If it seemed like a collaboration between Hideo Kojima, Guillermo Del Toro and Norman Reedus on a dynasty horror franchise seemed to good to be true, it looks like you were right. As it becomes more apparent that Kojima is splitting ways with Konami, the projects he's been involved in, especially Silent Hills, seem to be closer and closer to the chopping block.
In recent days both Del Toro and Reedus have come forward to confirm the bad news for Silent Hill fans.
P.T. the playable teaser and viral marketing campaign for Silent Hills was released at Gamescon and started a buzz around the title with its reliance on atmospheric tone for fear, rather than traditional video game jump scares. While the team behind P.T. thought it would take weeks to unravel all of their esoteric puzzles, Twitch streamers uncovered the secret cinematic trailer behind it within a day of its release.
To make matters worse, P.T. will be leaving the Playstation Store on Wednesday April, 29th, so if you haven't played it yet, now may be your last chance. Hopefully Kojima and Del Toro can come together when everything settles down, and the project can be re-opened.
