Konami cancels Guillermo del Toro and Hideo Kojima's Silent Hills

This is rough news for gamers and film fans alike, as the Silent Hills video game that Guillermo del Toro (CRIMSON PEAK, PACIFIC RIM) and Hideo Kojima (Metal Gear Solid series) were working on has officially been cancelled. The psychological horror series took place in the fictitious American town (the titular Silent Hill) and would have starred Norman Reedus in the lead role.

About this time last month, it was reported that Hideo Kojima's name would be removed from the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. While this led many to believe that Kojima's relationship with Konami may have soured, the studio assured fans that he would still be working on the game and seeing it through to completion. This recent news certainly doesn't bode well for that relationship, and it looks as though Guillermo is calling it quits regarding any future video games.

Guillermo del Toro on Silent Hills:

Kojima and myself have been in touch for many years. I think the vision was amazing. What we had planned was amazing. I’m heartbroken. We were trying, I don’t know, I’m gonna ask him and if I can next time we meet - or you see me somewhere - I’ll tell you what we were planning. It was to f*ck with your brain really bad. It was truly cutting edge stuff.

Those of you with a Playstation 4 might be familiar with the tech demo released for Silent Hills entitled P.T. (Playable Teaser). The demo allowed players a first-person view of a hallway littered with interactivity and some very sinister scares. It's worth noting that the demo will be pulled from the Playstation Store on April 29th, so if you haven't had a chance to play it, make sure you jump on it before it's gone. It's too bad we'll never get to see where those two creative geniuses might have taken the franchise.

Guillermo del Toro's next film, CRIMSON PEAK, will be released on October 16, 2015.

bummer. this looked to be pretty good. Reedus should be in a Quantic Dream game. They make very good games, and he would be epic as a main character!

Yet another reason to not bother getting a current gen console. I keep waiting for something interesting, but every time I find something, the ball gets dropped.

Well that's Konami for you. Although more and more games companies seem to be making poor decisions lately. I'm increasingly less bothered that I can't afford to get on board with the current gen of consoles.

crap

am a huge 'Silent Hill' and 'MGS' fan so you could understand how excited i was about this game, this really sucks. Also Del Toro can't catch a break with a video game either: first 'Sundowners', then 'Insane', now this. Its getting painful, damn it.

Dang

Shitty day for SH fans. Was hoping this was going to utilize the next gen in ways that only a SH game could. P.T. was dope.

Between their purge of Kojima and what they did to Castlevania, I want nothing more than to see Konami crash and burn.

WTF? This game has everything going for it. That Demo was one of the best marketing for video games in a big while and the Demo itself was effin' scary and awesome at the same time. I hope this is just a minor setback - some sort of hiatus - that it would be back on track again soon.
