UPDATE: While it has been confirmed that P.T. will be removed, Konami has denied the cancellation of the new game in the Silent Hill series. However, it appears that the trifecta of talent that would be the force behind the game — creator Hideo Kojima, director Guillermo del Toro, and actor Norman Reedus — are no longer part of the project as all three have been relieved of duty.
So, while the game may not be cancelled, what made us excited and what would have been has all been removed. If you think that still qualifies as a cancellation, let your voice be heard in the comments below.
Original article below.
An ad for P.T., the free playable teaser for the Kojima Productions and Guillermo del Toro Silent Hills project, has shown that the unique horror experience will be delisted from PSN on April 29th, 2015. It seems odd that Konami would delist it, since many will not be able to experience P.T. after it disappears, thus limiting its potential as advertising for Silent Hills.

Unfortunately, a quote from Guillermo del Toro seems to indicate why such an effective marketing tool will be removed: Silent Hills has been cancelled. We’ve known for a while that Kojima was planning to leave Konami after Metal Gear Solid V and the Kojima Productions logo was removed from the Silent Hills website. It seems that Konami no longer has any interest in the game now that Kojima Productions will not be developing it.
