Hideo Kojima, best known as the creator of the Metal Gear Solid, recently said that the president of Konami has asked him to make the next Silent Hill game, specially after Kojima said that he wouldn’t mind working on the series.
“In the past I’ve mentioned Silent Hill in interviews, and as a result of that the president of Konami rung me up and said he’d like me to make the next Silent Hill.
Honestly, I’m kind of a scaredy-cat when it comes to horror movies, so I’m not confident I can do it. At the same time, there’s a certain type of horror that only people who are scared of can create, so maybe it’s something I can do.
That said, I think Silent Hill has a certain atmosphere. I think it has to continue, and I’d love to help it continue, and if I can help by supervising or lending the technology of the Fox Engine, then I’d love to participate in that respect.”
What do you think about Hideo Kojima working on the next Silent Hill title? Would that make Konami finally open their eyes and give to the series the love it deserves?
These news certainly give some hope on what the future of Silent Hill will be, and seeing Konami refering a “next Silent Hill” actually makes me happy, specially if it has Kojima on the team!
