Konami and Hideo Kojima Rumored to Work on Silent Hills Reboot

Recent rumors suggest that Hideo Kojima and Konami will team up to revive Silent Hill franchise through a reboot.

When a massive dispute between Hideo Kojima and developer/publisher Konami has led to the former to leave company back in 2015, an attempted reboot of fan-favorite Silent Hill survival horror series was being shelved for good.

Earlier this year, there was a rumor of Konami working on two new titles from their iconic series. A latest rumor suggests that Sony is apparently trying to revive Silent Hills for PlayStation 5 console with Kojima and Konami on board.

Shortly after Kojima's departure, Komani has cancelled his ambitious project and removed its demo titled P.T. ("playable teaser") from PlayStation Store and even after five years of its cancellation, fans are still clamoring to bring it back.

After seeking out various developer studios to get a pitch, Konami ended up settling for two new Silent Hill games. One of them is a series reboot and another will be more in episodic format like most titles from Telltale Games.

Having a track record for trustworthy sources, Twitter user Aesthetic Gamer has posted the following lately.

One source states that creature designer Masahiro Ito of original series is currently working on one of those new game. 1999 Silent Hill director and writer, Keiichiro Toyama along with composer Akira Yamaoka is also reportedly returning.

Rumor has it that, this trio is assembled by SIE Japan Studio for a soft reboot of the franchise, joining up with development team of Project Siren, a group that previously worked on 2008 PlayStation 3 horror game Siren: Blood Curse.

For a rumored second game, Sony is interested to re-launch Kojima's canceled title in anticipation of upcoming next-gen release as a PS5-exclusive by having Konami own the IPs and let Kojima Productions continue its development.

Given past history between Metal Gear series creator and its Japanese publisher, it seems quite impossible for any collaboration among them but Sony has stepped in to build a bridge to patch things up for a series reboot of Silent Hill.

If Sony can somehow manage to make two new Silent Hill games as PlayStation 5-exclusive, they can be a driving force to sell more consoles. There are plans to include VR support to promote next-gen PlayStation VR device as well.

An immense fan-demand for scrapped Silent Hills game has forced Sony to seriously rethink its revival. Although it took years for Konami to get Silent Hill series back in track, fans would finally see Kojima making the scariest horror game.
