Ignoring the PlayStation 5 rumours for a few seconds, we don't think we've come across a leak we've wanted to be true more than this one. According to a very reliable Resident Evil leaker, Konami has plans to bring back the Silent Hill franchise with a soft reboot and another title to accompany it which draws inspiration from Telltale's episodic efforts and Until Dawn.
Tweeted out by AestheticGamer on Twitter and reported on by Rely on Horror, the leaker claims that the Japanese publisher reached out to numerous developers roughly two years ago in search of pitch ideas for the series. One is designed to be a "soft-reboot of the franchise, the other an episodic TellTale/Until Dawn-style game to go alongside the reboot."
Now, we implore you not to take these tweets as gospel, but the Twitter account in question has been known to leak very reliable information in the past. AestheticGamer revealed the existence of Resident Evil 3 all the way back in December 2018 and stated just three months later that the remake is coming a lot sooner than people think and isn't developed by Capcom's Division 1 team. All three of these key details have proven to be true upon the game's announcement, but of course, Resident Evil and Silent Hill are two different franchises developed by two different studios.
It's clear that the leaker in question certainly has come credibility, although we wouldn't suggest you get too hyped up just yet. They claim that there's a high chance at least one of the project will be announced this year, and by our own reckoning, it'll most likely be for PS5. Do you hope Silent Hill returns?
