A lot of websites are covering the story that Microsoft is going to purchase the Silent Hills property to make it an Xbox One exclusive, citing someone at Rooster Teeth as a source. I think it is just time to bring a bit of perspective to this story as there is no way that will happen.
Not only is Konami trying to scrub the existence of Silent Hills, but they also were clear about a cancellation. Could we see a revival down the road? You bet. A Microsoft exclusive from a JAPANESE company that is kind of having a rocky path however is just not going to happen. We can always dream though…I suppose. Silent Hill is a lot like Mega Man to be honest. We want it, but the projects that were in the works are just too much of a mess now to be put back together.
