Rumours have circulated for sometime that a new Silent Hill game is in development. Though Bloober Team are allegedly working on a project, speculation now suggests Sony are also funding their own game, with Death Stranding developers Kojima Productions at the helm.
As reported by Gematsu, they cited that this comes from a "publishing source" that "wishes to remain anonymous." Previously, Hideo Kojima had famously worked on 2014's P.T. demo for Silent Hills, before Konami cancelled it a year later.

However, coming from the original source himself, Andy Robinson of VGC stated that it might not be Kojima Productions behind this rumoured Silent Hill project, though he isn't doubting the information by Gematsu's Sal Romano. He confirmed:
“All I can say is that the Japanese studio referenced in my reporting is not Kojima Productions. It's very possible there are multiple games going on within Japan, or that external studios are working together, but that's speculation from me. Sal (Romano) at Gematsu is a great journalist so I don't doubt his info.”
This came after news that Konami is looking to revive their most renowned franchises such as Silent Hill. Castlevania, and Metal Gear Solid. As for Silent Hill, rumours began circulating last February when composer Akira Yamaoka teased that he was working on a project "you're hoping to hear about", which has since been deleted.
