As rumors continue to swirl regarding a new Silent Hill sequel being in the works, Konami has pointed people to a newly created Twitter account.
The publisher got itself in trouble over the weekend after talking about Silent Hill on Twitter, to the extent that it had to squash some of the fanfare that was building from the company's uncharacteristic acknowledgment of one of its most beloved IPs.
After sharing a video of the series' signature siren which blares throughout the city in many of the series' stories, some fans took it as a tease for a new Silent Hill. But sensing the hype was inadvertently (or not?) building, Konami returned to clarify some things in a pair of tweets, while also linking followers to the official account for the series.
"Easy there internet. We were watching streams of Dead By Daylight and thought we would share the noise and feel of being hunted. We wont take the tweet down and "backpedal", we just wanted you to enjoy it.
"We are sorry we got people fired up. Anything official would come from first from @SilentHill or an event or something, not from us. We were just being fans and enjoyed the noise/memories. Sorry everyone, did mean to kill your Friday mood."
The handle @SilentHill was just made in July with its first tweet dating back to July 9. While this account so far has been used mainly to promote the series' crossover DLC with Behavior's Dead By Daylight, credible rumors from a known horror leaker on Twitter, @AestheticGamer, say the series is getting rebooted.
AestheticGamer says Konami was shopping the series around to find possible suitors in studio around the world more than a year ago, and the game may be revealed in this month's PS5 showcase, which itself has not yet been confirmed, but seems all but certain.
Previously, AestheticGamer has proven reliable on many details regarding the Resident Evil franchise, like that Resident Evil 3 was getting a remake and Resident Evil 8 would be called "Village" and include mythos-defying characters like werewolves and witches.
