Silent Hill PS5 PlayStation 5

Silent Hill revival rumours refuse to die, after a relatively new social media account has reignited hopes that the survival horror franchise is poised to make a return. You may recall there were strong rumours earlier in the year that Sony was plotting a new entry in the property for the PlayStation 5, with development being led by Japan Studio, but the speculation never really panned out.

That said, there had been lingering hope that an announcement may be made during a rumoured State of Play in August, which will purportedly take place any day now. A new Twitter page named Silent Hill Official has poured fuel on that fire, as it’s only been posting since the beginning of July. While there’s some debate over its authenticity, it was mentioned by the official Konami account recently.

In fact, after tweeting about the brand’s recent Dead by Daylight crossover, the Japanese publisher told fans the following: “We are sorry we got people fired up. Anything official would come first from @SilentHill or an event or something, not from us.” An event like State of Play, mayhaps? We’re still not quite buying into these rumours, but you know what they say: there’s no blood without Pyrami—or something like that anyway!
