The official Silent Hill Twitter account has popped up online, fuelling building speculation that a soft reboot for the psychological horror franchise is in the pipeline for PS5. The Silent Hill reboot is said to be in the works at Sony Japan, with a possible reveal due this month.
Silent Hill PS5 Reveal Incoming?
The website is indeed the official deal, as Konami said that any future news about the series would be coming via that Twitter account. It even has the quote from the original Silent Hill intro, ‘The fear of blood tends to create fear for the flesh.’ Lovely!
The Silent Hill reboot has been rumored for months now, but there has been no official announcement from Konami or Sony. Most of the chatter has come via noted horror insider, Dusk Golem, who said that the franchise is ‘100% coming back.’
Konami launched Silent Hill back in 1999 for the PSOne, and quickly established its own unique brand of pant-wetting horror. We haven’t seen a full release in the series since Silent Hill: Downpour in 2012, as the planned Silent Hills reboot was cancelled.
