Konami Denies Silent Hills Revival Rumors

Konami US representative says that recent claims of a Silent Hill revival "are not true."


Back in 2015, Konami cancelled Hideo Kojima's Silent Hills, a much-anticipated reboot to the cult horror series. In recent weeks, rumors of a new Silent Hill game--or a restart to development on Silent Hills--have swirled around certain online gaming spaces, with some even analyzing Kojima's tweets for cheeky hints. Well, before you start hanging your Pyramid Head flag from your porch again, you might want to wait a bit, because a Konami US representative has flatly denied the rumors.

“We’re aware of all the rumors and reports but can confirm that they are not true. I know it’s not the answer your fans may want to hear,” said the Konami US rep.

Though Rely On Horror--the site that's reported on many of these rumors--notes that they specifically involved Konami Japan, not Konami US, it's unclear to what extent that matters. Then again, if secret talks are indeed currently in progress, it's not exactly surprising that a PR person would deny them.

Even though Silent Hills may never emerge, its famous demo PT remains one of the most celebrated examples of video game horror, and it's still finding new ways to scare us today. Intrepid YouTuber and video game hacker Lance McDonald recently revealed some unseen behavior of one of PT's enemies, which is sure to haunt your dreams.
