After the cancellation of P.T and the departure of Hideo Kojima from Konami, there is very little hope for a new Silent Hill game. Now, art director for Silent Hill game has released a concept art for a canceled Silent Hill game.
Masahiro Ito shared the concept for the canceled Silent Hill game through his official twitter account. According to Masahiro Ito, he drew this concept art back in 2013 for a new Silent Hill game which got canceled.

Masahiro Ito has designed monsters and art for Silent Hill titles since the inception of this franchise. He was the one who brought to life the most recognizable figures from the entire series, Pyramid Head.
He pointed out that he could not talk about the art too extensively as it would reveal “some metaphors of [the game’s] story”.
He also pointed out that he was not involved with P.T which would imply that he was working on a completely separate Silent Hill game which canceled before the P.T was released.
While the Silent Hill from Hideo Kojima has been canceled but it was not only praised by players but also by other devs. According to Layers Of Fear dev, Silent Hills/P.T could have been groundbreaking.
The Playable Teaser in a way opened our eyes. Suddenly, we heard the people’s voices that there is a place on the market for a horror that isn’t a survival game, also its use of ‘impossible space’ became one of our main inspirations for Layers of Fear.
We were hugely disappointed by the Silent Hills cancellation, it was shaping to become a truly groundbreaking title. I believe this game will yet again surface in the future, but it most definitely be a different game. If it will stand toe-to-toe to P.T.’s quality is a big unknown, I’m keeping my fingers crossed though.
Do you think Konami would ever release a new Silent Hill game? Let us know in the comments.
