Guillermo del Toro says Silent Hills is ‘not gonna happen’

silent hills canceled

Konami, what have you done? It’s been reported via TV’s Matt Hackney’s Twitter that, according to Guillermo del Toro, Silent Hills is no longer happening. Del Toro was working on the game with Hideo Kojima, and during his panel at the San Francisco International Film Festival last night, he dropped the bombshell:

“It’s not gonna happen, and that breaks my greasy heart.”

Del Toro’s assistant, Ian Gibson, retweeted and confirmed the news.

Del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Pacific Rim) joined forces with Metal Gear Solid’s Kojima to reinvigorate the Silent Hill franchise with the upcoming Silent Hills game starring Norman Reedus. Fans were wondering what the state of the game was going to be when it was rumored that Konami and Kojima Productions had a power struggle, specifically for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Konami took out all signs of the Kojima brand (they later added them back in), and this caused fans to worry. The rumor also said that once MGS V is done, the higher ups at Kojima Productions will be let go, including Kojima.

This is definitely a big sign that things aren’t okay between Konami and Kojima Productions.

Are you sad about Silent Hills vanishing in the fog?
