Rumor: Konami May Be Working on Silent Hill Titles After Approaching Developers
A reliable leaker has revealed information that could mean that Konami is working on at least two new Silent Hill titles.
According to a reliable leaker, Konami may be working on two new Silent Hill installments, with one being a “soft reboot” and the other being an “episodic TellTale/Until Dawn-style game.”
Eurogamer reported that AestheticGamer, who has been known for accurate leaks surrounding Capcom in the past, has revealed that Konami may have two productions in the works. AestheticGamer, after talking about Resident Evil leaks says, “Konami about two years ago reached out to various developers to pitch ideas for two Silent Hill games”
They mention that the one game is apparently to be a “soft reboot” while the other is to be an episodic style title similar to how the TellTale Games titles work and is to “go alongside the reboot”. They clarify that that’s all they know surrounding the rumor, but estimates that there’s “a high chance one or both of those titles may be revealed this year”
“I don’t actually know their plans or anything about these games other than their existence though, I don’t know much about the inner workings of Konami,” AestheticGamer confirms.
franchise, the other an episodic TellTale/Until Dawn-style game to go alongside the reboot. I don’t know anything more than that though, but I sure do hope Konami’s given it the appropriate budget and found the right developer to make those games succeed.

This is just a guess, but I’d say there’s a high chance one or both of those titles may be revealed this year, but we’ll see. I don’t actually know their plans or anything about these games other than their existence though, I don’t know much about the inner workings of Konami.

Earlier this month, we saw Masahiro Ito, known for his work in the Silent Hill series tease that he’s working on a new title and joked that he hopes the title won’t get canceled this time, referencing canceled Konami projects. Masahiro Ito is working freelance, which means this project might not even be linked to Silent Hill, but the joke kind of points to the possibility it is indeed a Konami production.
As always with leaks, take things with a pinch of salt until official confirmation has been revealed. It’s certainly an exciting rumor, to say the least.
