Kojima and Del Toro are still in cahoots

Silent Hills may be cancelled but we may still see a game from duo Hideo Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro.

One of the most exciting pieces of news from last year was that Hideo Kojima was teaming up with Guillermo Del Toro to develop a reboot of the Silent Hill franchise. The reveal came in the innovative form of a playable teaser - a free game released on the Playstation network called P.T. developed by a fictitious studio with a hidden reveal for Silent Hills.

One of the saddest pieces of news this year however was that after the release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Hideo Kojima would not have his contract with Konami renewed. One of the casualties of this fallout was Silent Hills, which was officially cancelled.

Still buddies

Thankfully, there is now some more good news. Even though Silent Hill is the property of Konami, it seems that Kojima and Del Toro are still in contact and eager to collaborate on another project. In the interview with IGN, Del Toro said:

"We are still in touch. We are still friends and working into doing something together, but that's not going to be Silent Hills."

Free from the confines of Silent Hill and Konami, the potential is even greater for what these two artists could achieve together. Silent Hills may be cancelled officially, but here's hoping we still see it in all but name.
