[UPDATE] P.T. To Be Removed From The PlayStation Store, Silent Hills Seemingly Cancelled

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.

UPDATE 2:

Norman Reedus has just tweeted about Silent Hills, and he is upset at the game’s cancellation.

UPDATE 3:
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.”

  1. Konami have pretty much ruined the Silent Hill franchise and now they’ve blown their chance at redeeming themselves.

  2. I cant see what all the fuss with this PT demo was all about. Its not entertaining and not remotely scary in any way at all. People have hailed it as the best gaming experience on PS4, utter tosh if you ask me.

    • Same here. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t brilliant either.
      The bit with the woman quickly appearing and then running through you was a bit freaky, but that was about it. I did find the rest of it a bit intriguing, but it soon got either too daft or boring for me.

      • P.T. was just that. a playable teaser that wasn’t representative of what Silent Hills was going to be. it was just to give people faith Silent Hills was going to be scary and anew direction for the franchise. also Silent Hills was planned to be third person not first person like P.T. was.
