Konami Cancelling Silent Hills

Yesterday, film director Guillermo del Toro stated that Silent Hills was not going to happen. Facebook and Twitter lit up. And we were all a bit surprised to read this, given how much support was behind the project. A del Toro/Kojima mesh sounds too awesome to ignore.

Today Konami confirmed that the project has been officially cancelled. Any previews and/or trailers are being removed and it is off the show floor for E3 this year. It's another blow from the company now that Kojima has elected to part ways from the developer.

"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. In terms of Kojima and Del Toro being involved, discussions on future Silent Hill projects are currently underway, and please stay tuned for further announcements." Konami statement to Kotaku.

So for fans, they are not giving up on Silent Hill as a franchise. It's this particular collaboration that will not move forward, and that sucks. Because it looked so damn cool. I was ready to be scared again.
