Silent Hills officially cancelled
After raised questions regarding the decision to remove P.T – the playable trailer, and marketing initiative, for Silent Hills – from the PlayStation Store, it has been confirmed by Publisher Konami that plans to develop the full title have been terminated.
The highly anticipated lovechild of Hideo Kojima, the father of the Metalgear series, and legendary director Guillermo del Toro (not to mention The Walking Dead star, Norman Reedus) was cancelled on Monday (April 27) following an official statement by Konami.
The statement read that “Konami is committed to new Silent Hill titles, however the embryonic Silent Hills project developed with Guillermo del Toro and featuring the likeness of Norman Reedus will not be continued.”
News of the death of Silent Hills arrived just weeks after Kojima revealed his decision to leave Konami, sparking rumours of a power struggle at Konami and a rift between the company and its employees.
Daryl Dixon fans will be disappointed to hear that Konami has declared their contract with Norman Reedus has “expired”. That being said however, Konami remain open towards future collaborations with Kojima and del Toro, announcing that “in terms of Kojima and del Toro being involved, discussions on future silent hill projects are currently underway and please stay tuned for future announcements”.
