Guillermo Del Toro Teases Silent Hill Return

Konami | Kojima Productions

Oh hey, look. There's another Silent Hill rumour to get you all excited, only for someone to pull the rug from underneath you. This time, it's horror hound Guillermo del Toro getting out hopes up just in time for Christmas.

While the fires under Silent Hill were distinguished in 2012, the series nearly made a return to form with del Toro and Hideo Kojima's mythical Silent Hills. Both abandoned the project after the P.T. playable teaser and went on to work on Death Stranding, but was this really the end?

What Has Guillermo Del Toro Said About Silent Hill?

Speaking at The Game Awards, Guillermo del Toro said, "You know, one franchise I love the art direction in, Silent Hill. I hope we get a new one of those." A cryptic del Toro then shrugged knowingly, which has led gamers to think he could be back on the project.

If that wasn't enough to keep you guessing, del Toro was introduced by Kojima himself when presenting the award for Best Art Direction. It's a massive leap to assume this dynamic duo are back and working on Silent Hills again, however, remember that Kojima recently teased a reunion with Norman Reedus on something mysterious.

Many think Kojima is working on a Death Stranding sequel or some kind of live-action outing to go with his new TV and movie studio. That's all well and good, but it wasn't long ago that Reedus himself gave a sinister tease of something related to Silent Hill when he posted Robbie the Rabbit.

Will We See Another Silent Hill?

We're fully expecting Silent Hill to return someday, but the question of when is a little harder to answer. Throughout 2021, we've heard reports of multiple games in the works, with everything from a Konami resurrection to the return of Kojima doing the rounds.

Sadly, we recently covered how the upcoming release of Bokeh Game Studio's Slitterhead has probably scuppered our plans (for now). With Silent Hill creator Keiichiro Toyama and composer Akira Yamaoka, a lot of the OG team has moved away from this tormented town.

It's likely that the public split of Kojima from Konami has played a big part in Silent Hills' development hell. Later entries in the series were a far cry from the highs of Silent Hill 2, and some lacklustre live-action movies won't have helped. Still, it's amazing that six years after P.T. had the plug pulled, we're still talking about what could've been. 

Given del Toro's work on everything from Hellboy to Pan's Labyrinth, we know he has the imagination to pull off a Silent Hill game. There was nothing wrong with Death Standing, but come on, isn't it about time we slipped into something a little more uncomfortable and gave Silent Hill the return it deserves?
