New Silent Hill Concept Art Uncovered from What Could Have Been of the Cancelled Game
The gaming community, both professionals and consumers alike, let out a collective exasperated “WTF” when the highly anticipated Silent Hill game ended up being scrapped. Even names like Guillermo del Toro made their displeasure known by saying it “makes no f**king sense” that this title be cast off into oblivion. If you were among the disappointed, monster designer and art director for Silent Hill Masahiro Ito took to Twitter to hopefully lessen the pain for those wanting more from the SH franchise. It’s not much, but dammit – we can dream.

The image is small and not at all high quality, but it does capture the “beginning” of the story that we will never see. With the resolution of the image, it is difficult to take away any huge details other than the common industrial theme that the team behind this franchise loves so much. When asked about whether or not we could get a better look, Ito responded that he didn’t have a higher res option available to share.
Though Ito did mention in the past that he would jump at an opportunity to work with Hideo Kojima-san, he was quick to mention that the concept art shown on his Twitter is not a part of the cancelled Silent Hill project between the mind behind Death Stranding and del Toro. The would-be game represented fits in between Silent Hill Downpour and Kojima’s cancelled title.
