Silent Hills PS4 Release Date, News, and Updates: Silent Hills Officially Cancelled Due to a Feud Between Kojima Productions and Konami
Kojima Productions and Konami have worked together for quite some time now, but it seems like this partnership has now ended due to disputes leading to a senior staff having restricted access to corporate internet and emails. The worst part, I think, is that it seems like because of this we won't be seeing Silent Hill on PS4.
Here's the latest on Silent Hill release date, news, and updates.
Recently Gamespot reported that there seems to be feud between Kojima Productions and Konami. Cyberland also reported that the cause of the feud was because Kojima Productions didn't allow Konami to use the Fox Engine in making Silent Hills.
Recently a playable teaser was released for Silent Hill, which has amazed gamers and have already thousands of followers waiting for its release. However with the recent feud between Konami and Kojima Productions, it seems like the release of Silent Hill is highly unlikely. Fans are truly devastated about the decision to pull out the game because of a feud.
Cyberland reported, "Silent Hills has been cancelled. Hideo Kojima did not allow Konami to use the Fox Engine to make the game and Konami has since put the game on ice and my sources tell me that the project is now effectively cancelled."
However it seems like only Silent Hill will be affected in the recent split up as Hideo Kojima assures fans that he is still involved in the upcoming, 'Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain' Hideo Kojima added, "I want to reassure fans that I am 100% involved and will continue working on 'Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, I'm determined to make it the greatest game I've directed to date. Don't miss it!"
Gamespot said, "Konami has begun erasing the Kojima Productions logo from all official Metal Gear art, and it has demoted [Hideo] Kojima off its executive team. Meanwhile, Kojima Productions' branding has also been removed from Twitter, the official Metal Gear website, and even the LA office listing."
With the split off between Kojima and Konami, Guillermo Del Toro finds himself in a middle of another cancelled project, unfortunately for reasons that are out of his control. The other project that was cancelled was with project with THQ for a supposed horror trilogy, inSANE.
Silent Hills never entered early development and was only able to produce the playable trailer.
