Silent Hill leaks suggest Sony is working on reviving horror games

After many years in the shadows, it seems like Silent Hill might finally be getting a new game as some leaked screenshots and details of the game have been copyrighted, fueling reports that the iconic horror franchise is set to return with Sony by its side.

The failed Silent Hills/PT project was disappointing to so many longtime fans of the series who have been desperately waiting for the horror icon to finally return. It’s been a full 10 years since the last full entry in the Silent Hill franchise, and many feel a new game is overdue.

Rumors and suggestions of a sequel or reboot have been flirted with for years, but for the first time in a long while, there may finally be some hope.

Sony Helps Silent Hill Return?

As one of the pioneers of the horror genre, Silent Hill terrified players for years with its atmospheric and claustrophobic locations. His shift in direction toward combat alienated many players in the game’s later years, but still managed to retain many of his core fears.

But according to reputable leaker Dusk Golem, a new Silent Hill game appears to be in the works now:

“Silent Hill Leak. There’s a lot I don’t share right now. This is from a relatively new source to me, but I’ve had more than enough evidence to believe them. I will also mention the names “Anita & Maya”, “Text Messages” and this is not the only SH game in development. The shots…”

A second tweet continued: “…are a bit dated, from 2020, so maybe this project looks a little different now. but [this is] what i share I know many will doubt this, but I have plenty of private evidence to prove this is real and as always, I continue to await the Silent Hill game reveal.”

Below the message was originally a series of screenshots that were leaked from the project and have now been removed due to a copyright claim, which is odd.

The leaker, also known as AestheticGamer, was called out about the alleged leak, to which they responded, “I promise you every Silent Hill leak I’ve told you about is 100% true.”

Things get even more interesting as not long after these tweets, the Dusk Golem Twitter account for the leaked images of Silent Hill was DMCA certified. In response, “they deleted the leftover picture just to avoid banning my account”.

As if all of this wasn’t enough, another well-respected insider named Okami Games chimed in, telling his followers: “Screenshots and details of Silent Hill have been leaked and appear to be real. Sony is reportedly involved in the project and it is being developed by multiple studios. I won’t post the screenshots, but here is a summary of the information.”

What followed were even more details shared by Dusk Golem elsewhere and them outlined some important details about the project:

  • Sony is reportedly involvedbut from Dusk’s previous tweets it might just be marketing rights.”
  • “Screenshots are from a 2020 build”
  • “Supposedly Masahiro Ito is involved in the project” (an artist who has worked on several Silent Hill games)
  • “Dusk seemed to imply that it is possible that this game has already been/will be preserved and is not safe (red flag)”

That’s a lot of information and all the different factors involved make it hard to tell if the game is still in the works. Given the sensitivity of the leaks and the DMCA warnings, there’s every chance Konami could address all of this sooner rather than later.
