UPDATE II: Konami has released a statement to Kotaku confirming that Silent Hills is cancelled - "the embryonic ‘Silent Hills’ project developed with Guillermo del Toro and featuring the likeness of Norman Reedus will not be continued".
UPDATE: An anonymous source has told IGN that Guillermo del Toro's comments were in regards to collaborating with Hideo Kojima, not about the cancellation of Silent Hills. "You'll have to go after Konami for those answers", the source told IGN.
ORIGINAL STORY: The rift between famous developer Hideo Kojima and Metal Gear Solid publisher Konami was a big story when it was first reported and the fallout continues to claim victims.
Konami has announced that P.T., the playable teaser for the Kojima and Guillermo del Toro-led Silent Hills, will be removed from the PlayStation Network Store on April 29th. Such an ominous announcement led to fear that Silent Hills would be cancelled and del Toro has confirmed the worst: Silent Hills is indeed no more.
"It's not gonna happen and that breaks my greasy heart," del Toro lamented at the San Francisco Film Fest. This news will no doubt break thousands of more hearts across the world.
P.T. was met with near-unanimous praise from critics and gamers alike as the scariest survival horror experience in years, and the hype for Silent Hills was at a fever pitch. Sadly we will never get to see Kojima's and del Toro's dream realized.
