Of course, Silent Hill fans will probably be excited to hear this news and it's safe to say that only one game comes to mind and that is indeed Silent Hill. We have rumours, leaks and credible sources stating that something is definitely happening and many players have been craving to hear more about the game, so the wording from Yamaoka certainly makes sense.
If this is indeed another Silent Hill game, then it will be a ninth one for Akira Yamaoka who worked on the original Silent Hill, then Silent Hill 2, 3 and Silent Hill 4: The Room to name a few. Yamaoka also worked on Silent Hill: Revelation film in 2021 and his most recent work is for Bloober Team's The Medium, which certainly features a majestic soundtrack.
