God of War director Corey Barlog has expressed an interest in working on the remake of Silent Hill.
There has been no official news related to the video game series for a long time, and recent publisher Konami denied rumors that the company was working on a reboot of the franchise.

Silent Hill is a survival horror game that puts you in the shoes of a father who seeks to recover his daughter from a secret and sinister cult in the American countryside. It is widely considered to be one of the best video games of all time, using mist and haze simulations to mask the low-quality graphics of early console generations.
Although it generated several sequels, its franchise had not seen a new installment since 2012. In 2014, Hideo Kojima, creator of the aforementioned Metal Gear Solid series, stated that he was working on a new Silent Hill title in collaboration with Mexican filmmaker Guillermo del Toro. And when his joint venture was rumored to have been pushed too far into development, it was eventually canceled when Kojima fell in favor of the industry’s supreme Konami.
On 2018’s God Of War Cory Barlog has recently worked.
Not only received near-universal praise and is considered one of the best games in the series but also won Best Game and Game Direction of the Year at the Sports Awards in 2018. Also, He worked on various other warlords, including the original God of War, as lead animator, God of War, God of War as director and narrator, both as narrators for God of War: Chain of Olympus and Ghosts of Sparta as one of the first directors of God of War III. He even worked as a cinematic director in 2013 critically acclaimed Tomb Raider.
Despite the fact that Barlog has not worked on a major horror game, his work on the God of War franchise, as well as the 2013 Tomb Raider reboot, shows that he knows how to create a surprising and engaging cinematic experience, which without Doubt is it can work well in Silent Hill. Even if the Balrogs do end up working on a Silent Hill remaster, it would be safe to say that it will be long enough, until fans have heard of it, let alone the opportunity to play it.
and let me do it. https://t.co/2sCJ8WTGQk
