claim to belong to silent Hill reboot recently surfaced online, and Konami, the owner of the IP, immediately issued a Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) strike.
Known leaker Dusk Golem posted four images, but since Dusk Golem wanted to avoid releasing any spoilers (thanks to PC Gamer), there’s hardly any information to go with them. They did, however, make fun of the “Anita and Maya” name, and something to do with text messaging — a feature previously rumored to be included in the Silent Hill game Hideo Kojima in development before being made by Konami.
The source of the Silent Hill images is “relatively new” to the Twilight Golem, but they say they have provided “enough evidence” to believe them. This obviously isn’t the only Silent Hill game in development either, with leaked images said to be from 2020, so things may have changed during development.
Whether this is a horror game from Bloober Team and Konami is unknown. It was once thought to be a Silent Hill game, which the studio neither confirmed nor denied. All we know is that it’s working on an “existing horror series.”
Of course, Silent Hill games has to work with some studios. Back in December, series composer Akira Yamaoka told Al Hub in an interview on YouTube that they were working on a new project to be announced this summer. Oddly, the channel was asked to remove the video, and without announcing to the world who or which company wanted it removed from the internet so strongly, it complied.
In conclusion, something is wrong with Konami and the Silent Hill IP. Hopefully this means we’ll get some sort of confirmation soon, as it’s been a long time since we received the official main entry for the series, as the last game to release was 2012’s Silent Hill: Downpour.
