I feel we've been here before, several times - but why not do the dance once again, in the hope that something, anything, actually comes of it. It's been reported at Gamerant that the scrapped Silent Hills, teased so expertly by the PS4-exclusive underwear-stainer P.T., could yet come to PlayStation 5.
And if this sounds familiar, well, we're definitely reported on this possibility before. In March 2020, for example. We've also written about an unconfirmed new Silent Hill game being revealed sometime in 2020, as a PlayStation 5 exclusive. So do forgive us if we take this new - or not-so-new - rumour with just a dash of salt. We're fans of Konami's horror series too, and we don't want to get our hopes up too much regarding its revival.
Anyway, the Gamerant report quotes someone called 'Moore's Law Is Dead', a YouTuber who in the past predicted that 2018's God of War would get a sequel (I mean, duh?). The YouTuber reckons they can "almost confirm" the existence of the Kojima Productions-developed Silent Hills as a PS5 exclusive - and that the game will be revealed as part of The Game Awards on December 11th.
We all know that the main man at Kojima Productions, Metal Gear series creator Hideo Kojima, is good friends with The Game Awards' founder and producer Geoff Keighley, so there's no doubt whatsoever that if a Silent Hills reveal is coming, December 11th seems as good a time as any. Originally, the horror game was a co-directed project, with Kojima working alongside movie-maker Guillermo del Toro, so it'll be interesting to see if he's still attached to the game - assuming it happens at all.
The same rumour-slinger, ol' Moore's Law there, adds in the Gamerant report - which lifts its information from a podcast, Broken Silicon - that a Bluepoint Games remake of another Konami game, Metal Gear Solid, is also in the works. Now that's one we've heard about before, too. And with Bluepoint's excellent Demon's Souls remake out now on PlayStation 5 (our review, here), MGS could well be the studio's next big project.
Apparently, the Metal Gear Solid remake's been in the works for a while, too - since 2017, and with cooperation from the PS5's system architect Mark Cerny, no less. Whether that's true or not, what's a fact is that the original Metal Gear Solid is a PlayStation classic (number one on our recent anniversary ranking!) that I very much doubt Sony will want to fudge a remake of, so they're going to make extra sure such a release is every bit as amazing as it can be, on their new hardware.
