Silent Hills CANCELLED!

Anybody that was looking forward to the new silent hills game can bury their hopes and dreams in this shallow grave I've dug myself. Kojima's name has been removed from everything relating to Konami. The P.T. Demo is scheduled for removal from the PS4 market on the 29th. A press release went out officially cancelling Silent Hills. What this has in store for Metal Gear Solid: Phantom Pain is still unknown.

I really hope Kojima owns the rights to the engine they created for the Silent Hills game and makes his own franchise off the idea of Silent Hills. Konami don't seem to want to publish anything apart from mobile games anymore...

Yeah Koj/Kon seem to have had a major falling out over something recently.

It's cut me real deep. Hopefully something good will come from this because I'm sure Kojima would never stop making games.

The story I'm reading on some gaming sites now is that Konami are getting ready to exit the console game business, I would imagine Kojima will get snapped up/start another dev company but presumably anything mgs/hills related will remain with konami, tho the possibility of them selling whatever gaming ip was also mentioned. Jimquisition has an interesting vid about it, he seems to blame several years of corporate mismanagement & Konami ceo arrogance/ego.

Yeah konami only want to make cheesy micro transaction mobile games. I remember when I was a kid they were GIANTS in the gaming industry. It's quite sad. Link the vid please I'd like to watch it.
