Rumours

Silent Hill reboot reportedly in development by Bloober Team

Multiple reboots are reported, though unlikely.

Multiple Silent Hill reboots are currently in development, according to a allegations woven together from stories published by GamesIndustry and VGC.

First, GamesIndustry published a story on Bloober Team’s The Medium where Bloober Team CEO suggested a link to an upcoming Silent Hill project.

“We’ve been working for more than a year on another gaming project, another horror IP, and we’re doing this with a very famous gaming publisher,” Bloober Team’s Piotr Babieno told the publication. “I can’t tell you who. I can’t tell you what the project is, but I’m pretty sure when people realize we’re working on it, they will be very excited.”

VGC followed up the story suggesting Babieno was talking about Konani’s famous survival horror franchise, though admitted it was “something our sources were unable to confirm.”

The site continues to say that its own sources did confirm that Konami was approaching developers like Until Dawn‘s Supermassive Games to pitch Silent Hill reboots, suggesting multiple studios may be working on reboots — though by our count, that makes potential developers a total of one, as Supermassive reportedly turned down Konami’s offer.

The facts presented are a bit tenuous, so we wouldn’t suggest getting your hopes up. That said, Silent Hill composer Akira Yamaoka is adding fuel to speculative fire by teasing his next project was “the one you’ve been hoping to hear about.” Yamaoka made the claim on a video interview with AI Hub, which was later pulled down at the request of… well, someone. Konami denies making the request and the YouTube channel itself won’t name who did for some reason.

We’ll let you know if (when?) a new Silent Hill game is actually announced.
