To be honest, we're still not over the death of the Guillermo del Toro and Hideo Kojima's Silent Hills game that was all set to be the full realization of the horrific nightmare fuel that was P.T.
However, all may not be lost.
IGN posted an interview with del Toro that hinted a the possibility of future collaborations.
[D]el Toro said, "I love working with Kojima-san. We are still in touch. We are still friends and working into doing something together, but that's not going to be [Silent Hills]."
Guillermo del Toro also detailed a bit about what Silent Hills -- though still very early in the development process -- could have been.
"We were in the planning stages, and it's a shame it's not going to happen," del Toro said. "We were talking about really pushing the boundaries of the new consoles, and making the game really mess with your head. One of the great moments in Metal Gear [Solid] was Psycho Mantis. The idea that a game can actually interact with you, and stuff like that."
You really should not count these horror chickens before they hatch. Del Toro famously packs his future schedule extremely tight and he seems to like to load up on very exciting-sounding projects that have the tendency to fizzle out in a puff of industry blockage.
Currently, he's supposed to be directing a Frankenstein reboot, Pacific Rim 2 (YES!), and there's been a continuous swirl of rumor concerning a possible Hellboy 3.
So, you can get excited, just please treat those emotions with caution.
