It looks like recent rumblings about a potential reboot of the Silent Hill franchise at Konami may not come to fruition. A Konami spokesperson has stated that recent Silent Hill rumors are "not true."
Speaking to Rely On Horror, the site that originally published a report of the potential dual-reboot of Silent Hill, a spokesperson for Konami denied recent rumors.
"We're aware of all the rumors and reports but can confirm they are not true," the spokesperson told Rely On Horror. "I know it's not the answer your fans may want to hear."
A potential reboot of the Silent Hill franchise, as well as a revival of the canceled Silent Hills project from Hideo Kojima, has been rumored for some time. The series has been in a state of limbo since the abrupt cancellation of Silent Hills and the de-listing of P.T., the playable teaser for Kojima's game.
"It's not to say we are completely closing the door on the franchise," the Konami spokesperson told Rely On Horror. "Just not in the way it is being reported."
Whether this means potential down the line or not for the Silent Hill franchise, it's probably good to not get your hopes too high. There hasn't been a new mainline Silent Hill game since 2012's Silent Hill: Downpour, and it's even been six years since P.T. surprised us all.
Meanwhile, Hideo Kojima and Norman Reedus are rumored to be in talks for more work together. While likely unrelated to Silent Hills, that's at least good news for Death Stranding fans.
