It’s been a long time since anyone has heard anything about Silent Hill. After a disagreement with Metal Gear Solid producer Hideo Kojima in 2014, Konami shelved the highly anticipated sequel Silent Hills (made famous by the now legendary P.T. demo), almost turning the important horror franchise over to Kojima. For more than six years, this has put the franchise’s future in peril. Now, recent rumours claim that Konami is planning a Silent Hill soft reboot, but this could just be a myth or fan fiction. Let’s have a look. This is all we know about Silent Hill: Reboot so far.
When will the Silent Hill reboot be released?
We don’t have a current release date for the next Silent Hill game because Konami hasn’t verified that it’s in development. Konami aims to show off many Silent Hill projects at trade fairs like E3 next year, according to Video Games Chronicle. Konami supposedly planned to release details during E3 2021, but difficulties have thwarted such ambitions.
Akira Yamaoka, the series’ longtime composer, may have proven this. Yamaoka expressed his aspirations for a new project in the summer of 2021 in a YouTube interview from February 2021. He said of the project, “I guess this is what you expect to hear,” though he didn’t specifically specify Silent Hill.
An unidentified source requested that the interview be taken down as soon as possible. The corporation is not behind the request, according to a source within Konami VGC.
Perhaps the reboot is not far off if the team behind the new and improved Silent Hill is planning a comeback in the Summer 2021 announcement. In 2022 or 2023, a new Silent Hill game could be released.
What is the plot of the Silent Hill reboot?
The story’s full details are unknown at this time. According to a 2020 report by leaker Dusk Golem, the project is a “soft reboot” that will keep many of the original’s characteristics. This should allow both longtime HillHeads and newcomers to enjoy the game.
Resident Evil 7 did a similar hat trick by introducing protagonist Ethan Winters while keeping a few old cast members like Chris Redfield involved in the story.
Perhaps the revival of Silent Hill will centre on similar renowned characters. Pyramid Head and Cheryl Mason were included as playable characters in Dead By Daylight in 2020, indicating that they are the series’ most known characters and good contenders for a prospective reboot.
Longtime serial composer Akira Yamaoka may have confirmed this. Yamaoka suggested that a new project would be launched in the summer of 2021 in a YouTube interview in February 2021. He defined the project as “what you expect to hear about,” though he didn’t specifically reference Silent Hill.
Shortly after, an unnamed entity requested that the interview be removed. VGC, according to a Konami source, does not support the request.
The restart may not be far off if the team behind the new and improved Silent Hill planned their announcement for the summer of 2021. A new Silent Hill game could be released as early as 2022 or 2023.

Who is developing the game, according to rumours?
While nothing has been confirmed as of yet, speculations about a Silent Hill relaunch featuring two main game creators and Konami as publisher have surfaced. Sony is supporting a Silent Hill game made by Kojima Productions, according to Gematsu. Shepshal Nick and Sony leaker Millie A later refuted this claim.
Despite the fact that Kojima hasn’t replied to the reports, several of his Twitter followers thought that his reading habits could be a clue. Kojima was reading Karen Slaughter’s The Silent Wife and Joe Hill’s Full Throttle, according to his social media posts from June 2021. The relationship between Konami and Kojima is unstable at best at this time, and the two have a history of feuding.
Is There A Silent Hill Trailer?
Konami hasn’t produced a Silent Hill Reboot trailer because the game hasn’t been formally revealed. Expect a brief teaser and possibly a logo, with little to no actual gameplay, if and when the reboot occurs.
