Starcraft: Ghost, The Last Guardian, Duke Nukem Forever, and even Valve are no stranger to this.

I'm not crossing my fingers for it to be cancelled or anything. I'm just saying, it's not an impossibility for us to go a long stretch of time without any official statement.

Surely to God Konami will at least have to address this at E3, right? There's no way they will be able to continue to dodge the question.

Apparently there was a big Japanese game industry awards and neither Kojima or Konami arrived to collect any of the awards they were given (including one for PT).

I mean, maybe people are reading too much into his absence with everything that has gone off lately, but it seems pretty strange that no one was there at all to collect.

Konami hasn't shown its face at E3 since it embarrassed the hell out of itself a few years back.

They've been there. They just don't do much of anything. Last year, they had their booth in the same spot, but they wouldn't let you film anything near there (granted, all they had was the Metal Gear trailer playing).
Who knows!

Okay, now this pisses me off. I haven't gotten a chance to play the game myself since I don't own a PS4, as I'm sure most of you guys don't as well. I love how something that got so much attention and love (for the most part) is now potentially screwed. Thanks Konami.

P.T is being removed from the PSN store. That pretty much means Silent Hills is dead. Whatever that game was going to be, it's dead now. But the worse part is? They're killing P.T. with it. And P.T. was it's own horror game that people bought a PS4 to play and experience. P.T. was a game that'll be known as a historical moment in gaming as a hidden teaser trailer in a cool game within itself (And was also given for free), and now that game is gonna die. It's gonna be murdered, and never played again, except for those who preserve it on an external harddrive, which I will buy for my PS4, just to keep this game from dying on my end. This is why I hate Publishers. Unlike movie studios that keep their crap alive for years and years, publishers just let their art rot and die, with hardly any care to preserve it at all.

Merged with current PT troubles thread for consistency.

This is looking uglier and uglier as time goes by. I'm worried that it might in fact, be cancelled.

Don't own a PS4 yet, but I went ahead and "purchased" it now. Hoping it will still be available to people who have it in their list. : \

While all signs point towards this being the end of "Silent Hills," this isn't the nail in the coffin just yet.

At this point I think it's probably a safe bet. I mean, there could be a chance that they're cutting Kojima out of the picture and starting fresh, but somehow I think that's overly optimistic.

This weird nonsense is going on too. I find the initial quote the use to be pretty interesting:

Quote:
The next project will challenge a certain type of taboo, if I mess up, I'll probably have to leave the industry. However, I don't want to pass by avoiding that. I turn 47 this year. It's been 24 years since I started making games. Today, I got an ally who would happily support me in that risk. Although it's just one person. For a start, it's good.


It's originally from 2010, but oddly relevant.

I hate to be one of those people, but it honestly seems like Silent Hill as a franchise is pretty fucked at this point. Konami's pretty much actively grinding it's nuts into the ground.

Do they not like money?

^Yeah, it looks like this could be the nail in the coffin for the series. What a waste. Konami has been making some strange choices.

Well, i'm glad i downloaded pt, and i'll definitely make sure i never delete it.

One can only experience true despair after bring given the hope that things were going to get better.

I think this is it. We reached the bad ending.

Not sure if this has been posted or not, but Del Toro is also saying it's not gonna happen.

That combined with PT being taken down is pretty much the nail in the coffin for me.

Is this the first time we've had a major Silent Hill title announced and canceled? I don't like this feeling, and I was even more cautious about this game than most. I'm not too worried that the series will go under completely, but despite it feeling like Downpour and Book of Memories was just yesterday, apparently this is the longest gap of time we've gone without a new Silent Hill game.

Like I said before, Silent Hills is pretty much unofficially cancelled. It doesn't mean the end for Silent Hill, but it is the end for this game. Think of it like Uncharted 4. Yes, we're still gonna get one. But the version that was originally announced with Amy Hennig as Creative Director is dead.

Its dead


Even if Konami does another Silent hill, it'll be more of the Downpour variety than the potential of 'Silent hills'

I guess there is always a chance they will hire someone on who knows what they are doing? ...But yet again they don't seem to care anymore so...yeah it isn't looking very good :(.
