IGN have spoken to Guillermo Del Toro regarding the cancellation of Silent Hills and it is clear he is just as annoyed and upset as the rest of us.
“The collaboration between Kojima and myself, the meetings, and the friendship that was developing was beautiful,” he said. “We had an agreement on where to go. We had an agreement on how we were going to push the new platforms. We were having a blast.”
Del Toro goes on to explain that Silent Hills would have used “cutting-edge” technology to create a game that was “very, very atmosphere-drenched.”
This is the second time Del Toro’s game has been cancelled, previously he was working on Insane for THQ, and this second blow seems to have dampened his enthusiasm for the medium.
“I’ve tried twice and I don’t know if I’ll ever come back to the form. In one instance, the company went down, and in the second, the completely unexpected happened, which was Kojima and Konami separating. It’s kind of left me reeling,” he said.
However, Del Toro has hinted that if Kojima were to make another game for another publisher, he may be on board.
“Hideo and I have been in touch, and he knows he would be the only guy I would follow to the ends of the earth on anything. I think if anything can be rescued, I will be more than happy.”
