Internet users noted Friday (5) that the silenthill.com domain, previously used by Konami to announce the franchise’s first releases, was officially purchased by an anonymous.
The site was used to advertise Konami’s games at the turn of the 21st century, but was closed by the publisher in 2003 when it shared the original information and content from Silent Hill 3. After that, the domain passed through the hands of several other moderators, losing any connection to the psychological horror saga.
In 2019, the site was officially put up for sale for the supposed amount of US $ 9,800 (roughly R $ 52,000 in direct conversion), and everything indicates that someone has paid for that amount and is already running the page, including a background image with Pyramid Head and a phrase “he was the first”. Check it out below.
The fact caught the attention of insider Dusk Golem, who drew attention in his official profile and developed a theory of what could happen.
“I don’t have enough information to check the history of the domain, and I think it’s part of the Silent Hill public relations relaunch in an interesting and strange way (the official @ SilentHill profile that many thought was was incorrect at first, but it is but at first I am not convinced that it is real. “
No details have been disclosed as to the purpose of this acquisition so far, so there should be more news on the matter.
