Silent Hills Game Officially Scrapped

There has been a lot of speculation about the future of the Silent Hills game especially after Hideo Kojima had left Konami earlier this year. I didn’t want to believe it was true, but sadly it was confirmed that he would no longer be working with or have any affiliation to that company. Ok so that was bad enough, but now the awesome looking horror game that he was working on with director Guillermo del Toro and was supposed to feature Norman Reedus has now also been officially scrapped.

Many of you are probably familiar with the Silent Hill franchise and personally I thought they were great games and scary as hell. I downloaded and played the P.T. (Playable Teaser) that Konami released for Silent Hills and found it to be pretty nightmarish. Survival horror games aren’t really my favorite type of game to play, but this demo was done so well that it got me excited for the actual game.

silent-hills-pt2Norman Reedus and Guillermo del Toro both have admitted that their involvement with the project has come to an end but Konami has finally broken their silence and addressed the current status of Silent Hills. The following was taken from an email to Game Informer

“P.T. is being pulled from the PS store since it was created as a playable teaser for Silent Hills, but the distribution period and license usage within the demo have both now expired. Also, in response to what Del Toro said during the Q&A, 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.”

silent-hills-creepy-monsterI always find it sad when games that have built so much hype and such a loyal fan base are stopped and never make it to the sales shelves. As always I want to hear from you Nerd Nation. Are you disappointed that Silent Hills has been scrapped? Leave me your thoughts in a comment below, on the Facebook page, or hit me up on Twitter.
