Dusk Golem Clarifies His Silent Hill Statement

As it pertains to any rumors surrounding a new Silent Hill game, I’ve opted for the wait and see approach. What we know is Konami is developing a new game in the Silent Hill franchise that sees Masahiro Ito returning in a key position.

Nothing beyond that can be confirmed and even more, has been disproven. When inside Dusk Golem initially discussed a new Silent Hill game being in development, I noted that part of his posting was highly skeptical. Chiefly because Konami themselves have denied rumors of them working with Sony to develop a new game.

“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.”

“It’s not to say we are completely closing the door on the franchise, just not in the way it is being reported.”

Dusk Golem via twitter has provided clarification of his original statement, but again it is merely a repeat of the originally dismissed rumor. Leaving the probability of it being true to be fairly slim. On the other hand, if Konami is lying about a partnership with Sony it would scarcely be the first time a video game company denied rumors leading up to an announcement confirming said rumors.

Take what you read with a grain of salt. Within the next few months we’ll find out during Sony’s presentations whether or not the rumors are true.

(1/5) Just to clear up some things about Silent Hill PS5, from what I know.

100% things:

-In 2018 Konami shopped around with different studios for two pitches to fund development of a reboot & an episodic Silent Hill game. I knew this from a personal friend & an email from from

(2/5) someone seperately. Neither got the job, but I know this as fact.

-In late 2019, a seperate close friend in Japan informed me a Silent Hill game was being developed in Japan that had started dev at the start of 2019.

I started doing some personal investigation from this,

(3/5) A lot of dead ends, but others collaborated this & I did learn about something else which helped later, but promised not to talk about it.

I seperate this part of the story as all of that is stuff I can 100% verify. The rest I believe & have been shown solid evidence, but

(4/6) the following I have evidence to believe, but I can’t verify the details (but it is from someone who would know & I verified their identity).

So to lay the detaila of this put straight:

-It is developed by Sony Japan Studios & will be PS5 exclusive.

-Toyama is directing,

(5/6) Akira Yaomoka is composing, Masahiro Ito is doing art, various Siren/Gravity Rush devs & some others working on it.

-This has nothing to do with Kojima or Silent Hills, that probably is not happening.

-Sony is NOT buying IPs, that’s bullshit.

-The game is NOT a remake, it

(6/6) is a soft reboot, made so it can be someone’s first SH game.

-The game is playable & has a demo that will be shown around after reveal.

-The details of this are not murky, there should be no miscommunication.

Just to lay that all out, if all true (I believe it though).
