The official Silent Hill Twitter account was recently created amid rumors of an impending soft reboot.
In recent months, there have been several rumors that Konami wanted to restart the Silent Hill series with a soft reboot simply titled ‘Silent Hill’. The title is said to be more of a reintroduction of the series, allowing both new and returning players to enjoy the game without having to be aware of past events.
According to horror enthusiast and insider Dusk Golem, the new episode would be unveiled at Sony’s PS5 event in June.
“To talk about a remake or new entry and stuff, I’ve heard from pretty much everyone who knows about the title that this is a soft reboot, which many say is a lot of the series anyway, but this time they’re a go a little further, ”wrote the insider. “While they are in development they are thinking of calling the game” Silent Hill “it will have no numbers or anything so it will easily be the first entry in the series. It is not a remake and it knew earlier games don’t, but none of that is really important for this game. ”
Unfortunately, there was no mention of a new Silent Hill at all. Two months later, and there seems to be some sort of official activity around Silent Hill. As confirmed a few days ago by publisher Konami, the recently created Silent Hill Twitter account is the real deal.

“We’re sorry we turned on people,” Konami’s Twitter account wrote. “Anything official would first come from @SilentHill or an event or something, not ours. We were just fans and enjoyed the noise / memories. Sorry everyone, I wanted to kill your Friday vote. ‘
As expected, the creation of the new Silent Hill account has answered recent rumors of a new Silent Hill for Sony’s PS5, and after more rumors of a new PS5 event in August, fans now expect the new episode to be announced later this month.
We can only hope that the newly created Silent Hill Twitter account is related to a new episode. As always, we will keep you informed.
