Kojima and del Toro’s Silent Hills Game Cancelled


The Kojima-Konami saga continues today as new broke out this past weekend on his Silent Hills project. And sadly that news is the game being produced by Kojima and Guillermo del Toro has been cancelled by Konami. Details on why the game has been canned was not revealed, but Kotaku received official word from Konami confirming that they have parted ways with the project.

“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.

In terms of Kojima and Del Toro being involved, discussions on future Silent Hill projects are currently underway, and please stay tuned for further announcements.”

To add further disappointment to the news the playable teaser P.T. will be removed from the PlayStation Store on Wednesday. All of this just adds to the recent drama that has been going on with Kojima and Konami over the last few weeks on his rumored departure from the company.

As a fan of Guillermo del Toro it saddens me that his second attempt at a video game has found itself cancelled again. His first attempt being the game Insane which was cancelled when THQ went out of business. Here is hoping he tries one more time at video games and the third time’s the charm.
