This morning, Konami announced that they have cancelled Silent Hills, the Hideo Kojima, Guillermo del Toro, and Norman Reedus game. Konami said that the series will go on, it just won’t be in that state.
Rumors of the cancellation began over the weekend when the Playable Teaser, or P.T., had a notification on the official P.T. website stating that it will no longer be on the PlayStation Store starting this Wednesday, April 29th.
The following day, film director Guillermo del Toro was asked a question about Silent Hills at a Q&A. This what he had to say:
To add to the fire, actor Norman Reedus tweeted the following:
It’s unknown what will happen to the franchise now.
Ever since the Konami/Kojima story broke, we all saw this coming. It’s just a shame that we got confirmation. I can’t remember the last time I was truly excited for a Silent Hill game, and to have two great directors from different mediums team up would have been a dream team of greatness. Maybe after Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is released, Kojima will find a place and team up with del Toro to make a new IP together.
Jesse Webster is a Senior Writer at MONG and really wanted to see the Kojima/del Toro nightmare.
