Hideo Kojima, Guillermo del Toro Working on New Silent Hill

Walking Dead actor Norman Reedus will apparently star, as well.

Sony briefly teased a new game called P.T. during its Gamescom press conference, but remained intentionally vague about it. The company published a playable demo as soon as the conference ended, and Twitch streamer SoapyWarPig discovered P.T.'s elusive secret: it's a teaser for a new Silent Hill game.

No Caption Provided

It's not just any Silent Hill game, though. Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima, filmmaker Guillermo del Toro (Pacific Rim, Pan's Labyrinth), and actor Norman Reedus (Walking Dead) are all involved.

Kojima has confessed a desire to reboot Silent Hill in the past, and Guillermo del Toro has talked about his passion for video games at lengh. Del Toro was even developing a trilogy of horror games with THQ, but the series never got off the ground. It's unclear what involvement Kojima will have with this new Silent Hill, as he was a producer on Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, as well, but reportedly had little hands-on involvement with the development.

Most people are gonna flip out over this news. I want to flip out over this news (del Toro!!!!), but I'm not the biggest Kojima fan lately. But maybe it'll work out the same way as Lords of Shadow? Everyone wins? I guess?
