The relationship between Konami and Hideo Kojima continues to appear more strained by the day. A month after Konami removed Kojima’s name from the official Metal Gear Solid websites and marketing materials, the publisher confirmed this morning that the upcoming Silent Hills remake is no more.
“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,” according to the statement provided to Polygon.
A much anticipated title co-directed by acclaimed director Guillermo del Toro and starring Norman Reedus, the game was announced via a “playable teaser” called P.T. after players solved a series of tricky puzzles which would lead to a cutscene revealing the Silent Hills name with Reedus as the protagonist. Players only have until April 29th to download the P.T. demo before it is officially removed from the PlayStation Store.
