The Gaming world went cuckoo for cocoa puffs earlier this month when ‘Insiders’ claimed Sony and Konami were joining forces to resurrect the Silent Hill franchise that the Konami folks had sent to purgatory in most recent years.

Now for the bad news. Konami’s US PR rep responded to an email from Rely on Horror regarding the rumors only to receive this disheartening answer:

We’re aware of all the rumors and reports but can confirm that they are not true. I know it’s not the answer your fans may want to hear.

Hear me out! OF COURSE THEY’RE GOING TO SAY THAT IT’S NOT TRUE!! Who would want to ruin such a grand surprise?!

Ok, OK. It was most likely a rumor. OH WELL. 2020 continues to shit all over us, Brah.
