Is Kojima Productions Working On A Silent Hill Game?

Masahiro Ito, the former artist of many Silent Hill games, has written several tweets that could point to it.

Let’s roll the thing back by a day: Kojima Productions, or at least their head of communications, Aki Saito, sent this tweet, excusing himself for being silent. Silent, you say? That sounds like a hint at Silent Hill, which is underlined by him using a Pyramid brand pencil. Guess who’s a character in Silent Hill 2. It’s Pyramid Head – see the image below. And what did Saito wrote on his paper? „Next week!”

Let’s remember what happened in 2015: Hideo Kojima has left Konami, and his departure didn’t seem to be the best. It was felt in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (which was effectively unfinished…), and the Japanese publisher has also binned his Silent Hills project, whose protagonist, Norman Reedus, together with Guillermo del Toro, joined Kojima to work on Death Stranding. So the situation seems to be weird: did both parties come to peaceful terms? Would it be ONE of the two Silent Hill projects by Konami? (We recently wrote about that – the other one is rumoured to be an episodic project.)

Let’s take a look at Masahiro Ito’s tweets, both published on February 28 (or February 29 in his time zone). The first one says „This tweet means that I have nothing to tweet. If it goes well, I will have nothing to tweet tomorrow.” Ooookay… the second one roughly two hours later simply said „Pyramid Head, R.I.P.” And the third one is from late August 2017, regarding Akira Yamaoka, the excellent composer behind Silent Hill, showing interest in reforming Team Silent: „If it’s not [a] sequel and I don’t have to use Pyramid Head or can kill him in the opening, I’ll have no qualms about joining it.”

So according to the new tweet, Pyramid Head is gone, meaning he would be interested in working on a new Silent Hill game. Does this make sense now? Let’s hope so. So Kojima Productions could announce something next week – if they indeed work on Konami’s IP, it would be a major surprise!
