Is Kojima Productions working on a new Silent Hill? A tweet from Kojima Productions Twitter account featuring head of communications Aki Saito may have possibly, maybe potentially hinted at a new Silent Hill game. The tweet featured Saito posing at his desk with the caption Sorry to be silent. Everyone, I’ve been really busy lately. I think I can say more soon about what we’re going to. And then it ends there. With some hashtags and a link to another Twitter post. It’s like you can use the hashtag. This finished tweet. So what’s in that tweet that’s getting the internet all riled up? Look at what he said. Sorry to be silent. As in SILENT HILL? It’s possible. The tweet also hinted at something Kojima Productions is working on. But the word ‘silent’ isn’t all. No. Look closer at this image. Zoom and enhance, if you will. Not his face or his clothes, or even the phone he’s talking on. Look at that pencil. Enhance. Enhance. Now, what does it say right at the end where the eraser is? It says pyramid. Pyramid is a brand of pencil, but this Silent Hill theory doesn’t work if we just leave it at that. So I posit that the word pyramid has to be referring to Pyramid Head. That’s right. The iconic villain from the Silent Hill franchise. You know the one, he’s pretty muscular due to the giant sword cleaver thing, whereas a aprin thing or the thing like butchers where to keep guts off of them. He’s got a pyramid head right to that thing. But let’s go back and look at that pencil for a sec, too. Because if you look at what he’s writing says ‘Next Week!’ on that note pad, could there be announcement of some kind of info dropping coming next week? Maybe not enough evidence for you. Well, last month, Hideo Kojima himself tweeted that he was already hard at work on the company’s next project following Death Stranding. Kojima also tweeted that he watched horror movies, specifically the Thai horror film The Eye when making P.T.. So it’s not a stretch to imagine that Kojima Productions’ next game might be in the horror genre. It totally could be. But there’s also a reason to believe this project won’t be a Silent Hill game. After Kojima and Silent Hill IP owner Konami had that falling out in a few years back, let’s call it. It’s unlikely that they’d hand that franchise back to him. Konami is also rumored to be working on some kind of soft reboot of the franchise itself. Kushima could run with the concepts presented in the Silent Hill Games and Peaty demo, but build a brand new IP from those pieces. So do you—the IGN viewers—think there’s anything to these tweets from Kojima Productions, or is the Internet reading into it a little too much?
