Silent Hills looked like an incredible piece work. Guillermo Del Toro and Hideo Kojima has been cancelled. The news came yesterday at the San Francisco Film Festival during a Q&A were Del Toro was participating.
As of right now, there’s no comments from Del Toro, Kojima or Konami has made any statements to reveal what happened. Norman Reedus, actor in The Walking Dead and main character of the new game, said via Twitter,
Super bummed about this, was really looking forward to it. Maybe it’ll come back around. Sorry everyone.
Even if Reedus role is only acting and he is not involved in other areas of the video game. Maybe the reason could be budget, creative differences or Kojima’s ongoing falling-out with Komami. If he says it could come back, I assume there’s an internal problem that has to do with what I mentioned before. That’s just me.
These are sad news for gamers, but mainly for the Silent Hill fans out there who where looking forward to this game. Guillermo Del Toro’s Silent Hills looked like something special. That playable teaser was truly terrifying. Other thing that comes to my mind: How much work was completed in this game?
Users who don’t have the playable teaser still have one second chance to get it from the PSN, clearly only for PS4 owners. The game is listed under P.T. and the demo will be available until April 29th.
Update: Guillermo del Toro, told IGN it is his end of the collaboration with Kojima. Not the end of the game. Konami has not made any comments which leaves doubt. Is Silent Hills going to be made?
