It had the pedigree to make survival horror relevant again, but the Silent Hills dream is all but over. Following on from comments made by Pan's Labyrinth director Guillermo del Toro over the weekend, The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus has now admitted that he's no longer involved with the project either. And worse still, Konami's saying very little about the status of the game.
As part of an awkwardly worded Q&A sent to Eurogamer.net, it said that it will continue to develop the Silent Hill series – but it conspicuously avoided mention of Hideo Kojima's hotly anticipated game. It also added that its contract with Reedus has expired, so that would perhaps explain P.T.'s imminent removal from the PlayStation Store. In other words: this is a real sorry state of affairs.
The worst part is that we firmly believe that it was onto something here. Sigh.
