P.T. Being Pulled, Silent Hills Most Likely Cancelled

Guillermo del Toro and Norman Reedus seem to confirm that the Silent Hills Project is cancelled.

Yesterday saw an announcement that Konami would be pulling the Silent Hills teaser, P.T., from the PlayStation Store on 4/29. However, with some new information that has come out, it seems that the whole Silent Hills project has been cancelled.

Guillermo del Toro announced that his collaboration with Hideo Kojima is no longer a concern at a San Francisco Film Society Event. It was then spread around by photojournalist Matt Hackney on Twitter who had attended the event.

While these statements alone do not confirm that the project is cancelled, given the recent relationship between Hideo Kojima and Konami, it can be assumed that he is no longer attached to the project either. 

Taking this all into account already seems bad enough for fans of the game. But to make matters worse, Norman Reedus himself tweeted about the game and it seems like that may be the final nail in the coffin and further adds to the belief that the project is cancelled.

It is a shame that the project will most likely never be released.  The teaser was an amazing project within itself, and imagining a whole game based off that alone seems exciting.  Anything can happen going forward, but it does seem that even if the project is revived that it will not be the same project that fans were introduced to with P.T.

So what do you think, are you bummed that P.T. is being pulled and that Silent Hills is most likely cancelled, or are you holding out hope that the project will be revived.


I am currently going to school for Journalism and hope to eventually work full-time in the game industry writing articles or working in public relations. I love all types of games although shooters and RPGs are my favorite. My gaming platform of choice is the Xbox One/Xbox 360 but I have been known to play games on computers or PlayStation occasionally. I am always interested in hearing feedback or meeting new people. You can find me on Twitter at thunderbunny4 or try my Xbox gamertag which is also Thunderbunny4.
