Guillermo del Toro no longer on Silent Hills

Kojima's horror reboot cancelled?

Silent Hills

Update: Silent Hills is cancelled.

Original: Silent Hills might be no more, if the words of Guillermo del Toro and Norman Reedus are to go by. The pair were collaborating with Hideo Kojima on the project.

At the San Francisco Film Festival on Saturday night, in regards to Silent Hills, Guillermo del Toro said, “It’s not gonna happen and that breaks my greasy heart,” according to photojournalist Matt Hackney.

IGN notes that del Toro was speaking only on collaborating with Kojima, not whether or not the game has been cancelled.

Actor Norman Reedus added in a tweet, “Super bummed about this was really looking forward to it. Hopefully it’ll come back around. Sorry everyone.” He linked to a report claiming the game is cancelled—though, it’s one based on del Toro’s earlier statement.

On Saturday, Konami announced that P.T., the Playable Teaser that led to the reveal of the Silent Hills trailer, would be removed from the PlayStation Store on April 29.

All of this follows reports that Hideo Kojima, who was heading the Silent Hills project, is expected to leave Konami following the release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

We might never soil ourselves.
