Guillermo del Toro confirms that Silent Hill isn’t going to happen


Rumors that Hideo Kojima would be leaving Konami, a corporation that he’s worked at for nearly three decades, have circulating since last month. The rumors claimed that Kojima would be leaving after the release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and many people were afraid that this would affect the new Silent Hill project. Now it looks like those fears were well founded as Guillermo del Toro, who was collaborating with Kojima on the project, has confirmed that it’s not going to happen. 

Following yesterday’s news that Konami would be pulling Silent Hills teaser P.T. from the PlayStation Store next week, director Guillermo del Toro told the audience at a San Francisco Film Society event that his collaboration with Hideo Kojima is no longer a going concern. The news came by way of a tweet from photojournalist Matt Hackney (via NeoGAF), who was in attendance at last night’s “An Evening with Guillermo del Toro” event in San Francisco. Io9 Observation Deck contributor Remedios Varo was also on hand for the event and discussed the news on Twitter earlier today. While del Toro’s comments don’t necessarily mean the Silent Hills project is completely cancelled—we’ll have to wait for official word from publisher Konami on that one—it certainly indicates that at least one of the driving forces behind the game is no longer involved. And with the current muddy relationship status between superstar game director Hideo Kojima and Konami, it’s likely neither is attached. Toss in an apologetic tweet from Silent Hills star Norman Reedus…
