On the heels of yesterday’s announcement of PT’s removal from the PlayStation Network, Konami has officially confirmed the cancellation of Silent Hills. Guillermo del Toro had previously hinted the game was not going to see the light of day. Since Hideo Kojima is no longer with Konami and was one of the main designers for the game, Konami felt it was better to cancel the game. While everyone mourns this unfortunate news, Konami has announced it is “committed” to the Silent Hill franchise and plans to create new games for the series. We do not know if Guillermo del Toro will be involved with future Silent Hill projects or if Konami will designate someone else to head the projects.
Konami’s Official Statement:
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.
With Konami’s Silent Hills cancellation official, are you upset the game is not going to be finished? Will you still support the Silent Hill franchise? Will you be supporting Konami’s future projects? Let us know your thoughts and feelings below.
