Konami Flattens Claims On Recent Silent Hill Rumors

This past week surely has come to be one energetic instance for the gaming sphere of things. This past Friday, both Animal Crossing: New Horizons alongside Doom Eternal released the same day. But the most eye-grabbing detail comes from alleged rumors that suggest the potential revival of the Konami-owned Silent Hill franchise and resurrection of the late-Silent Hills project from Hideo Kojima.

Last Sunday, the rumor resurfaced from an alleged employee who works at Konami that disclosed Sony holds ambitions to acquire the property from the company. The claim mentions the already leaked Silent Hill reboot alongside unnamed episodic title, which was then told to be Silent Hills. Even more, it was also told that Sony was eyeing to also purchase Metal Gear and Castlevania with their own respected reboots also.

However, despite the anticipation that brewed online for the diehard fans, this happened to be one wild goose chase as Konami this week has denounced the claims made. According to a North American PR representative for Konami who spoke with Rely on Horror, the outlet that initially reported the claim, condemns the current rumors to be “not true.”

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.

Despite the unfortunate news that the spokesperson revealed in the email, they do, however, shed light on the possibility of a potential return to the franchise. But, they do clarify that it will not be to the terms of what was referenced in the alleged claims. “It’s not to say we are completely closing the door on the franchise, just not in the way it is being reported.”

Although there is official clarification on the previous rumors being false, the PR figure does suggest that the Konami as a whole might return to the series in the future. As for when or where – that will be left for time to reveal until then. Additionally, the claims that told of Sony’s involvement can also be discarded for now since Konami flattened the chances of the rumor’s fruition.

Do you think a new Silent Hill is in order or something similar to a reboot that the previous rumors suggest?
