Guillermo del Toro says Silent Hills cancellation ‘makes no ****ing sense’


Guillermo del Toro (Pacific Rim) expressed his disappointment with the canceled Silent Hills game, a project he was working on with Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima and actor Norman Reedus. With the drama of the Konami and Kojima split, the project went under. Del Toro once again talks about the canceled game in an interview with Bloody Disgusting, and this time with an angrier tone.

“Makes no fucking sense at all,” he said.

Del Toro and Kojima made a demo in the form of a Playable Teaser for the PlayStation 4. Nobody knew what the game actually was until a few were able to figure out the puzzle and share it online, making the reveal viral. The PT demo is no longer available on the PSN Store.

Del Toro was excited to work on the canceled project.

“We had a great experience and had great story sessions with hundreds upon hundreds of designs. Some of the stuff that we were designing for Silent Hills I’ve seen in games that came after, like The Last of Us, which makes me think we were not wrong, we were going in the right direction,” he said. “The thing with Kojima and Silent Hills is that I thought we would do a really remarkable game and really go for the jugular.

Excitement then turned to irritation.

“We were hoping to actually create some sort of panic with some of the devices we were talking about and it is really a shame that it’s not happening,” del Toro said. “When you ask about how things operate, that makes no fucking sense at all that that game is not happening.”

He reiterates with, “Makes no fucking sense at all. That’s the randomness that I was talking about.”

Even if del Toro and Kojima aren’t working on Silent Hills, del Toro mentioned that they are still working together but for a different project.
