You remember when many of us were squealing like lunatic fans for the new Silent Hill game starting Norman Reedus? Well, it’s time break out the handkerchief as the game has been officially cancelled. Yes, you read right. Out of ALL the online April Fool’s jokes, this one had to be actually true. Not amused…
As a fan of survival horror in general, this completely blows – and not in the good way. I remember hours stuck to the television screen with one of my best friends who was a hardcore fan of the franchise. The creepy ambiance. The crazy puzzles. The intricate story. Ugh! Loved it. Even when the movie came out and I haven’t heard about Silent Hill in a long while, a spark ignited in me as I remember the masterpiece Silent Hill was and continues to be. So you can imagine the excitement I got when I read about a Silent Hill game coming for this time’s new gen consoles.
But now it’s all a lie… THE CAKE IS A LIE!
The cancellation I’m pretty certain came as a ripple effect of Kojima leaving Konami after Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain is complete. Him leaving meant the Konami-Norman-Del Toro relationship to be non-existent. At least for now…Maybe someone will pick it up? …I AM ALLOWED TO HOPE!
Earlier when the teaser was out, Kojima had stated the new Silent Hills would make us so scared that it would “make you sh*t [our] pants.” How right he was. I am pretty sure many did when reading the game was not ever going to be completed. To make things even more “interesting,” the playable teaser on the PS4 was removed yesterday. If you didn’t play it, tough luck. People who have it don’t want to give it away. There are people who are willing to sell it – for a decent price of course. You might be able to take refuge on YouTube sanctuary and at least look at the beautiful thing that will never be.
