A new Silent Hill game could be revealed as a PS5 (opens in new tab) exclusive as soon as this week as part of Sony's upcoming next-gen event (opens in new tab), according to a new rumour from proven industry leaker AestheticGamer.
Posting their intel on Twitter (opens in new tab), AestheticGamer claims that the rumoured Silent Hill game, which is said to be in the works at Japan Studios under the creative direction of the survival horror series' original creator Keiichirō Toyama, could be announced on June 4, when PlayStation unveils new details about its upcoming successor to the PS4.
(2/2) The only reason it might not is it's not a launch game.Resident Evil 8 I have no idea when the reveal is, but it was supposed to be E3 originally. It's a cross-gen game, similarly I think August is the latest it'll show up, but I suspect it'll show up somewhere this monthMay 31, 2020
Japan Studio is apparently "excited to reveal" the project, suggests the post, though also stresses that if June 4 comes and goes without an announcement, then August is also a possible timeline for the unveiling instead.
In addition, AestheticGamer offered an update on the already confirmed Resident Evil 8 (opens in new tab) sequel, stating that it's a cross-gen game that should also be revealed by August at the latest, though they "suspect it'll show up somewhere this month."
According to their sources, the next entry in Capcom's survival horror series was supposed to be shown at the now cancelled E3 2020 (opens in new tab) convention, which was scrapped earlier this year as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
It's worth taking all of this with a hint of salt, of course, but it's certainly worth keeping in mind as we head towards the PS5 reveal this Thursday. GamesRadar will bring all the latest as soon as it's announced, so be sure to stay tuned throughout the week.
