Hill hasn’t been seen since 2012’s Silent Hill: Downpour, with Kojima Productions’ planned Silent Hills reboot ended being cancelled.
As mentioned, rumors have been rampant for a while now that Konami is looking to resurrect the series. Sources close to VGC have claimed that multiple entries in the franchise are in the works, a rumor that was also corroborated by Gematsu a few days later.
Will we ever see a new Silent Hill game? Right now it’s looking likely something is happening, but we’re still have to play the waiting game for the time being.
