Silent Hills Cancelled

One bit of bad news, one bit of good. First, Silent Hills has been cancelled. In a statement this morning, Konami has suggested that while they will remain "committed to new Silent Hill titles," Silent Hills will be no more. This is the project that was announced recently through a tiny game called "P.T.", short for "Playable Trailer." This terrifying miniature tale had the user walking through a hallway time after time until they'd found a way out of the darkness. A title lie therein.

It's a gosh-darned tragedy, that's what it is. This morning's news ends the collaboration – not between all parties involved, but between a few. The first solid item on the list is the removal of actor Norman Reedus from the equation. Konami has confirmed that his contract has ended – somehow – before the game was ever made.

Second, Guillermo del Toro may still be working with Hideo Kojima on "future Silent Hill projects." Konami suggests that discussions on these future Silent Hill projects with the two creatives are currently "underway."

Konami PR provided the following statement to SlashGear as well:

"Konami is committed to new Silent Hill titles, however the embryonic 'Silent Hills' project developed with Guillermo del Toro and featuring the likeness of Norman Reedus will not be continued."

Below you'll see what P.T. was all about.

The Playable Trailer is set to be removed from the PlayStation 4 this week. If you have the game downloaded, it may not load in the future.

So for now – get all the play you can out of it, as Silent Hills, the bit it advertises, will never see the light of day.
