It’s as we all feared: It looks like director Guillermo del Toro’s planned survival horror game Silent Hills is dead as a doornail. Del Toro revealed that the new entry in Konami’s hit Silent Hill videogame franchise, starring Walking Dead fan fave Norman Reedus, won’t go ahead, and is quoted by entertainment journalist Matt Hackney, who attended the geek favorite's Q&A at Castro Theater over the weekend, as saying, "It's not gonna happen, and that breaks my greasy heart."
You can also listen to Guillermo del Toro announcing the death of Silent Hills:
The sad news comes on the heels of Hideo Kojima's recently announced (and shocking) plans to leave Konami. Kojima, who was set to helm Silent Hills, will leave after Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain is released this upcoming September. Konami had assured its fans that Kojima’s departure would not affect the future of the Metal Gear Solid franchise, but they didn’t promise anything of the sort for the Silent Hill one.
With Silent Hills canceled, what'll happen to the beloved horror survival game now? What do you think? Are you bummed out by the news, or were you expecting it?
