Konami initiates DMCA takedown of images claiming to be a reboot of Silent Hill

blank

Images that claim to be from a silent Hill Reboot recently appeared online, and Konami, the owner of the IP, promptly issued a strike under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).

Four images were posted by well known leaker Dusk Golem with little information as Dusk Golem wanted to avoid posting spoilers (thanks PC Gamer). However, they teased the names “Anita and Maya” and something to do with text messaging — a feature previously rumored to be coming to the Silent Hills game that Hideo Kojima was working on before it was canned by Konami.

The source for the Silent Hill images is “relatively new” to Dusk Golem, but they said there was “more than enough evidence” provided to believe them. This isn’t the only Silent Hill game in development apparently either, and the leaked images are said to be from 2020, so things may have changed during the development process.

That DMCA Takedown has been issued to the Dusk Golem Twitter account where the pictures first appeared.

Whether this is the horror game Bloober Team is working on with Konami is unknown. It was once thought to be a Silent Hill game, which the studio neither confirms nor denies. What we do know is that it’s working on an “existing horror franchise.”

Surely a Silent Hill game has to be in the works with a studio. Back in December, series composer Akira Yamaoka explained in an interview with Al Hub on YouTube that they were working on a new project that was set to be announced this summer. Curiously, the channel was asked to remove the video and complied without telling the world who or what company so desperately wanted it off the internet.

All things considered, there is something going on with Konami and the Silent Hill IP. Hopefully this means we’ll get some sort of confirmation soon, as it’s been ages since we’ve received a proper main entry in the series as the last game released was 2012’s Silent Hill: Downpour.
