Looks like Sony is working to rebuild the relationship between Kojima and Konami to bring Silent Hills back.

Japan Studio is also rumored to be working on a soft reboot as well.

There were also recent rumors of Norman Reedus in negotiations for another Kojima game.

Sources apparently have a good track record.

Would be fucking sweet if true! Hopefully Konami will also put P.T. back on the PlayStation store for those who didn’t get a chance to play it.

They should just forget kojima, just pay someone to finish the game, make it an exclusive, and boom, you have another weapon against the competition. If it would be as good as the first 2 silent hills, or even resident evil 7, that would be a huge reason for me to get a ps5 instead of a PC.



Should probably source the actual source and not pushsquare

So basically there are 2 titles;

1) Has been in development that is a more traditional title. The fact that Toyama (SH and Siren) from Sony is working on it indicates it will be an exclusive.


2) The 2nd has not been put into development yet, should involve Kojima and be a TellTales title that utilizes VR.

If true, both would be a good get from Sony.



I know it's almost impossible but it would be cool if Sony got the IP. I know it would suck for some since they would mostly make the games exclusives, but at least they would do something with Silent Hill unlike Konami which haven't cared about it for years.

If this rumour pans out it means that Konami are in fact doing something with the IP.

I knew it! We recently had a thread about rumors about Kojima wanting to work Konami + high level execs leaving Kojima Productions after Death Stranding. The fallout was because Kojima wanted to patch things up enough from Konami to work on Silent Hill AND eventually Metal Gear and those guys wernt having it. Not surprised at all. Not even a tiny bit.



Forget Kojima. Would just drive up the budget and slap in meaningless pretentiousness. Team Silent put actual meaning into those games. Keep the budget modest but still churn out something great.



Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

Why? Shows just how ready Sony is to jump into bed with the devil just for a couple of brand recognition points. Make a new IP or let it die.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Me: I'm torn between wanting Silent Hill resurrected by the hands of Team Siren/Toyama, and just continuing Silent Hills with Kojima Productions.

Sony: How about both?

I think it's safe to say that at least one of them is happening, but both?!! That's crazy.



I am amazed that this Kojima dude is still able to work. His games are mostly mediocre sellers, and he spends tons of money and takes tons of time to get them there. He has been involved in a few big hits, so I guess that's enough to secure a place in the industry forever.
