Last week, a number of rumours got out about the possible revival of the Silent Hill franchise with reports of a soft reboot and an Until Dawn-style title in the works. Those projects haven't been confirmed to actually be a thing just yet, although publisher Konami has now spoken out on the subject -- teasing that the series' return could actually be on the cards. You can consider us intrigued to say the least.
Speaking with PC GamesN, a Konami representative said: "We cannot share anything at this point, but we are listening to customer feedback and considering ways to provide the next title." It's a fairly surprising response where the Japanese studio doesn't kill the rumours where they stand -- instead offering fans hope that there may actually be some truth to the speculation.
If the two games do actually come to fruition then they'll most likely be on PlayStation 5, an assumption which excites us rather a lot. The return of survival horror on Sony's next-generation console? Count us in. Do you hope Silent Hill makes its return in the next couple of years? Avoid Pyramid Head in the comments below.
Well, sure could be good. Dunno how they’d pull it off, though. Can’t just slap the name on the box and expect it to be a good game!
I’d love a new Silent Hill but I can’t trust Konami to make it good. It would be far better if they outsourced it to another company unless they can revive Team Silent.
Although I personally don't have much of an interest in Silent Hill as I am not too into horror games I would definitely like the series to return, although with the Konami we are all familiar with today you have to wonder what form a new game would take, and if it is even something we want to happen.
Just do a VR tour of their game development offices. That should be scary enough.
It's konami so it will be crap and riddled with micro transactions , also will be a insult to the silent hill name.
Are you kidding Konami?? Look at what Capcom has done with resident evil. Stop considering and make it happen
inb4 it ends up being a online only rehash no one wanted.
(metal gear survive ring any bells?)
@kyleforrester87 if it's good to you when they show footage of it in the future
inb4 it's revealed to be...
A) A pachinko game
B) A mobile game
C) A console game, but being developed by some random Western developer who isn't properly equipped to produce a classic survival horror game.
Just don't release any teasers/prologues/prototypes. Those crush the most hopes.
sell the rights please
Not only would it be expected to live up to the standard of the early games, there's also the 'what could have been' of PT hovering in the background.
@Undeadlogan is that a question or..?
Do Konami even still employ people who know how to make video games?
Wait, that quote doesn't 'confirm' anything?
(The context is very vague)
I never played the originals somehow i managed to skip them, did try silent hill collection on ps now, but the controls were too much put it off after 5min also wasnt really in the mood so might try again. But would love a reboot or even a proper remaster of them
All this hype just for Konami to announce at E3 "Silent Hill Battle Royale"
@carlos82 They do, and they're hiring.
Someone wanted it ,we all remember that 8/10 review from.this site!
The scariest word in that headline is Konami.
@suikoden still don't know how it got that score.
A lazy rehash with all the same assets,a zombie focus that was meant to add a fresh feel to the game but done in a way that it does not make sense at all in the series.
plus the Awfull MTX that dared to ask 5 bucks for a save slot!
That last point should be enough to throw the game in the bin.
@JJ2 It confirms exactly what the headline states. "We are listening to customer feedback and considering ways to provide the next title."
@jdv95 To be honest, the game could have been worse. I agree it shouldn't deserve an 8 but I also don't think the game is THAT bad. Still played far worse games.
I don’t know, I don’t think they’ve shown they can make a good game lately. The chances of it not getting messed up are very low. We’ll also have to let go of PT for this
I dunno man they don't seem to know how to make a silent hill game if the last decade is any indication. I mean remember when the HD collection used comic sans as a font on signs?
Where the heck is @playstation1995 ?

@kyleforrester87 do you see an question mark?
@Undeadlogan do you see an doctor?
@Averagewriter except MG Survive was actually a decent game all things considered, it never had a chance though, did it?
@Averagewriter It wasn't a let down though, people had low expectations immediately and it actually ended up being a better game than people thought it would be. My point is, Konami have their work cut out for them even before announcing a new SH game, and that's not necessarily fair.
@Averagewriter I hear you but they’d be throwing away a hell of a selling point in the process and it’s just not something you’d expect a company like Konami to do. That doesn’t make them evil, but creativity/commercial balance is probably leaning less toward the creative side of things during their business meetings..
@kyleforrester87 did you see your father naked?
