Konami quickly came outside to squash those rumors, but it seems they won’t die just yet.
A brand new leak has come via the popular ResetERA Gaming forum by a poster named KatharsisT asserting that the reboot of the franchise would be, in reality, still on and might incorporate some of the original Team Silent that developed the first four titles in the franchise, specifically Director Keiichiro Toyama, Illustrator Masahiro Ito and Composer Akira Yamaoka. It will supposedly be a PlayStation 5 exclusive title.
However, take all of this will a grain of salt, as inaccurate information has come from the site before even from”verified” sources. Still, the rumors on this are starting to pile up it feels, and sooner in the afternoon a famed Japanese horror manga artist posted some Silent Hill-associated pictures, which you can read more about through here.
The franchise had several names in the early 2000s, but After the disbanding of Team Silent, Konami attempted multiple Developers and takes before retiring Quiet Hill after 2012’s Silent Hill: Downpour.
