After that stunning debut demo – which was this author's personal pick for Game of the Year – enthusiasm for Hideo Kojima's take on the Silent Hill franchise was sky high here at Push Square Towers. However, following news that the esteemed director will be joining the editorial team on this very website, it seems that the veteran developer will no longer be associated with the survival horror release.

VG247 spotted that the Kojima Productions logo has been removed from the Silent Hills website, which is more or less in line with its rebranding operation around the web. While the game could still be good – director Guillermo del Toro is still involved as far as we can tell – it was the Kojima link that had us hyped. After all, Konami hasn't done a particular great job with this once popular property in recent years, has it?
