silent_hills_2Over the weekend it was reported that the Silent Hill’s teaser game PT would be pulled from the PlayStation Store, this led to speculation that it could also be spelling the end of the upcoming title and if comments made by some of the major players involved in making the game are true, it certainly looks like the game has been cancelled.

This supposedly came about when the game’s co-director Guillermo del Toro told attendees at a recent film festival in San Francisco that the game wasn’t going to happen. This was retweeted by del Toro’s assistant and was later picked up and confirmed by Norman Reedus who was supposed to portray the game’s protagonist (and also of the Walking Dead fame).

Reedus had tweeted, “Super bummed about this was really looking forward to it. Hopefully it’ll come back around. Sorry everyone.” This seemingly more or less confirms the game’s cancellation, although we have yet to hear from Konami officially. Many were already questioning PT’s future when it was revealed that Hideo Kojima, who would be co-directing the game with del Toro, would be leaving Konami and that Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain would be his last game.

No doubt if all of this is true, it will be very disappointing as PT was an extremely promising game and even though players only scratched the surface, it showed what the rest of the upcoming Silent Hills title could be. But hey, at this rate we reckon it could very easily achieve cult status at the very least.
