New Silent Hill seemingly confirmed by DMCA takedown from Konami

By Ben Barrett

Not a week goes by without someone claiming they’ve got shots, video, gameplay, or other leaks from something that will get them five minutes of Twitter fame. Today it’s a new Silent Hill, and normally we’d wait for something a little more corroborated before posting, but then Konami issued a DMCA on all the images. Which, you know, confirms they belong to them, making the leak legitimate. Whoops.

AestheticGamer aka Dusk Golem, a popular YouTuber, game developer, and regular leaker (though not always backed up by those games releasing) put the tweet out a few hours ago, with a few images and scant few details. Sidebar: I wish these people were less coy when leaking, it makes everybody hate you. Just say what you have or what you’re happy to, good Lord.

Anyway, since then Konami DMCA’d him, as confirmed in a post on ResetEra but not before the images were distributed all over the internet – you can see them in that thread, on whichever Reddit you prefer, and so on. Given a DMCA is a way to say “hey, this is our content, and that person doesn’t have the right to publish it” it’s a good way to accidentally confirm a leak.

The images themselves are not getting a particularly good reception from the small but passionate Silent Hill community or the wider horror game one. That’s mostly down to comparisons between the character image of a woman with “I hate myself” written on her forehead and Jared Leto’s famously unsuccessful portrayal of the Joker in Suicide Squad.

Of course, none of that confirms that this game is still in development, that it will look anything like this when it’s eventually announced/released, or that it will go any further. Leaking stuff from a game can even lead to that game being canceled if the reaction is negative enough or, well, if the people in power feel like it. It may be many moons or never before we see anything of this.
