Well, here’s a bit of a downer: the embryonic Silent Hills has officially been scrapped. Announced last year through a playable teaser, the game was set to be a collaboration between Metal Gear Solid designer Hideo Kojima and movie director Guillermo del Toro. It would have starred Norman Reedus of The Walking Dead fame and, odd title aside, it intrigued many fans and horror hounds.
Things have been kinda rocky over at Konami this past month, hinting that the company and Kojima himself have been at odds. Guillermo del Toro then dropped the bomb to say that the project is stillborn, before Konami themselves made the official announcement. They’ve also voluntarily delisted themselves from the New York Stock Exchange, leaving gamers wondering if the classic game company could be in some serious trouble.
Regardless, we’ve been assured that more Silent Hill and Metal Gear Solid games are on their way in the foreseeable future.
