It makes me so upset to say it. It really does. Just like film director Guillermo del Toro said over the weekend, “It’s not gonna happen and that breaks my greasy heart.”
Konami have officially announced that we can say bye-bye to seeing the PS4-exclusive horror game Silent Hills.
Originally revealed through P.T., a playable teaser (which if you haven’t downloaded, go DO IT RIGHT NOW. You have until Wednesday April 29th before they pull the plug on it.), Silent Hills is the highly anticipated collaboration between Metal Gear designer Hideo Kojima and one of my most favorite film directors Guillermo del Toro, also featuring the likeness of Norman Reedus.
The recent rumors about rocky relationships between Konami and Kojima had fans speculating that the game wouldn’t happen, and it turns out they were right. Konami has officially stated:
“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.”
What a damn SHAME! Hopefully they can pull something off soon, because that demo was something great. That sink fetus! AHHH! Seriously though, that thing creeps me out.
I’ve practically lived, eaten, breathed and slept this game since getting it after its release. I refresh the NeoGAF/GameFAQs threads about them pretty much constantly, and have managed to actually complete the demo for myself 3 times now. I’ve probably put 10 hours into playing.
I keep seeing people theorizing/summarizing about P.T. when clearly they didn’t pay enough attention during the game because they’re not taking things into account that the game explicitly TELLS YOU so I am going to compile a little list of “known facts” and other tidbits I picked up on from the game under the cut. If anyone has others, let me know.
Obvious spoilers ahead, for anyone who hasn’t played yet.
