If you were just like thousands and thousands of people who were eagerly anticipating Silent Hills, get your Kleenex ready because it’s not happening.
Although it was announced last year (through a playable teaser on the PS4) that the game has been in development, it seems that something major happened that put the whole project to a stop.
The anticipated game project, that would have combined both movie and video game geniuses like writer/producer/director Guillermo del Toro, Metal Gear man Hideo Kojima, and The Walking Dead’s hugely popular actor Norman Reedus, got killed off by Konami Digital Entertainment itself.
Allegedly, there has since been some tension between Kojima’s company and Konami. Del Toro shared the news himself during the San Francisco film festival a couple of days ago: “It’s not gonna happen and that breaks my greasy heart.”
Konami Digital Entertainment issued a formal statement, soon after del Toro’s word spread across the globe: “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. Discussions on future Silent Hill projects are currently underway, so please stay tuned for further announcements.”
Del Toro is currently working on a bunch of projects, including Crimson Peak, which arrives in the UK on October 16th.
