The future of Silent Hills has been a much discussed topic following the upheaval at Konami in which Hideo Kojima found himself being removed from everything Metal Gear Solid. We’re still not entirely sure what is going on and now Konami have announced that P.T., the playable teaser for Silent Hills, is to be removed from the PlayStation Store.
The game was meant to be created by Hideo and horror film director Guillermo del Toro, with The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus as the the star of the game. We’ve heard very little about the title since the tease and with the removal of P.T., the future of the project is unclear.
Konami have given no reason for as to why the game is being removed.
UPDATE: It appears that Guillermo del Toro, speaking at San Fancisco Film Fest last night, has confirmed that Silent Hills has been cancelled.

Norman Reedus has just tweeted about Silent Hills, and he is upset at the game’s cancellation.
Super bummed about this was really looking forward to it. Hopefully it'll come back around. Sorry everyone 🍕 http://t.co/drZJ8tBsSN

Konami have confirmed Reedus’ departure, stating “our contract period with Norman Reedus has expired.”
However, they would not comment on the status of Silent Hills, the Hideo Kojima game, and would only say “We will continue to develop the Silent Hill series.”
