A leaker claims that Silent Hill is coming to PlayStation 5. The source kicked the rumor mill into overdrive when they said the announcement could be coming sooner than you think. 

In April, whispers of a Silent Hill reboot and revival began to pop up everywhere. The projects were supposedly being worked on by Sony and helmed by Team Silent. While many thought the titles were fake, a new leak has revived those rumors.


On July 6, a leaker claimed that the beloved Konami series is in fact in the works for PlayStation 5. Even more interesting is that the source suggests the release will be announced sometime in 2020.

Rumors suggest Silent Hill will make its return as a PS5 exclusive.

Silent Hill announced for PS5 this year?

Ever since Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro’s Silent Hills was canceled back in 2015, players have been desperate for another release in the franchise. The duo’s mind dropping P.T. demo gave us a glimpse into what a next-gen horror game could look like.


Luckily for fans, it appears a new title is being worked. On July 6, leaker AestheticGamer ‘Dusk Golem’ responded to a follower and claimed that there is a new game in the works. “100% Silent Hill is coming back, that I can say with certainty (and have been since the start of the year). A Japanese-developed Silent Hills game started dev at the beginning of 2019,” the tweet said.

When another user called the rumor “rubbish,” Dusk responded stating that he was not tied to the rumors back in April. “You’re free to believe that. I’m not part of those previous rumors, and I can say 100% I know a Japanese-made Silent Hill is in the works now, and I have reason to believe the rest for now,” he said.

AestheticGamer replied to more posts on Twitter, and stated that if the rumors of Sony’s Japan Studio being involved are true, we can expect the announcement to happen in 2020. “The reveal will be this year, but the exact time is unclear. The two most likely times will be in August/September.”


Previously, Dusk Golem has stated that the project is reportedly a PlayStation 5 exclusive and is being made by Studio Japan. The game will also supposedly have Silent Hill’s writer Keiichiro Toyama as the director, and will be scored by series composer Akira Yaomoka.

Lastly, the source has shot down rumors that Sony has bought the IP and clarified that this is more of a soft reboot. If all of this is true, it sounds like Konami is hitting all the right notes with hardcore fans of the franchise.

While it should be stated to take any rumor with a grain of salt, the leaker is a prominent figure in the horror game scene, and has been accurate with leaks in the past. And given that talks about a Sony Silent Hill game won’t go away, it doesn’t seem that far-fetched.


The last SH game to be released in the main series was Downpour in 2012, leaving fans close to over eight years without a proper title. While it’s not the Konami Silent Hills project that many wanted, the horror series would be a welcome return.

Genshin Impact is home to loads of colorful characters, but you’ll need to spend a lot of Primogems if you wish to increase your chances of obtaining the game’s elusive five-star units. Fortunately, there is an easy way to grab a lot of Primogems without breaking the bank. 

MiHoYo’s free-to-play title, Genshin Impact allows players to explore every inch of its vast open-world completely free of charge. In fact, you can get through the entirety of the game’s current content without spending a penny. However, if you wish to increase your roster of characters and gain access to some incredibly powerful weapons, then you’ll need to score yourself a lot of Primogems. 


These twinkling gems are used to purchase the game’s Acquaint Fates and Intertwined Fates, which are then used to Perform Wishes (Gacha). Primogems are also used to refill the game’s energy/stamina system (Original Resin), making them vital to both acquiring new characters and farming the game’s deadly dungeons. While you’ll naturally get this in-game currency as you progress through the game, there is an even easier way to add more Primogems to your account.

One way to add Primogems to your Genshin Impact account is to redeem promo codes. These codes not only net you a decent number of Primogems, they also give you access to a number of useful items that will make your adventure through the world of Teyvat much smoother. 


In order to claim these codes, you’ll first need to level your account up to Adventure Rank 10. You can do this fairly quickly by doing main/side quests, exploring the map, opening chests, and doing your daily commissions. Once you’ve reached Adventure Rank 10, simply head on over to the official Genshin Impact website

Before you enter the region-specific codes below, make sure you’ve done the following:

  1. Reached Adventure Rank 10
  2. Signed into the official Genshin Impact Website
  3. Selected the server you play on
  4. Entered your character nickname (in-game name) 

As soon as you’ve done the above, you should be able to enter the following code:



  • GENSHIN1006U

  • GENSHIN1006S

Once the code has been activated, head back over to your game. If done correctly, you should receive an in-game notification. Simply click on the mail icon from the pause menu to claim your rewards. The above codes will reward your account with 30 Primogems and 5x Adventure EXP that you can use to level up any characters. Not bad for a few minutes of work!
