Recent photos of a Silent Hill reboot were posted online, and Konami, the owner of the IP, promptly issued a digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) strike.
Dusk Golem, a known leaker, posted four images with little information to go along with them, stating that the names "Anita and Maya" and something to do with SMS messages, according to the PC Gamer. A feature previously rumored to be included in the Silent Hills game Hideo Kojima was later removed.
Dusk Golem''s source for Silent Hill images is "relatively new," but they said "more than enough proof" was provided to believe them. This is apparently not the only Silent Hill game in development yet, and the leaked images are expected to be from 2020, thus things might have changed during the development process.
Dusk Golem''s Twitter account was taken down for the DMCA takedown.
The scope of the horror game Bloober Team is unknown. It was one time thought to be a Silent Hill game, which the studio was neither confirmed nor denied. What we do know is that it is working on a "existing horror franchise."
Surely a Silent Hill game must be in the works with a studio. In December, comedian Akira Yamaoka stated in an interview with Al Hub that they were working on a new program that would be announced this summer. Strangely enough, the channel was asked to remove the video and it complied without revealing to the world who or what company wanted it off the internet so badly.
Everything is up with Konami and the Silent Hill IP. This means we will get some sort of confirmation soon as it''s been ages since we received a proper main entry in the series as the last game to be released was Silent Hill: Downpour in 2012.
